Phospho-Tyrosine Mouse mAb (P-Tyr-100) is a high affinity antibody. ELISAs against a wide variety of phosphopeptides indicate that P-Tyr-100 binds phospho-Tyr in a manner largely independent of the surrounding amino acid sequence. 2D gel western blot analysis of pervanadate-treated cell extracts also shows that P-Tyr-100 interacts with a broad range of tyrosine-phosphorylated proteins. P-Tyr-100 does not cross-react with peptides containing phospho-Ser or phospho-Thr. (U.S. Patent No's.: 6,441,140; 6,982,318; 7,259,022; 7,344,714; U.S.S.N. 11,484,485; and all foreign equivalents.)
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with phospho-tyrosine containing peptides.
This Cell Signaling Technology antibody is conjugated to phycoerythrin (PE) and tested in-house for direct flow cytometry analysis in human cells. The antibody is expected to exhibit the same species cross-reactivity as the unconjugated Phospho-Tyrosine Mouse mAb (P-Tyr-100) #9411.
Tyrosine phosphorylation plays a key role in cellular signaling (1). Research studies have shown that in cancer, unregulated tyrosine kinase activity can drive malignancy and tumor formation by generating inappropriate proliferation and survival signals (2). Antibodies specific for phospho-tyrosine (3,4) have been invaluable reagents in these studies. The phospho-tyrosine monoclonal antibodies developed by Cell Signaling Technology are exceptionally sensitive tools for studying tyrosine phosphorylation and monitoring tyrosine kinase activity in high throughput drug discovery.
