Detection of Human BRCA2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of Capan‑1 human pancreatic adenocarcinoma cell line, HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line, and U2OS human osteosarcoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.2 µg/mL of Human BRCA2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2476) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for BRCA2 at approximately 380 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

BRCA2 is a nuclear protein that acts as a tumor suppressor. Germline mutation of BRCA2 accounts for many cases of familial breast and ovarian cancer. At the cellular level, BRCA2 is involved in homologous recombination (HR), a form of double-strand break repair. BRCA2 interacts with the Rad51 recombinase, another protein critical for HR, to preserve chromosomal integrity.
