Purified Mouse Anti-Human Cyclin D2
Down Arrow Up Arrow

BD Pharmingen™
Human (QC Testing)
Mouse IgG2a
Recombinant Human Cyclin D2
Western blot (Routinely Tested), Immunoprecipitation (Tested During Development)
35 kDa
0.5 mg/ml
Aqueous buffered solution containing ≤0.09% sodium azide.


Applications include western blotting (1-2 µg/ml) and immunoprecipitation (1-2 µg/one million cells). D-type cyclins are differentially expressed in distinct cell types, therefore cell types which have been documented to express high levels of a given D-type cyclin are suggested as positive controls for these applications. WI-38 human diploid fibroblasts (ATCC CCL 75) and U-118 MG human glioblastoma cells (ATCC HTB 15) are suggested as positive controls for detection of cyclin D1 and D3.  Primary human peripheral blood T lymphocytes stimulated with phytohemagglutin (PHA) and Raji human Burkitt lymphoma cells (ATCC CCL 86) are suggested as positive controls for detecting cyclin D2.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

Cyclins and cyclin-dependent kinases (cdks) are evolutionarily conserved proteins that are essential for cell-cycle control in eukaryotes. Cyclins (regulatory subunits) bind to cdks (catalytic subunits) to form complexes that regulate the progression of the cell cycle. The main cyclin-cdks complexes formed in vertebrate cells are cyclin D-cdk4 (G0/G1), cyclin E-cdk2 (G1/S), cyclin A-cdk2 (S) and cyclin B1-cdk1 (G2/M). These complexes are regulated by activating or inhibitory phosphorylation events, as well as by interactions with small proteins, e.g., p16 and p27, that bind to cyclins, cdks, and cyclin-cdk complexes. Specific substrates for cdk-cyclin complexes include nuclear lamins, histones, oncogenes (c-src, cabl, SV40 large T-Ag), tumor suppressor genes (retinoblastoma protein [Rb] and p53), nucleolin, RNA polymerase II and others. D-type cyclins are expressed mainly in G1 and play a role in regulating the passage of mammalian cells through the G1 phase of the cell cycle. The reduced molecular weights of D-type cyclins are as follows: cyclin D1 (36 kDa), cyclin D2 (35 kDa), and cyclin D3 (31 and 34 kDa [doublet]).  G132-43 recognizes human cyclin D2.  It does not cross-react with human cyclins D1 and D3. Recombinant, full-length human cyclin D2 produced in the Baculovirus expression system (BEVS) was used as immunogen.

Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
