Western blot analysis of ABL2 over-expressed 293 cell line, cotransfected with ABL2 Validated Chimera RNAi ( Cat # H00000027-R01V ) (Lane 2) or non-transfected control (Lane 1). Blot probed with ABL2 monoclonal antibody (M03) clone 6D5 (Cat # H00000027-M03 ). GAPDH ( 36.1 kDa ) used as specificity and loading control.
This gene encodes a member of the Abelson family of nonreceptor tyrosine protein kinase. The protein is highly similar to the ABL1 protein, including the tyrosine kinase, SH2 and SH3 domains, and has a role in cytoskeletal rearrangements by its C-terminal F-actin- and microtubule-binding sequences. This gene is expressed in both normal and tumor cells, and is involved in translocation with the ETV6 gene in leukemia. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different protein isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq
