Caveolin‑2 in HeLa Human Cell Line. Caveolin‑2 was detected in formaldehyde fixed HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line using Goat Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat Caveolin‑2 Biotinylated Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # BAF5788) at 5 µg/mL overnight at 4° C. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Streptavidin (red; Catalog # NL999) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to caveolae.

Caveolin-2 is a cell membrane-associated member of the caveolin family of proteins. Although its predicted MW is 17 kDa, it runs anomalously at 21‑22 kDa on SDS‑PAGE. Caveolin-2 is not ubiquitous, but it is found in divergent cell types such as smooth muscle, endothelial, and skeletal muscle cells, plus fibroblasts and adipocytes. When expressed alone, Caveolin-2 forms monomers and homodimers; when expressed with Caveolin-1, it exists as part of a 150 kDa, Caveolin-1 associated oligomeric complex. Human Caveolin-2 is 162 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains a central membrane-embedded sequence (aa 87‑107) flanked by two cytoplasmic domains (aa 1‑86 and 108‑162). Caveolin-2 has been found phosphorylated at tyrosines 19 and 27, and at serines 20, 23 and 36.
