This peptide corresponds to 17 amino acids near the amino terminus of human YPEL2.
PEP-1391 can be used as a blocking peptide with polyclonal antibody PA5-34348.
YPEL2 (yippee-like 2) belongs to a family of five yippee-like proteins, all of which localize to the centrosome or mitotic spindle and are widely expressed in both adult and fetal tissue. This localization plus the fact that the family of human YPEL proteins share a high degree of sequence homology across species suggests that these proteins may have a conserved function involved in cell division. YPEL2 might be an important factor during the development and malignant transformation of tissues, most notably pancreatic and breast tumors.
