ROCK2 is extensively expressed in the brain and spinal cord, and its expression improves with age. The amazing biological effects induced by knocking down ROCK2 expression in adult female rats include attenuation of axonal degeneration, prevention of apoptosis, and stimulation of neurite outgrowth. ROCK2 inhibition reduced caspase-3 and calpain activity, enhanced autophagic flux, and reduced acute axonal degeneration outgrowth.

The recombinant ROCK2 antibody expression is induced in mammalian cells transfected with a recombinant plasma vector. The recombinant plasma vector was constructed by inserting the gene coding for the antibody against ROCK2 into the plasma. The recombinant ROCK2 antibody was purified from the cell culture medium using Affinity-chromatography. It can react with samples containing ROCK2 protein from Human, Mouse, Rat and has been validated for use in the ELISA, WB, IF.

Target Background

Protein kinase which is a key regulator of actin cytoskeleton and cell polarity. Involved in regulation of smooth muscle contraction, actin cytoskeleton organization, stress fiber and focal adhesion formation, neurite retraction, cell adhesion and motility via phosphorylation of ADD1, BRCA2, CNN1, EZR, DPYSL2, EP300, MSN, MYL9/MLC2, NPM1, RDX, PPP1R12A and VIM. Phosphorylates SORL1 and IRF4. Acts as a negative regulator of VEGF-induced angiogenic endothelial cell activation. Positively regulates the activation of p42/MAPK1-p44/MAPK3 and of p90RSK/RPS6KA1 during myogenic differentiation. Plays an important role in the timely initiation of centrosome duplication. Inhibits keratinocyte terminal differentiation. May regulate closure of the eyelids and ventral body wall through organization of actomyosin bundles. Plays a critical role in the regulation of spine and synaptic properties in the hippocampus. Plays an important role in generating the circadian rhythm of the aortic myofilament Ca(2+) sensitivity and vascular contractility by modulating the myosin light chain phosphorylation.
