Immunohistochemistry analysis of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded human lung (respiratory epithelium) tissue stained using a RAP2A polyclonal antibody (Product # PA5-23298) 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.

RAP2A is a signaling protein involved in small GTPase mediated signal transduction activated by guanine nucleotide-exchange factors (GEF) EPAC and EPAC2, in a cAMP-dependent manner, and GFR. This membrane protein belongs to the small GTPase superfamily and Ras family and contains domains required for GTP binding and a Ras-like C-terminal motif for post-translational lipid binding and subsequent anchoring to the plasma membrane. Apart from having a possible role in membrane shedding, RAP2A also functions as a slowly responding molecular switch in the RAP1A signaling cascade and also interacts with ARHGAP29, the putative specific effector of RAP2A.
