RhoA (67B9) Rabbit mAb #2117
|W||H M R Mk B||Endogenous||21||Rabbit IgG|
Reactivity Key: H=Human M=Mouse R=Rat Mk=Monkey B=Bovine
Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot. Species enclosed in parentheses are predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology.
Specificity / Sensitivity
RhoA (67B9) Rabbit mAb recognizes endogenous levels of total RhoA protein. The antibody does not recognize the related proteins RhoB or RhoC.
Source / Purification
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with synthetic peptides corresponding to residues near the carboxy terminus of human RhoA.
Western blot analysis of extracts from various cell lines, using RhoA (67B9) Rabbit mAb.
Rho family small GTPases, including Rho, Rac and cdc42, act as molecular switches, regulating processes such as cell migration, adhesion, proliferation and differentiation. They are activated by guanine nucleotide exchange factors (GEFs), which catalyze the exchange of bound GDP for GTP, and inhibited by GTPase activating proteins (GAPs), which catalyze the hydrolysis of GTP to GDP. A third level of regulation is provided by the stoichiometric binding of Rho GDP dissociation inhibitor (RhoGDI) (1). RhoA, RhoB and RhoC are highly homologous, but appear to have divergent biological functions. Carboxy-terminal modifications and differences in subcellular localization allow these three proteins to respond to and act on distinct signaling molecules (2,3).
Functions of RhoA, the most highly studied of these three, include regulation of actomyosin contractility (4), cytokinesis (5), focal adhesion assembly (6) and cell polarity (7).
