PA1-661 detects dynamin II (Dyn2) from rat, mouse, and human tissues and cells.
PA1-661 has been successfully used in Western blot procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~100 kDa protein representing Dyn2 from HeLa cell lysate.
PA1-661 immunizing peptide corresponds to amino acid residues 760-779 from human Dyn2. This sequence is 95% conserved in mouse and rat Dyn2. PA1-661 immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-056) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
Dynamins represent one of the subfamilies of GTP-binding proteins. These proteins share considerable sequence similarity over the N-terminal portion of the molecule, which contains the GTPase domain. Dynamins are associated with microtubules. They have been implicated in cell processes such as endocytosis and cell motility, and in alterations of the membrane that accompany certain activities such as bone resorption by osteoclasts. Dynamins bind many proteins that bind actin and other cytoskeletal proteins. Dynamins can also self-assemble, a process that stimulates GTPase activity. Five alternatively spliced transcripts encoding different proteins have been described. Additional alternatively spliced transcripts may exist, but their full-length nature has not been determined.
