Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot.
Applications Key: W=Western Blotting
Species predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology: Rat, Monkey, Bovine, Dog.
Specificity / Sensitivity
M-RIP Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total M-RIP protein.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Pro62 of human M-RIP protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Myosin phosphatase-rho interacting protein (M-RIP), also known as p116RIP, RIP3, and MPRIP, localizes to actin-myosin filaments regulating cytoskeletal dynamics (1-3). M-RIP contains amino-terminal pleckstrin homology domains, carboxyl-terminal coiled-coil domains, and was originally identified to associate with the myosin phosphatase complex. M-RIP binds to MBS/MYRT, the myosin binding subunit of myosin phosphatase, as well as RhoA (1-3). Phosphorylation of MYRT by Rho-associated kinase (ROCK) inhibits myosin phosphatase activity, resulting in increased levels of phosphorylation on myosin light chain, and enhanced contractactility (4,5). M-RIP may function as a scaffolding protein for the complex between the myosin phosphatase complex, Rho/ROCK, and actin (2,6). Silencing of M-RIP results in disassembly of the complex, increased phosphorylation of myosin light chain, and changes to cytoskeletal dynamics (7,8).
