Phospho-RIP2 (Ser176) Antibody #4364
|4364S||100 µl (10 western blots)||---||In Stock||---|
|4364||carrier free and custom formulation / quantity||email request|
Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot.
Applications Key: W=Western Blotting, IP=Immunoprecipitation
Species predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology: Rat.
Specificity / Sensitivity
Phospho-RIP2 (Ser176) Antibody detects endogenous levels of RIP2 only when phosphorylated at Ser176. Background bands of unknown origin and higher molecular weight are detected.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a phosphopeptide corresponding to residues surrounding Ser176 of human RIP2. Antibodies are purified by protein A and affinity chromatography.
Western blot analysis of extracts from PMA differentiated THP-1 cell lysates untreated or treated with LPS, using Phospho-RIP2 (Ser176) Antibody.
Western blot analysis of extracts and immunoprecipitates from PMA differentiated, LPS induced (10 minutes) THP-1 cell lysates (lane 1). Phospho-RIP2 (Ser176) was immunoprecipitated with Phospho-RIP2 (Ser176) Antibody (lane 2), and specificity was confirmed by immunprecipitation with rabbit IgG (lane 3). Immunoblot was performed using Phospho-RIP2 (Ser176) Antibody.
Receptor Interacting Protein 2 (RIP2) is a serine/threonine kinase with a carboxy-terminal caspase activation and recruitment domain (CARD). Association of RIP2 with the tumor necrosis factor receptor (TNFR) causes activation of NF-κB and induction of apoptosis (1-3). Expression of RIP2 is induced in macrophages upon exposure to bacterial cell wall components, such as LPS. RIP2-deficient mouse models demonstrate that this kinase integrates and transduces signals for both the innate and adaptive immune system (4,5).
Serine 176 is a regulatory autophosphorylation site and can be used to monitor the activation state of RIP2 (6).
