Application Notes
This ADFP antibody can be used for Western blot and Immunofluorescence/Immunocytochemistry. In Western blot a band is observed at approx. 51 kDa. In ICC/IF, membrane staining was observed in HeLa cells. In IHC-P, staining was observed on the membrane of mouse liver cells Prior to immunostaining paraffin tissues, antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH 6.0) is recommended.

In Simple Western only 10 - 15 uL of the recommended dilution is used per data point. Separated by Size-Wes, Sally Sue/Peggy Sue.
Theoretical MW
51 kDa.
Disclaimer note: The observed molecular weight of the protein may vary from the listed predicted molecular weight due to post translational modifications, post translation cleavages, relative charges, and other experimental factors.

Perilipin-2/Plin-2, also known as adipose differentiation-related protein (ADFP), ADRP, and adipophilin, is a member of the perilipin family of lipid droplet (LD) proteins that functions in lipid accumulation, lipid storage, and LD formation (1,2). Perilipin-2 is ubiquitously expressed and is the major LD protein of the liver (1-3). Human perilipin-2 is 437 amino acids (aa) in length with a theoretical molecular weight of 48 kDa (1,4). Human and mouse perilipin-2 share 81.8% sequence identity. One defining structural feature of perilipin-2 and other LD-related proteins is formation of amphipathic alpha helices (1,3,5). The perilipin-2 protein contains a PAT (perilipin A, ADRP, TIP47) domain, a 11-mer repeat motif, and a 4-helix bundle (1,5). The PAT domain has a role in triglyceride (TG) stabilization, the 11-mer repeat motif functions in cytoplasmic LD binding, and the 4-helix bundle facilitates membrane binding (5). Unlike LDs coated with other perilipin family members (e.g., perilipin-1 and perilipin-5), LDs coated with perilipin-2 are more permissive to lipolysis and protective of lipids and TGs (1-3). Studies have revealed that perilipin-2 knockout (KO) in mice is associated with resistance to fatty liver disease and diet-induced obesity (1). On the other hand, overexpression of perilipin-2 causes increased lipid and TG accumulation, which is a feature of many metabolic, cardiovascular, and age-related diseases (2). Additional research has found higher levels of perilipin-2 is associated with certain cancers such as colorectal cancer and renal carcinomas, and it may be a useful biomarker for detection (2). Though more research is needed, it is possible that inhibition or blocking of perilipin-2 may be a key strategy to combatting several pathologies (2).

FAQs for Perilipin-2/ADFP Antibody (NB110-40877). (Showing 1 - 2 of 2 FAQs).

  1. I would appreciate if you are able to provide the exact amino acid sequence of the immunogens. The customer would like to check the percentage alignment with the chicken protein to determine which of the antiodies woudl be better to try in this species.
    • I am unable to provide you with this information however I can tell you that there is a 71% homology between the chicken protein and human protein. Our lab only recommends use if the homology is 85% or above.
  2. I went trought your product datasheet, but I didn't find any information about the dilution I have to use for the western blot and if it's in 5% milk-TBST or other blocking buffer. Could you please provide me those information?
    • For our product NB110-40877, we recommend a starting dilution of 2 ug/ml for western blot. Our recommended diluent buffer is 5% nonfat milk in TBST.
