Scientific Data

Western Blot Detection of Human NF2/Merlin antibody by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human NF2/Merlin by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line and human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC). PVDF Membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human NF2/Merlin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5616) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for NF2/Merlin at approximately 70 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: NF2/Merlin

NF2 (Neurofibromin-2; also Merlin) is a 70‑75 kDa tumor suppressor protein belonging to the ERM (ezrin, radixin, moesin) family of proteins. It participates in contact‑mediated cell adhesion, thereby blocking cell proliferation and migration. Human NF2 is 595 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains three general regions. There is an N‑terminal FERM domain (aa 1‑302), an alpha -helical rod central region (aa 303‑478), and a unique carboxy-terminal domain (aa 479‑595). Confluence requires an absence of phosphorylation at Ser516 and Ser10. There are multiple potential splice variants. Four short forms less than 260 aa in length lack the aa range used for antigen immunization. There are at least eight additional isoforms that basically show an alternate start site coupled to an 11 aa substitution for aa 579‑595. Lack of NF2 is associated with neurofibromatosis type II.
