Immunofluorescence analysis of TGM2 was performed using 70% confluent log phase SH-SY5Y cells. The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde for 10 minutes, permeabilized with 0.1% Triton™ X-100 for 10 minutes, and blocked with 1% BSA for 1 hour at room temperature. The cells were labeled with anti-Transglutaminase 2 (14G2) Mouse Monoclonal Antibody (LFMA0094) at 2ug/ml in 0.1% BSA and incubated for 3 hours at room temperature and then labeled with Goat anti-Mouse IgG (H+L) Superclonal™ Secondary Antibody, Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugate (A28175) at a dilution of 1:2000 for 45 minutes at room temperature (Panel a: green). Nuclei (Panel b: blue) were stained with SlowFade® Gold Antifade Mountant with DAPI (S36938). F-actin (Panel c: red) was stained with Alexa Fluor® 555 Rhodamine Phalloidin (Product # R415, 1:300). Panel d represents the merged image showing cytosolic localization. Panel e shows the no primary antibody control. The images were captured at 60X magnification.

Transglutaminase (TGase) catalyses the crosslink of proteins by forming e-(g-glutamyl) lysine isopeptide bonds and requires the binding of Ca2+ for its activity. In mammals, eight distinct TGase isoenzymes have been identified. Tissue transglutaminase (tTGase), also known as TGase 2, has four distinct domains: N-terminal b-sandwich, catalytic core and two C-terminal b-barrel domains. tTGase may have a role in cell death, cell proliferation, cell differentiation, and receptor-mediated endocytosis. In the Alzheimer's disease brain, the elevated tTGase activity is manifested by polymerization of a number of proteins, including Ab peptide, b-amyloid precursor protein and the tau protein, with formation of neurofibrillary tangles.
