|Application ||IF, WB|
|Other Accession||Q5XHH8, Q5G6V9, P45591, P21566, Q148F1|
|Predicted||Bovine, Chicken, Xenopus|
|Calculated MW||H=19,17;M=19 KDa|
|Other Names||Cofilin-2, Cofilin, muscle isoform, CFL2|
|Target/Specificity||This CFL2 antibody is generated from a rabbit immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 130-144 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human CFL2.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||CFL2 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Controls reversibly actin polymerization and depolymerization in a pH-sensitive manner. Its F-actin depolymerization activity is regulated by association with CSPR3 (PubMed:19752190). It has the ability to bind G- and F-actin in a 1:1 ratio of cofilin to actin. It is the major component of intranuclear and cytoplasmic actin rods. Required for muscle maintenance. May play a role during the exchange of alpha-actin forms during the early postnatal remodeling of the sarcomere (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus matrix. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Note=Colocalizes with CSPR3 in the Z line of sarcomeres.|
|Tissue Location||Isoform CFL2b is expressed predominantly in skeletal muscle and heart. Isoform CFL2a is expressed in various tissues|
