TPX2 (targeting protein for Xklp2) is a microtubule-associated protein involved in targeting the motor protein Xklp2 to microtubules. Ran-GTP activates TPX2 for the chromatin-induced microbutule assembly during M phase. Aurora-A kinase associates with TPX2 at the spindle apparatus and may regulate TPX2 via phosphorylation during the spindle assembly. TPX2 appears to play a structural role in spindle formation. TPX2 activates Eg2 in a microtubule-dependent manner by stimulating the phosphorylation and kinase activity of Eg2. TPX2 is inactivated by binding to importin a, a nuclear import factor. Finally, the suppression of TPX2 with RNA interference causes defects in microtubule organization during mitosis.

100 µl purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blot, Immunoprecipitation
Western blotting (1:500 – 1:2000) and Immunoprecipitation. However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes the human TPX2. Reactivity to other species has not been tested.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
