ZooMAb antibodies represent an entirely new generation of recombinant monoclonal antibodies.

Each ZooMAb antibody is manufactured using our proprietary recombinant expression system, purified to homogeneity, and precisely dispensed to produce robust and highly reproducible lot-to-lot consistency. Only top-performing clones are released for use by researchers. Each antibody is validated for high specificity and affinity across multiple applications, including its most commonly used application. ZooMAb antibodies are reliably available and ready to ship when you need them.

Microtubule-associated protein 2 (UniProt: P11137; also known as MAP-2) is encoded by the MAP2 gene (Gene ID: 4133) in human. MAPs are a family of thermostable cytoskeletal proteins that bind to and stabilize microtubules. MAP4 is expressed ubiquitously while MAP1 and MAP2 are expressed primarily in neurons. MAP2 is an abundant neuronal cytoskeletal protein that binds to tubulin and stabilizes microtubules against depolymerization. In the central nervous system, MAP2 is confined to neuronal cell bodies and dendrites. However, some axons may also have small amounts of MAP2. It is shown to be essential for the development and maintenance of neuronal morphology. Three primary isoforms of MAP-2, the high molecular weight MAP2a and MAP2b, and the low molecular weight MAP2c (resulting from alternate splicing of the MAP2 gene) have been identified in neurons. The low molecular weight isoform, MAP2c, is expressed in developing brain and is down-regulated during brain maturation, whereas the high molecular weight MAP2b is expressed in both developing and adult brain. The MAP2a appears only after brain maturation. All these forms bind to microtubules through a domain near the carboxyl terminus that contains either three or four similar repeats of a 31-amino-acid motif. MAP2 can be phosphorylated at serine residues in K-X-G-S motifs by MAP/microtubule affinity-regulating kinase (MARK1 or MARK2) that causes its detachment from microtubules and results in their disassembly. This ZooMAb recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals.
