Rab6 Antibody #4879
|W||H M R Mk||Endogenous||24||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
Rab6 Antibody detects endogenous levels of total Rab6 protein.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Lys133 of human Rab6 protein. Antibodies are purified by peptide affinity chromatography.
Rab6 is a member of the Ras superfamily of small Rab GTPases implicated in endocytosis (1). The three distinct members of the Rab6 subfamily (Rab6A, Rab6A', and Rab6B) are structurally similar but likely exhibit non-overlapping functions (2,3). Rab6 localized to the Golgi (4) regulates retrograde transport of membrane-bound target proteins from the Golgi apparatus to the endoplasmic reticulum (5-7) or from the Golgi to the endosome during exocytotic transport (8). Rab6 interacts with microtubule motor proteins such as rabkinesin-6 (KIF20A) and dynein/dynactin complexes; Rab6-mediated transport requires a functionally intact microtubule system (9,10). Rab6 also regulates cytokinesis and cell cycle check point through interactions with Rab6 effector proteins, including the dynein/dynactin protein DCTN1 and the GTPase activating protein RABGAP1 (11,12).
