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

New specific marker for liposarcoma. Adipophilin/Perilipin 2 is present in milk fat globule membranes and on the surface of lipid droplets in various cultured cell lines; inducible by etomoxir. Detected in the glandular cells of lactating mammary gland, adrenal gland, Sertoli cells, in fat-accumulating hepatocytes of alcoholic cirrhotic fatty liver; In CD68-positive macrophages. Adipocytes are negative.

Adipophilin/ ADRP/ PLIN2 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 Heid et al. 1998 & 2013; for review see Targett-Adams et al. 2003); inducible by etomoxir.
Enhanced expression of Adipophilin/ ADRP/ PLIN2 is a useful marker for pathologies characterized by increased lipid droplet accumulation. Such diseases include atheroma, steatosis, obesity and certain cases of liposarcoma. It also seems to be a potent marker for atherosclerosis.
ADRP can also be used to study the virus entry via lipid droplets (see Hope et al. 2002).
Polypeptide reacting: Adipophilin/ ADRP/ PLIN2, MW 48,100 (calculated from aa sequence data); apparent Mr 52,000 (after SDS-PAGE); pI 6.72
Tissue Immunolocalization: Adipophilin 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 of alcoholic cirrhotic fatty liver; adipocytes are negative. Also positively stained are lipid-storing CD 68-positive macrophages.
