Perilipin 2/ Adipophilin/ ADRP/ PLIN2 is a ubiquitous component of lipid droplets. It has been found in milk fat globule membranes and on the surface of lipid droplets in various cultured cell lines; inducible by etomoxir.Enhanced expression of Perilipin 2/ Adipophilin/ ADRP/ PLIN2 is a useful marker for pathologies characterized by increased lipid droplet accumulation. Such diseases include atheroma, steatosis, obesity and certain cases of liposarcoma. It also seems to be a potent marker for atherosclerosis. ADRP can also be used to study virus entry via lipid droplets.Polypeptide reacting: Perilipin 2/ Adipophilin/ ADRP/ PLIN2, MW 48,100 (calculated from aa sequence data); apparent Mr 52,000 (after SDS-PAGE); pI 6.72Immunolocalization: Perilipin 2/ Adipophilin/ ADRP/ PLIN2 is positively detected in the glandular cells of lactating mammary gland (ductal cells are negative), zona fasciculata of the adrenal gland, Sertoli cells of the testis, and in fat-accumulating hepatocytes of alcoholic cirrhotic fatty liver; adipocytes are negative.Also positively stained are lipid-storing CD 68-positive macrophages.Tested cultured cell lines: PLC, MDCK Learn more about PROGEN Perilipin antibodies.
