Gab2 (26B6) Rabbit mAb detects endogenous levels total of Gab2 protein. This antibody does not cross-react with Gab1 or Gab3.
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with recombinant human Gab2 protein.
The Grb-associated binder (Gab) family is a family of adaptor proteins recruited by a wide variety of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) such as EGFR, HGFR, insulin receptor, cytokine receptor and B cell antigen receptors. Upon stimulation of RTKs by their cognate ligand, Gab is recruited to the plasma membrane where it is phosphorylated and functions as a scaffold (1-4). Multiple tyrosine phosphorylation sites of Gab1 protein have been identified (5). Phosphorylation of Tyr472 regulates its binding to p85 PI3 kinase (6,7). Phosphorylation of Gab1 at Tyr307, Tyr373 and Tyr407 modulates its association to PLCγ (8). Phosphorylation of Tyr627 and Tyr659 is required for Gab1 binding to and activation of the protein tyrosine phosphatase SHP2 (6,9).
Gab2, a recently identified docking protein of Gab family, contains a pleckstrin homology domain and potential binding sites for SH2 and SH3 domain-containing proteins. Gab2 has been shown to support growth, differentiation and function in a number of hematopoietic cells (10).
