Kremen2
Description:
The Wnt family of secreted glycoproteins mediate cell-cell interaction during cell growth and differentiation in both embryos and adults. (1,2) Canonical Wnt signaling by way of the b-catenin pathway is transduced by two receptor families, frizzled proteins and lipoprotein-receptor-related proteins 5 and 6 (LRP5/6) which binds Wnts and transmit their signal by stabilizing intracellular b-catenin.(3-6) Kremen1 and Kremen2 are high-affinity Dkk1 receptors that functionally cooperate with the secreted protein Dickkopf1 (Dkk1) to block Wnt/b-catenin signaling.(7) Kremen1 and Kremen2 are components of a membrane complex modulating canonical Wnt signaling through LRP6 in vertebrates.(7) Dkk1 has been shown to inhibit Wnt signaling by binding to and antagonizing LRP5/6 (8-10).

Applications:
Suitable for use in Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 0.1-2ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage, store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
