The gene basonuclin-2 (BNC2) is mapped to human chromosome 9p22. It belongs to basonuclin zinc-finger family of transcription factors. BNC2 transcripts are mainly present in tissues of the reproductive system (ovary and testis), kidney and skin. The protein is localized in the nucleus.

Basonuclin-2 (BNC2) is associated with skin color variation and skin cancer risk. It also contributes to the occurrence of facial pigmented spots during aging. BNC2 has been shown to be associated with epithelial ovarian cancer. Knockdown of BNC2 causes distal urethral defects in mouse model.
Features and Benefits
Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.
Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
- IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
- Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.
Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide
