Axin‑2 in SW480 Human Cell Line. Axin‑2 was detected in immersion fixed SW480 human colorectal adenocarcinoma cell line using Mouse Anti-Human Axin‑2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6078) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm.

Axin-2, also known as Conductin, is a 95 kDa cytoplasmic protein that inhibits Wnt signaling and promotes epithelial-mesenchymal transition. Axin 2 binds to beta -catenin, glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3 beta ), and the tumor suppressor APC. Loss of Axin-2 function is linked to carcinogenesis as well as abnormal bone and tooth development. Within aa 550-760, human Axin-2 shares 82% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat Axin-2.
