Anti-Anopheles gambiae Aminopeptidase [AgAPN2] Antibody

This rabbit IgG polyclonal antibody was generated against a peptide corresponding to amino acids 228-843 of Anopheles gambiae Aminopeptidase and recognizes A. gambiae Aminopeptidase.


  • Reacts with A. gamiae Aminopeptidase
  • Useful in R&D involving Anopheles, for identification and validation of targets for insect control by - d-endotoxins, and other biochemical/biological methods
  • Several species of Anopheles are disease vectors (malaria, canine heartworm, filariasis, O’nyong’nyong)
  • Recommended for Western Blot, Immunofluorescence, Immunohistochemistry and ELISA applications

Aminopeptidase is an enzyme that catalyzes the breakdown of a peptide, removing the amino acyl residue at the amino end of the chain (that is, an N-exopeptidase); found in intestinal secretions. They are widely distributed throughout both animal and plant kingdoms and are found in many subcellular organelles, in cytoplasm, and as membrane components.
