For reconstitution, we recommend adding 100 µL distilled water to a final antibody concentration of about 1 mg/mL. To use this carrier-free antibody for conjugation experiments, we strongly recommend performing another round of desalting. (Zeba Spin Desalting Columns, 7KMWCO, 0.5 mL, Product # 89882)
IGF2BP2 is a member of the IGF-II mRNA-binding protein (IMP) family. It recruits target transcripts to cytoplasmic protein-RNA complexes. The protein contains several four KH domains and two RRM domains. It functions by binding to the 5' UTR of the insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF2) mRNA and regulating IGF2 translation. Alternate transcriptional splice variants, encoding different isoforms, have been characterized. Autoantibodies against IGF2BP2 are detected in sera from some patients with hepatocellular carcinoma.
