Detection of Human Relaxin-2 by Western Blot.|
Western blot shows lysates of human placenta. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Rat Anti-Human Relaxin‑2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2804) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF005). Specific bands were detected for Relaxin-2 at approximately 8 kDa and 27 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
|cAMP production Induced by Relaxin‑2 and Neutralization by Human Relaxin‑2 Antibody. Recombinant Human Relaxin‑2 (Catalog # 3596-RN) induces cAMP production in the THP‑1 human acute monocytic leukemia cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line), as measured by cAMP Parameter Assay Kit (Catalog # KGE002B). cAMP production elicited by Recombinant Human Relaxin‑2 (7.5 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Rat Anti-Human Relaxin‑2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2804). The ND50 is typically 1.5‑6.0 µg/mL.|
Human Relaxin-2/H2 is a 6 kDa member of the insulin/relaxin gene superfamily. Relaxin-2 is synthesized as a 185 aa preprohormone that is proteolytically processed into a nonglycosylated, disulfide-linked, 53 aa mature heterodimer that contains a 29 aa B chain (aa 25‑53) and a 24 aa A chain (aa 161‑185). An alternate splice form of human Relaxin-2 is known that contains the B chain and an uncleaved 47 aa extension. Mature human Relaxin-2 heterodimer is 48%, 44% and 43% aa identical to rat, canine and porcine Relaxin-2, respectively.
