Peroxisome assembly factor 1 recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)

Biochem/physiol Actions

PEX2 (peroxisomal biogenesis factor 2) is a peroxisomal integral membrane protein belonging to the zinc finger protein family. This 35kDa protein consists of two transmembrane regions and a zinc RING domain at the C-terminus cytoplasmic end. It is majorly involved in the biogenesis of peroxisome. During synthesis, it translocates peroxisomal matrix protein after synthesizing on free cytosolic ribosomes. Later, it is moved to the peroxisome membrane. Mutation in the peroxisome synthesis causes a peroxisome biogenesis disorder (PBD) called Zellweger syndrome.

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 APREST72155.
