The antigen is a peptide corresponding to amino acid residues from the C-terminal region of human PLC β2.

Prepared from pooled rabbit serum by affinity purification using a column to which the peptide immunogen was coupled.

Biological Significance: ExpandCollapse

Phospholipases are quite common enzymes that are present in a broad range of organisms, including bacteria, yeast, plants, animals, and viruses. Phospholipase C (PLC) constitutes a class of enzymes that cleave phospholipids on the diacylglycerol (DAG) side of the phosphodiester bond (Cocco et al., 2015). A growing body of evidence supports the role of phospholipase C (PLC) in the invasion and metastasis of different tumors, including breast cancer (Bertagnolo et al., 2006). PLC-β2 has been shown to be required for sweet, umami and bitter taste perception in mammals (Zhang et al., 2003). Data also suggests that PLC-β2 serves an unappreciated role assembling components of the p38MAPK signaling module (Barr et al., 2002).

100 µl in 10 mM HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 µg BSA per ml and 50% glycerol. Adequate amount of material to conduct 10-mini Western Blots.

Storage at -20°C is recommended, as aliquots may be taken without freeze/thawing due to presence of 50% glycerol. Stable for at least 1 year at-20°C.
