Gene Information

human ... SYNE2(23224)

General description

Nesprin-2 is a protein encoded by the SYNE2 gene in humans. It is encoded by a large gene containing several internal promoters that produce shorter isoforms.† It consists of 116 exons, which encode a protein of 800kDa.


Nesprin-2 recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)


Anti-SYNE2 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

Biochem/physiol Actions

Nesprin-2 is a highly versatile tissue specific intracellular scaffold protein. It has a potential function beyond cytoplasmic-nuclear coupling. The gene is down-regulated by nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and highly expressed in many cancers. It may be a potential novel oncogene in human cancer cells and NSAIDs could decrease its expression. It possesses a scaffolding function at the nuclear membrane and may have a potential involvement in human 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.


Corresponding Antigen APREST70658.

Physical form

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