Prominin 2 in HepG2 Human Cell Line. Prominin 2 was detected in immersion fixed HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line using Mouse Anti-Human Prominin 2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2024) at 3 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cell surfaces. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.

Background: Prominin 2
Prominin 2 is a pentaspan membrane glycoprotein predominantly expressed in neuroepithelial cells, hematopoietic stem cells and epithelial cells of the adult kidney and digestive tract (1, 2). Prominin 2 is a 112-kDa glycoprotein structurally
related to prominin 1 (CD133). The amino acid identity between prominin 1 and prominin 2 is
(<30%), but they exhibit some redundant functions.
