Detection of Human/Mouse/Rat ROCK2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line, COLO 205 human colorectal adenocarcinoma cell line, DA3 mouse myeloma cell line, CH‑1 mouse B cell lymphoma cell line, and PC‑12 rat adrenal pheochromocytoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Human/Mouse/Rat ROCK2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF4790) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF019). A specific band was detected for ROCK2 at approximately 160 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

ROCK2/II (Rho-associated protein kinase 2; also Rho-kinase alpha ) is a member of the AGC serine/threonine protein kinase family. ROCK2 is a downstream target of activated RhoA. Its activation results in myosin phosphorylation with subsequent muscle contraction. Human ROCK2 is 1388 amino acids (aa) in length, and appears to be present as a dimer. It contains a protein kinase domain (aa 92‑354), a coiled-coil region (aa 429‑1131) and a zinc-finger region (aa 1260‑1315). Two isoforms show an alternate start site at M686, and a three aa substitution for the N-terminal 444 amino acids. Over aa 641‑846, human ROCK2 shares 94% and 96% aa identity with mouse and canine ROCK2, respectively.
