Detection of Human/Mouse/Rat Vang-like Protein 2/ VANGL2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of mouse kidney, human and rat brain tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat Vang-like Protein 2/VANGL2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF4815) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for Vang-like Protein 2/VANGL2 at approximately 65 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.
Vang-like Protein 2/VANGL2 in Mouse Embryo. Vang-like Protein 2/VANGL2 was detected in immersion fixed frozen sections of mouse embryo (E15.5) using Sheep Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat Vang-like Protein 2/VANGL2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF4815) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Sheep HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS019) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Lower panel shows a lack of labeling when primary antibodies are omitted and tissue is stained only with secondary antibody followed by incubation with detection reagents. Specific staining was localized to developing spinal cord. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Frozen Tissue Sections.

Background: Vang-like Protein 2/VANGL2
VANGL2 (van Gogh-like protein 2; also Strabismus and Ltap) is a 65 kDa member of the Vang family of proteins. It is found in the membranes of embryonic neurons and epithelium where it associates with DVL1-3 and various frizzleds. VANGL2 mutations are associated with neural tube defects. Human VANGL2 is a 521 amino acid (aa) 4-transmembrane protein that contains an N-terminal (aa 1‑108) and C-terminal (aa 239‑521) cytoplasmic domain. There is a Ser-rich region in the N-terminus (aa 5‑20) and a PDZ-binding motif over aa 506‑521. Over aa 241‑521, human, mouse and rat show total identity in amino acid sequence.
