General description

Trans-Golgi network integral membrane protein 2 (TGOLN2), also known as trans-Golgi network 46 (TGN46), is encoded by the gene mapped to human chromosome 2p11.2. It is a heterodimeric type I integral membrane protein. TGOLN2 has a highly conserved N terminus which consists of a signal peptide. The C terminus comprises part of the lumenal domain, a membrane spanning region and cytoplasmic tail.


Anti-TGN38 recognizes rat TGN38


Synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acid residues of rat TGN38 with C-terminal added cysteine, conjugated to KLH.

Target description

TGN38 (Trans-Golgi network protein, 38-kDa) is a resident integral membrane protein of the trans-Golgi network (TGN), which cycles constitutively between the TGN and the plasma membrane, returning via endosomes.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phos­phate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.

Storage and Stability

For continuous use, store at 2-8 °C for up to one month. For extended storage, freeze in working aliquots. Repeated freezing and thawing, or storage in “frostfree” freezers, is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify the solution by centrifugation before use. Working dilutions should be discarded if not used within 12 hours.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Trans-Golgi network integral membrane protein 2 (TGOLN2) cycles between the trans-Golgi network (TGN) and the cell surface via an early endosomal compartment. This movement is mediated by a tyrosine-based tetra peptide signal (SDYQRL) in the cytoplasmic domain. It plays an important role in the formation of exocytic vesicles at the TGN by functioning as a receptor for complexes of a cytoplasmic protein known as p62 and one GTP-binding protein. The cytoplasmic domain of TGOLN2 binds to the complex and is essential for budding process. It mediates the coupling of the segregation of secretory proteins to the budding of exocytic vesicles. The cytosolic domain of TGOLN2 interacts with AP2 clathrin adaptor complexes and also with the coiled coil region of a protein called neurabin.
