Human Glypican 2 Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Detects human Glypican 2 in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs and Western blots, approximately 45% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse Glypican 2 is observed.
Polyclonal Goat IgG
Antigen Affinity-purified
Mouse myeloma cell line NS0-derived recombinant human Glypican 2
Accession # Q8N158
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied either lyophilized or as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
Endotoxin Level
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.


Recommended Concentration
Western Blot
0.1 µg/mL
Recombinant Human Glypican 2 (Catalog # 2304-GP)
5-15 µg/mL
Immersion fixed frozen sections of mouse embryo (E13.5)
Blockade of Receptor-ligand Interaction
In a functional ELISA, 1-4 µg/mL of this antibody will block 50% of the binding of 25 ng/mL of Recombinant Human Midkine (Catalog # 258-MD) to immobilized Recombinant Human Glypican 2 (Catalog # 2304-GP) coated at 4 µg/mL (100 µL/well). At 200 μg/mL, this antibody will block >90% of the binding.

Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.

Background: Glypican 2

The glypicans (GPC) constitute a family of heparan sulfate proteoglycans that are attached to the cell surface by a lycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor. Six members of this family have been identified in mammals (GPC1‑GPC6). All glypican core proteins contain an N‑terminal signal peptide, a large globular cysteine-rich domain (CRD) with 14 invariant cysteine residues, a stalk-like region containing the heparan sulfate attachment sites, and a C-terminal GPI attachment site. Based on the degree of their amino acid sequence similarity, two subfamilies of glypicans have been defined. One subfamily (sharing from 35‑63% sequence homology) includes GPC1, 2, 4, and 6, while the second subfamily (sharing 54% sequence identity) includes GPC3 and 5. Proteins between the two subfamilies also share 17‑25% sequence similarity (1‑4). Glypicans are widely expressed in adult and fetal tissues. During embryonic development, the expression level of the various glypicans changes in a stage and tissue specific manner. GPC2, also known as cerebroglycan, is primarily expressed in developing neuronal tissues including the brain, spinal cord, dorsal root ganglia, and cranial nerves. It is found on the tracts of actively growing axons (5). Cell surface GPC2 binds midkine, indicating midkine‑GPC2 interaction may participate in neuronal cell migration and neurite outgrowth (6).
