WBP2 Antibody #11831
|W||H M R Mk||Endogenous||32||Rabbit|
Reactivity Key: H=Human M=Mouse R=Rat Mk=Monkey
Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot. Species enclosed in parentheses are predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology.
Specificity / Sensitivity
WBP2 Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total WBP2 protein.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Asn239 of human WBP2 protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
WW-domain binding protein 2 (WBP2) is an adaptor protein first identified in a screen for proteins that interact with YAP1 (1). WBP2 was subsequently shown to bind other WW domain-containing proteins, including TAZ and NEDD4-like ubiquitin-protein ligases (2-5). There is strong evidence for a conserved functional role for WBP2 in the Hippo kinase tumor suppressor pathway. WBP2 interaction is required for the oncogenic properties of TAZ in breast cancer cells (4) and the growth-promoting properties of the YAP homolog Yorkie in Drosophila (6). In vitro studies have also suggested that WBP2 may act as a transcriptional co-activator of both estrogen and progesterone receptors (7); this interaction was shown to be dependent upon tyrosine phosphorylation of WBP2 by c-Src and c-Yes kinases (8).
