Phospho-Shc (Tyr239/240) Antibody #2434
|W||H M R||Endogenous||50, 55, 70||Rabbit|
Reactivity Key: H=Human M=Mouse R=Rat
Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot. Species enclosed in parentheses are predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology.
Specificity / Sensitivity
Phospho-Shc (Tyr239/240) Antibody detects Shc only when phosphorylated at tyrosine 239/240. The antibody may cross-react with activated EGF receptor protein.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic phosphopeptide corresponding to residues surrounding Tyr239/240 of human Shc. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Western blot analysis of extracts from HepG2 cells, untreated or EGF-treated (100 ng/ml) 18 hours of serum-starvation, and Jurkat cells, untreated or treated with anti-CD3 antibody (1 µg/ml for 10 minutes), using Phospho-Shc (Tyr239/240) Antibody (upper) or Shc antibody #2432 (lower).
Shc possesses SH2 and PTB domains and serves as a scaffold protein in signaling for a variety of receptor tyrosine kinases. Shc exists in p46, p52 and p66 isoforms, which are produced by using alternative translation initiation sites or a differentially spliced message (1-3). In response to extracellular signals, the SH2 and PTB domains of Shc interact with the activated receptors, leading to phosphorylation of Shc on three different tyrosine residues: Tyr239, Tyr240 and Tyr317 (4-6). GRB2/Sos binds to Shc phosphorylated at these sites, activating the Ras/Raf/MAPK pathway (4). Both Shc expression and its tyrosine phosphorylation play an essential and nonredundant role in thymic T cell development (7).
