Technical Data
Naked2 (Nkd2)
Naked1 (Nkd1) and Naked2 (Nkd2) are homologs of Drosophila Naked cuticle, a negative regulator of Wnt/Wingless signaling pathway which functions through a feedback mechanism (1,2). Both Drosophila and vertebrate Naked proteins contain a putative calcium-binding EF-hand motif; however, Drosophila Naked binds to zinc instead of calcium (3). Naked inhibits the canonical Wnt/ -catenin pathway by binding to Dishevelled proteins and directs Dishevelled activity towards the planar cell polarity pathway (2,4). Naked1 is a direct target of Wnt signaling and is overexpressed in some colon tumors due to constitutive activation of Wnt/ -catenin pathway (5). Naked2 is myristoylated and is required for sorting of TGF- to the basolateral plasma membrane of polarized epithelial cells (6).

Suitable for use in Western Blot and Immunoprecipitation. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 1:1000
IImmunoprecipitation: 1:50
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
For long-term storage, aliquot and 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.
