Human/Mouse EGLN1/PHD2 Antibody Summary
Accession # Q9QZT9
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 and Mouse EGLN1/PHD2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of PC-3 human prostate cancer cell line, HEK293T human embryonic kidney cell line, and NIH-3T3 mouse embryonic fibroblast cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Rabbit Anti-Human/Mouse EGLN1/PHD2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB76801) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rabbit IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF008). A specific band was detected for EGLN1/PHD2 at approximately 50 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
EGLN1/PHD2 in Human Kidney. EGLN1/PHD2 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human kidney using Rabbit Anti-Human/Mouse EGLN1/PHD2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB76801) at 3 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Rabbit IgG VisUCyte™ HRP Polymer Antibody (Catalog # VC003). Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using DAB (brown) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm and nuclei in convoluted tubules.

PHD2 (Prolyl Hydroxylase Domain-containing protein 2; also HPH2, EGLN1 and HIF-PH2) is a 45-47 kDa dioxygenase member of the PH family of enzymes. It is ubiquitously expressed, and serves to regulate the availability of the oxygen-sensitive HIF transcription factor. Active HIF1 alpha is a heterodimer of alpha - and beta -subunits and when intact, promotes VEGF and EPO production. The beta -subunit is constitutively expressed, while alpha -subunit levels are regulated by intracellular oxygen concentration. At normoxic levels, the alpha -subunit is hydroxylated on Pro by one of three PHDs, inducing its ubiquitination/degradation. The hydroxylation event requires oxygen, and thus PH activity (particularly PHD2) is a measure of a cell's oxygen concentration. Human PHD2 is 426 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains an NES (aa 6-20), a Zn-finger region (aa 21-58), and a catalytic domain (aa 291-392). There are five nitrosylated cysteines plus one acetylated alanine. Two isoform variants are known, one that shows a deletion of aa 338-359, and another that contains a 17 aa substitution for aa 58-175. Over aa 157-426, human PHD2 shares 93% aa sequence identity with mouse PHD2.
