Peptide corresponding to amino acid residues from the N-terminal region of the rat 14-3-3 protein, conjugated to keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH).
Specific for the ~29k 14-3-3 beta/alpha protein. Immunolabeling of the 14-3-3 beta/alpha protein band is completely blocked by pre-adsorption of the antibody with the C-terminal peptide that was used to generate the antibody.
This antibody has been tested in Western blot on rat brain hippocampal lysate, detecting a band ~29 kDa.
28 kDa. Disclaimer note: The observed molecular weight of the protein may vary from the listed predicted molecular weight due to post translational modifications, post translation cleavages, relative charges, and other experimental factors.
It is anticipated that the antibody will react with bovine, canine, chicken, human, mouse, non-human primates, Xenopus and zebra fish based on the fact that these species have 100% homology with the amino acid sequence used as antigen.
Members of the 14-3-3 family of proteins are highly conserved proteins, localized in neurons, and are axonally transported to the nerve terminals. They are also present, at lower levels, in various other eukaryotic tissues. 14-3-3 proteins appear to play important roles in a variety of signal transduction pathways, including those involved in cell cycle regulation and cell survival. Because 14-3-3 proteins bind to specific phosphoserine-containing sequences they are likely to have an important role in signaling pathways mediated by serine/threonine protein kinases. Evidence indicates 14-3-3 is required for Raf 1 kinase activity and phosphorylation among many other functions. 14-3-3 proteins are a family of highly conserved proteins that appear to have multiple roles in cell signaling (Bridges and Moorhead, 2005). The proteins are abundantly expressed in the brain and have been detected in the cerebrospinal fluid of patients with different neurological disorders (Berg et al., 2003). 14-3-3 proteins bind protein ligands that are typically phosphorylated on serine or threonine residues and regulate the functions of these binding partners by a number of different mechanisms (Silhan et al., 2004; Dougherty and Morrison, 2004). The 14-3-3 proteins affect a diverse array of cellular processes including the cell cycle and transcription, signal transduction and intracellular trafficking.
