Gallery: S6 Ribosomal Protein (54D2) Mouse mAb (Biotinylated) #3944
S6 Ribosomal Protein (54D2) Mouse mAb (Biotinlyated) detects endogenous levels of total S6 ribosomal protein.
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a recombinant fusion protein corresponding to full-length human S6 ribosomal protein.
This Cell Signaling Technology (CST) antibody is conjugated to biotin under optimal conditions and tested in-house by Western Blot and flow cytometric analysis. The antibody is expected to exhibit the same species cross-reactivity as the unconjugated antibody (S6 Ribosomal Protein (54D2) Mouse mAb #2317).
One way that growth factors and mitogens effectively promote sustained cell growth and proliferation is by upregulating mRNA translation (1,2). Growth factors and mitogens induce the activation of p70 S6 kinase and the subsequent phosphorylation of the S6 ribosomal protein. Phosphorylation of S6 ribosomal protein correlates with an increase in translation of mRNA transcripts that contain an oligopyrimidine tract in their 5' untranslated regions (2). These particular mRNA transcripts (5'TOP) encode proteins involved in cell cycle progression, as well as ribosomal proteins and elongation factors necessary for translation (2,3). Important S6 ribosomal protein phosphorylation sites include several residues (Ser235, Ser236, Ser240, and Ser244) located within a small, carboxy-terminal region of the S6 protein (4,5).
