The Robo family of repulsive guidance receptors (Robo1-4) have important roles in controlling axon guidance and cell migration. These receptors are members of the immunoglobulin (Ig) superfamily and consist of an ectodomain with five Ig domains and three fibronectin type III repeats, a single transmembrane domain, and a long cytoplasmic tail that contains four blocks of conserved cytoplasmic sequences. In Drosophila, mutations in Robo, and its midline-expressed ligand Slit, result in too many axons crossing and staying at the midline. Several proteins that regulate the actin cytoskeleton, including cAbl, Ena, and Rho-family GTPases, contribute to the Robo signaling pathway. cAbl phosphorylates Robo1 at Tyr-1073, and this may inhibit Robo activity, while Slit-Robo signaling activates both Rac and Rho, and inactivates Cdc42. Thus, Robo guidance receptors control axon outgrowth and cell migration through activation of cell signaling pathways that regulate cytoskeletal dynamics.

Western blot analysis of C2C12 and SYF mouse cell lines. The blots were probed with anti-Robo2 (C-terminal region) in the absence (-) or presence (+) of Robo2 (C-terminal region) blocking peptide (RX2865).

Robo2 synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids in the C-terminal region of human Robo2. This sequence has significant homology to the same region in rat and mouse Robo2, and has low homology to other Robo family members.

This antibody was affinity purified using Robo2 (C-terminal region) peptide. The purified antibody detects a 175 kDa* band corresponding to Robo2 in Western blots of mouse C2C12 and SYF cells.

*All molecular weights (MW) are confirmed by comparison to Bio-Rad Rainbow Markers and to western blot mobilities of known proteins with similar MW.
