SF2/ASF Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total SF2/ASF protein.
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Ala171 of human SF2/ASF protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
SF2/ASF is a member of the Ser-Arg-rich (SR) protein family of highly conserved nuclear phosphoproteins involved in pre-mRNA splicing (1). Besides its role in nuclear pre-mRNA splicing, SF2/ASF has been shown to shuttle between the nucleus and cytoplasm, suggesting additional roles in mRNA transport and cytoplasmic events (2). SF2/ASF associates with translating ribosomes and stimulates translation (3). It also activates translation initiation by suppressing the activity of 4E-BP1, which is mediated by SF2/ASF association with mTOR and the phosphatase PP2A (4). More recent studies have demonstrated a role for SF2/ASF in microRNA processing (5).
