|Alternative Name||ROCK2 (ROCK2 Antibody Abstract)|
|Background||Progression of tumors to invasive and metastatic forms requires that tumor cells undergo dramatic morphological changes, a process regulated by Rho GTPases. Increased levels of RhoA or Rh °C, as well as the Rho effector proteins ROCK-1 or ROCK-2, were observed in various human carcinomas. In vivo studies have also shown that ROCK inhibition reduced the invasiveness of several tumor cell lines. It is suggested that Rho and ROCK signaling contribute to the morphological changes and metastatic behavior of some tumor cells. Thus, elevated Rho and ROCK expression is associated with tumorigenesis, particularly during the progression to invasive and metastatic phenotypes. Phosphorylation of certain residues in ROCK-2 may be critical for its kinase activity.Synonyms: KIAA0619, ROCK-2, Rho kinase 2, Rho-associated, Rho-associated protein kinase 2, coiled-coil-containing protein kinase 2, p164ROCK-2|

|Buffer||0.02 M Potassium Phosphate, 0.12 M Sodium Chloride, pH 7.2, 0.01 % (w/v) Sodium Azide, None|
|Precaution of Use||WARNING: Reagents contain sodium azide. Sodium azide is very toxic if ingested or inhaled. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, or clothing. Wear eye or face protection when handling. If skin or eye contact occurs, wash with copious amounts of water. If ingested or inhaled, contact a physician immediately. Sodium azide yields toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide-containing compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in lead or copper plumbing.|
|Handling Advice||Avoid repeated freezing and thawing.|
|Storage||4 °C/-20 °C|
|Storage Comment||Store the antibody undiluted at 2-8 °C for one month or (in aliquots) at-28 °C for longer.|
