Immunohistochemistry analysis of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded human prostate stained using a ACAP2 polyclonal antibody (Product # PA5-23302) at 10 ug/ml. Staining of formalin-fixed tissues is enhanced by boiling tissue sections in 10 mM sodium citrate buffer, pH 6.0 for 10-20 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 min.

ACAP2 is a transport carrier belonging to the Centaurin family with three ANK repeats, an Arf-GAP domain, a BAR domain, and a PH domain. ACAP2, a GTPase-activating protein (GAP) for ADP ribosylation factor 6 (ARF6) has robust constitutive ARF6 GAP activity, where the GAP activity is stimulated by phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2) and phosphatidic acid but has little activity toward ARF1 and is known to control the return of ARF to the inactive GDB-bound shots. ACAP2, along with ACAP1, is targeted by phosphatidyl inositol (3, 4, 3) triphosphate inhibiting the formation of PDGF-induced dorsal membrane ruffles in NIH3T3 fibroblasts when overexpressed. ACAP2 is phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR. Expression is wide-spread with the highest level in lung.
