General description

PTGS2 (prostaglandin-endoperoxidase synthase 2) is mapped to human chromosome 1q25.2-q25.3. The protein exists as 72 and 74kDa glycoforms.

Immunogen

Prostaglandin G/H synthase 2 precursor recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)

Application

Anti-PTGS2 antibody produced in rabbit, a Prestige Antibody, is developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project . Each antibody is tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues. These images can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link. The antibodies are also tested using immunofluorescence and western blotting. To view these protocols and other useful information about Prestige Antibodies and the HPA, visit sigma.com/prestige.

Biochem/physiol Actions

COX2 (Cyclooxygenase-2) gene encodes an enzyme involved in prostanoid synthesis. It converts arachidonate to prostaglandin H2 (PGH2). It is involved in the production of inflammatory prostaglandins. It is an inducible isozyme of prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase that is regulated by inflammation and mitogenesis, growth factors and cytokines. It is inhibited by nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin and ibuprofen. This inhibition reduces inflammation, pain, and fever. Long-term usage of these drugs reduces the risk of fatal thrombotic events, development of colon cancer and Alzheimer′s disease.

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.

Linkage

Corresponding Antigen APREST83041.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide
