This affinity purified antibody is directed against human SLIT-2 protein. A BLAST analysis was used to suggest reactivity with this protein from human and chicken based on 100% homology for the immunogen sequence. Expect cross reactivity with SLIT-2 from Tetraodon nigroviridis , as only a single amino acid residue change is found within the immunogen sequence (94% positive by BLAST). The core 13 amino acids of the immunogen are also 100% homologous to SLIT-2 from mouse, rat, bovine and Xenopus laevis. Cross reactivity with SLIT-2 homologues from other sources has not been determined.
SLIT2 are ligands for Robo receptors and play a vital role for axonal migration/navigation during neural development. A number of cleavage products through alternate splicing are reported in the literature for SLIT2 proteins. The C-terminal cleavage proteins are more diffusible than the larger N-terminal protein that is more tightly cell associated. SLIT2 protein is expressed in tissues such as fetal lung, kidney, and adult spinal cord.
