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.
Detection of Human Methionine Aminopeptidase 2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of COLO 205 human colorectal adenocarcinoma cell line, LS180 human colorectal adenocarcinoma cell line, and HT-29 human colon adenocarcinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human Methionine Aminopeptidase 2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3795) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for Methionine Aminopeptidase 2 at approximately 70 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.

Background: Methionine Aminopeptidase 2/METAP2
The human METAP2 gene encodes Methionine Aminopeptidase 2, a member of the M24 family of metalloproteases. METAPs catalyze the removal of the initiator methionine residue from nascent peptides (1) and are essential for cell growth (2). METAP2 plays an important role in the development of different types of cancer (3) and has been a novel target for developing anti-cancer drugs.
