Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot.
Applications Key: W=Western Blotting, IP=Immunoprecipitation
Specificity / Sensitivity
Fes Antibody detects endogenous levels of Fes proteins. This antibody does not cross-react with other proteins.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Thr421 of human Fes. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Fes/Fps and Fer are the only two members of a unique family of cytoplasmic protein tyrosine kinases (1,2). Fes and Fer contain a central Src homology-2 (SH2) domain and a carboxy-terminal tyrosine kinase catalytic domain. They are structurally distinguished from other members of cytoplasmic protein tyrosine kinase subfamilies by the presence of amino-terminal Fer/CIP4 homology and coiled-coil domains (3). Fes/Fps was originally identified as an oncogene from avian (Fps) and feline (Fes) retroviruses. Human c-Fes has been implicated in myeloid, vascular endothelial and neuronal cell differentiation. Mutations may activate the Fps kinase and thereby contribute to cancer (4). However, recent data strongly suggests that the c-Fes protein-tyrosine kinase is a tumor suppressor rather than a dominant oncogene in colorectal cancer (5).
