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.
Commercial Applications
The antibody can be used to detect and measure SphK2.

Competitive Advantages
The antibody works very well for western blotting.
