MA5-12826 has been successfully used in immunofluorescence analysis of Map2 in human glutamate neurons derived from iPSCs.
Microtubule Associated Protein 2 exists in two high molecular weight forms (MAP2a and MAP2b) and a low molecular weight form (MAP2c). The expression of MAP2 is developmentally regulated and its multiple forms arise by alternative splicing of a single gene. The proteins of this family are thought to be involved in microtubule assembly, which is an essential step in neurogenesis. The products of similar genes in rat and mouse are neuron-specific cytoskeletal proteins that are enriched in dendrites, implicating a role in determining and stabilizing dendritic shape during neuron development.
