Data Examples

Western Blot Detection of Mouse and Rat Plexin A2 by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Mouse and Rat Plexin A2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of bEnd.3 mouse endothelioma cell line and rat embryonic cortical neuron cells. PVDF Membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat Plexin A2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5486) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF019). A specific band was detected for Plexin A2 at approximately 210 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.

Flow Cytometry Detection of Plexin A2 in bEnd.3 Mouse Cell Line by Flow Cytometry. View Larger

Detection of Plexin A2 in bEnd.3 Mouse Cell Line by Flow Cytometry. bEnd.3 mouse endothelioma cell line was stained with Goat Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat Plexin A2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5486, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # AB-108-C, open histogram), followed by Allophycocyanin-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0108).

Immunocytochemistry Plexin A2 in bEnd.3 Mouse Cell Line. View Larger

Plexin A2 in bEnd.3 Mouse Cell Line. Plexin A2 was detected in immersion fixed bEnd.3 mouse endothelioma cell line using Goat Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat Plexin A2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5486) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL001) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cell surfaces and cytoplasm. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.

Plexin A2 in HUVEC Human Cells. Plexin A2 was detected in immersion fixed HUVEC human umbilical vein endothelial cells using Goat Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat Plexin A2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5486) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL001) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cell surfaces and cytoplasm. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.

Simple Western Detection of Mouse Plexin A2 by Simple Western<sup>TM</sup>. View Larger

Detection of Mouse Plexin A2 by Simple WesternTM. Simple Western lane view shows lysates of bEnd.3 mouse endothelioma cell line, loaded at 0.2 mg/mL. A specific band was detected for Plexin A2 at approximately 246 kDa (as indicated) using 10 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat Plexin A2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5486) followed by 1:50 dilution of HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF109). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using the 66-440 kDa separation system.

Background: Plexin A2

Plexin A2 (also OCT) is a 220-230 kDa member of the plexin-A subfamily, plexin family of proteins. It is found on cerebellar granule cells, sensory neurons, and cardiac neural crest cells. It participates in cell migration and axon guidance, and does so by serving as a receptor for Sema6A and B, and as a coreceptor with neuropilin-1 for Sema3A and C. Mature mouse Plexin A2 is an 1860 amino acid (aa) type I transmembrane glycoprotein. It contains a 1203 aa extracellular domain (ECD) and a 636 aa cytoplasmic region. The ECD contains one Sema domain (aa 35-508), three PSI domains (aa 510-855) and four IPT regions (aa 858-1228). There is one alternate start site 10 aa upstream of the standard start site. Over aa 35-1237, mouse Plexin A2 shares 96% aa sequence identity with human Plexin A2.
