Description

Immunogen

synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 254-271 of rat or mouse aquaporin 2 (with additional N-terminal lysine and tyrosine) conjugated to KLH with glutaraldehyde. The epitope is identical in rat and mouse and highly conserved in human.

General description

Aquaporin 2 (AQP2) is a water channel protein that regulates water balance in renal connecting tubules and collecting ducts. AQP2 is activated by anti-diuretic hormone and subsequently facilitates water inflow in renal cells. This protein also interacts with integrin to modulate epithelial cell morphogenesis and cell movement . Anti-Water Channel Aquaporin 2 antibody recognizes aquaporin 2 from rat by immunoblotting. The antibody also reacts with mouse and human AQP2.

Physical form

Lyophilized from a solution containing phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 1% BSA, and 0.05% sodium azide.

Preparation Note

Isolated on immobilized Protein A

Application

Anti-Water Channel Aquaporin 2 antibody is also suitable for use in chemiluminescent western blot (1:200-1:1000), and immunoblot.

Immunohistochemistry was performed on 10% formalin-fixed parraffin embedded rat kidney sections using rabbit anti-AQP2 at a concentration of 5μg/ml. Use of anti-AQP2 allowed visualization of the medullary thick ascending limb and collecting ducts.
