USP2 in Mouse Kidney.
USP2 was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse kidney using Goat Anti-Mouse USP2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5804) at 3 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Goat IgG VisUCyte™ HRP Polymer Antibody (Catalog # VC004). Tissue was stained using DAB (brown) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm in glandular epithelial cells.

Detection of Mouse USP2 by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of mouse liver tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Mouse USP2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5804) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF019). A specific band was detected for USP2 at approximately 70 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.

USP2 (Ubiquitin-specific-processing protease 2; also Ubiquitin carboxy-terminal hydrolase 2) is a cytosolic member of the peptidase C19 family of enzymes. It is widely expressed and serves to deubiquitinate select target substrates. USP2 effects are determined by its targets. In cells where it increases Mdm2, p53 is degraded and apoptosis is blocked. In cells where it increases Itch concentration, Flip activity is interrupted and apoptosis is promoted. USP2 is reported to form homo‑oligomers. There are at least two isoform variants. Each is approximately 70 kDa in size, with one showing a 266 aa, and another a 272 aa substitution for aa 1‑49. Over aa 47‑396, mouse USP2 shares 96% and 99% aa identity with human and rat USP2, respectively.
