|Specificity||Specific for MAP 2; recognizes all four isoforms.|
|Matching control protein/peptide||188-0P|
WB: Due to its large size, MAP 2 requires special gel-electrophoresis and Western blot protocols for visualization by immunoblotting. Excellent results can be obtained with the 4-12% TRIS-glycine gradient gels from anamed or NuPAGE 3-8% TRIS-Acetate gradient gels from invitrogen.
There are two major classes of heat stable microtubule associated proteins (MAPs): MAP 2, and tau. Both protein classes are involved in the regulation of microtubule polymerization in cells.
Four differentially regulated isoforms of MAP 2 have been described so far.
