Gene Information

General description

The gene FAM160B2 (family with sequence similarity 160 member B2) is mapped to human chromosome 8p21.3. The FAM160B2 mRNA is a target for microRNA miR-483-5p.


UPF0518 protein FAM160B2 recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)


All Prestige Antibodies Powered by Atlas Antibodies are developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project (www.proteinatlas.org)and as a result, are supported by the most extensive characterization in the industry.

The Human Protein Atlas project can be subdivided into three efforts: Human Tissue Atlas, Cancer Atlas, and Human Cell Atlas. The antibodies that have been generated in support of the Tissue and Cancer Atlas projects have been tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues and through the recent efforts of the Human Cell Atlas project, many have been characterized by immunofluorescence to map the human proteome not only at the tissue level but now at the subcellular level. These images and the collection of this vast data set can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link.

Biochem/physiol Actions

FAM160B2 (family with sequence similarity 160 member B2) exhibits anti-apoptosis activity. It is a protein kinase A anchoring protein (AKAP) and participates in PKA (protein kinase A) phosphorylation of HSP70 (heat shock protein 70). FAM160B2 is also involved in hepatocellular carcinoma and promotes tumorigenesis.

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 APREST76318.

Physical form

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