Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot.
Applications Key: W=Western Blotting
Species predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology: Monkey.
Specificity / Sensitivity
MTMR3 Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total MTMR3 protein. This antibody also cross-reacts with a protein of unknown origin at 48 kDa.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Pro600 of human MTMR3 protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Myotubularin-related proteins are a family of phosphatases with emerging roles in cellular signaling and membrane trafficking (1,2). MTMR3 (Myotubularin-related protein 3), also known as FYVE-DSP1, contains an amino terminal pleckstrin homology (PH) domain and a carboxyl terminal FYVE domain. MTMR3 was first reported as a dual-specific phosphatase, having phosphatase activity toward phosphorylated serine, threonine, and tyrosine residues (3). Subsequent research studies reported that MTMR3 has phosphatase activity toward phosphoinositides, including phosphatadylinositol-3-phosphate (PI3P) and phosphatidylinositol 3,5-bisphosphate (PI(3,5)P2) (4). Accumulation of PI3P by the class III phosphoinositide 3-kinase Vps34 is a key element in autophagosome formation (5). Inhibition of PI3P by MTMR3 can play an important role in suppressing autophagsome formation (6).
