General description

Adenosine deaminase acting on RNA type 2 (ADAR2), also known as adenosine deaminase, RNA specific B1 (ADARB1), is encoded by the gene mapped to human chromosome 21q22.3. ADARB1 is characterized with two double-stranded RNA-binding domains and a deaminase domain involved in editing action.
Monoclonal Anti-ADAR2 (mouse IgG2a isotype) is derived from the hybridoma ADAR2-15 produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from BALB/c mice immunized with a synthetic peptide corresponding to a fragment of human ADAR2, conjugated to KLH. Adenosine deaminase acting on RNA type 2 is expressed mainly in nucleus.


Monoclonal Anti-ADAR2 recognizes human ADAR2


Monoclonal Anti-ADAR2 antibody produced in mouse may be used in several immunochemical techniques including immunoblotting.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Adenosine deaminase acting on RNA type 2 (ADAR2) enzyme plays a vital role in editing pre-mRNA of glutamate receptor B subunit. Combined effect of ADAR2 and HTR2C (5-hydroxytryptamine receptor 2C) variants contribute to the suicide attempt (SA) vulnerability in psychiatric patients. ADAR2 is a candidate gene for neurological diseases, such as bipolar affective disorder and epilepsy. Decrease in the activity of ADAR2 enzyme results in α-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic acid (AMPA) receptor-mediated death of motor neurons in mice. ADAR2 enzyme is expressed consistently in carcinomas and sarcomas and it is upregulated in lymphomas and seminomas when compared to normal tissues.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01M phosphate buffered saline pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide and horse immunoglobulins

Storage and Stability

Store at −20 °C. For continuous use, store at 2–8 °C for up to one month. For extended storage, freeze at −20 °C in working aliquots. Repeated freezing and thawing, or storage in “frost-free” freezers, is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify the solution by centrifugation before use. Working dilution samples should be discarded if not used within 12 hours.
