pCS2-SENP2(L)Neo Plasmid

pCS2-SENP2(L)Neo plasmid is a vector encoding th Senp2 gene for SUMO-specific protease 2 and the neomycin gene.


  • Expresses the long isoform of SUMO-specific protease 2 (SENP2)
  • Contains a phosphoglycerine kinase promoter region to drive the expression of a neomycin resistance gene for the purpose of selection
  • The SENP2 protein is fused to a myc tag

pCS2-SENP2(L) is a plasmid containing cDNA which encodes the long isoform of myc tagged SENP2. The expression is driven by CMV promoter. SENP2 encodes SUMO-specific protease 2 which is found in three alternatively spliced forms exhibiting differential subcellular localizations. Genetic inactivation of Senp2 in mice reveals its requirement in development of trophoblast stem cell niches and lineages during development of the placenta. The deletion of SENP2 in the neural progenitors results in neural degeneration mediated through modulation of Drp1-dependent mitochondrial morphogenesis.
