Specificity / Sensitivity
R-Ras Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total R-Ras protein.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues near the amino terminus of human R-Ras protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
R-Ras, a member of the small GTPase family, is homologous to H-, K- and N-Ras, but does not activate MAP kinase pathways and is only weakly oncogenic (1). Instead, R-Ras is engaged in integrin activation (2). The effector loop and the carboxy-terminal proline-rich and prenylation sites of R-Ras are critical for integrin activation (3,4). Phosphorylation by EphB2 receptor tyrosine kinase and Src at Tyr66 of R-Ras suppresses integrin activity (5,6).
