|Protein Name||Disintegrin and metalloproteinase domain-containing protein 2|
|Molecular Weight||82457 MW|
|Protein Function||Sperm surface membrane protein that may be involved in sperm-egg plasma membrane adhesion and fusion during fertilization. Could have a direct role in sperm-zona binding or migration of sperm from the uterus into the oviduct. Interactions with egg membrane could be mediated via binding between its disintegrin-like domain to one or more integrins receptors on the egg. This is a non catalytic metalloprotease-like protein.|
|Tissue Specificity||Expressed specifically in spermatogenic cells in the seminiferous cells. Not detected in fetal tissues.|
|Sequence Similarities||Contains 1 disintegrin domain.|
|Subcellular Localization||Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein.|
|Alternative Names||Disintegrin and metalloproteinase domain-containing protein 2;ADAM 2;Cancer/testis antigen 15;CT15;Fertilin subunit beta;PH-30;PH30;PH30-beta;ADAM2;FTNB;|

WB: SMMC Cell Lysate
1. Post-translational modification:phosphorylation, methylation, glycosylation etc. These modifications prevent SDS molecules from binding to the target protein and thus make the band size appear larger than expected
2. Post-translational cleavage: this can cause smaller bands and or multiple bands
3. Alternative splicing: the same gene can have alternative splicing patterns generating different size proteins, all with reactivities to the antibody.
4. Amino Acid R chain charge: SDS binds to positive charges. The different size and charge of the Amino Acid side chains can affect the amount of SDS binding and thus affect the observed band size.
5. Multimers: Multimers are usually broken up in reducing conditions. However if the interactions between the multimers are strong, the band may appear higher.,
