Detection of Human TOP2A by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line, Jurkat human acute T cell leukemia cell line, and K562 human chronic myelogenous leukemia cell line. PVDF Membrane was probed with 0.5 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human TOP2A Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6540) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for TOP2A at approximately 170 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
TOP2A in HeLa Human Cell Line. TOP2A was detected in immersion fixed HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line using Mouse Anti-Human TOP2A Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6540) at 10 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 cytoplasm and nuclei. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.

DNA topoisomerase 2-alpha (TOP2A; also DNA topoisomerase II, alpha isozyme) is a 170 kDa member of the type II topoisomerase family. Human TOP2A is 1531 amino acids (aa) in length, and splicing variants produce three additional isoforms which have substitutions following Lys321, Gln355, or Ala401. TOP2A contains a histidine kinase-like ATPases domain (aa 80-193), a TopoIIA Trans ScTopoIIA domain (aa 265-417), a TOPRIM TopoIIA: topoisomerase-primase domain (aa 455-575), a DNA Topoisomerase IV domain (aa 697-1169), and a NES (aa 1018-1028). There are multiple potential Ser/Thr phosphorylation sites. Human TOP2A shares 89% aa sequence identity with mouse TOP2A.
