anti-Perilipin 2 (mouse C-terminus) guinea pig polyclonal, serum

Adipophilin/Perilipin 2 is an ubiquitous component of lipid droplets, found in milk fat globule membranes and on the surface of lipid droplets in various cultured cell lines. Detected in the glandular cells of lactating mammary gland, adrenal gland, Sertoli cells, in fat-accumulating hepatocytes. Adipocytes are negative.

Adipophilin / ADRP / PLIN2 (a member of the PLIN/PAT family) is a ubiquitous component of lipid droplets. It has been found in milk fat globule membranes and on the surface of lipid droplets in various cultured cell lines (see e.g. Heid et al.1998, 2013; Chong et al. 2011).
Polypeptide reacting: Specific for Adipophilin / ADRP / PLIN2, MW 46,646 (calculated from aa sequence data); apparent Mr 50,000 (after SDS-PAGE); pI 6.42
Adipophilin / PLIN2 is positively detected in the glandular cells of lactating mammary gland (ductal cells are negative), zona fasciculata of the adrenal gland, Sertoli cells of the testis, and in fat-accumulating hepatocytes; adipocytes are negative.
Reactivity on cultured cell lines: 3T3-L1 (mouse preadipocytes), OP9 (derived from mouse bone marrow), HL-1 (derived from AT-1 mouse cardiomyocyte tumor lineage)
