Rabbit Antibody to Mouse Sphingosine kinase 2 (SphK2)

Two isoforms of sphingosine kinase, sphingosine kinase 1 (SphK1) and sphingosine kinase 2 (SphK2), convert sphingosine to sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) in mammalian cells. While the importance of SphK1 has been known for some time, information about SphK2 is still being revealed. Therefore, researchers at NIH have developed an antibody against mouse SphK2, which can be used to further understand the role of this enzyme.
