General description

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.

Target description

Nectin-2 (UniProt: Q92692; also known as Herpes virus entry mediator B, Herpesvirus entry mediator B, HveB, Nectin cell adhesion molecule 2, Poliovirus receptor-related protein 2, CD112) is encoded by the NECTIN2 (also known as HVEB, PRR2, PVRL2) gene (Gene ID: 5819) in human. Nectin-2 is a single-pass type I membrane protein that displays ubiquitous expression. It is a Ca2+-independent cell-cell adhesion molecule that regulates cell adhesion between epithelial cells through the formation of transdimers between adjacent cells. Nectin-2-mediated cell adhesion is shown to induce the formation of E-cadherin-based adherens junctions followed by the formation of claudin based tight junctions. Nectin-2 also serves as a modulator of T-cell signaling and it can be either a co-stimulator of T-cell function, or a co-inhibitor depending on the receptor it binds to. Upon binding to CD226, it stimulates T-cell proliferation and cytokine production, including that of IL-2, IL-5, IL10, IL-13, and Interferon-g. Its interaction with PVRIG, inhibits T-cell proliferation. These interactions are shown to be competitive in nature. Over-expression of Nectin-2 has been reported in breast and ovarian cancer tissues and in several cancer cell lines. It is synthesized with a signal peptide (aa 1-31), which is subsequently cleaved off to generate the mature form that contains an extracellular domain (aa 32-360), a transmembrane domain (aa 361-381), and a cytoplasmic domain (aa 382-538). Nectin-2 has one Ig-Like V-type domain (aa 32-156) and two Ig-like C2 type domains (aa 162-256 and 261-345). This ZooMAb recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals.
