PA5-29326 targets Hexokinase II in WB, IF and IHC(P) applications and shows reactivity with Human, mouse and horse samples. Strong reactivity with Hexokinase 2 was observed in Western Blots using horse endometrial samples and mouse brain lysates. No reactivity in WB could be observed using mouse endometrial whole cell lysates.
The PA5-29326 immunogen is recombinant fragment corresponding to a region within amino acids 53 and 342 of Human Hexokinase II.
Store product as a concentrated solution. Centrifuge briefly prior to opening the vial. For short-term storage (1-2 weeks), product can be stored at 4°C. For long-term storage, aliquot and store product at -20° C or below, avioiding multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Hexokinases phosphorylate glucose to produce glucose-6-phosphate, the first step in most glucose metabolism pathways. This gene encodes hexokinase 2, the predominant form found in skeletal muscle. It localizes to the outer membrane of mitochondria. Expression of this gene is insulin-responsive, and studies in rat suggest that it is involved in the increased rate of glycolysis seen in rapidly growing cancer cells.
