Western blot of GST fusion protein containing human C-Raf. The blot was probed with polyclonal anti-C-Raf (C-terminus) antibody in the presence (lanes 2-4) or absence (lane 1) of C-Raf (C-terminus) blocking peptide (lane 2), C-Raf (Ser-471) peptide (lane 3), or unrelated peptide (lane 4).

Bulk Order Anti-C-Raf (C-terminus) Antibody
The Ras-Raf-MAP kinase signaling pathway is involved in control of cell proliferation and differentiation. The Raf kinase family includes A-Raf, B-Raf, and C-Raf. Each family member has three highly conserved regions (CR1-3). The N-terminal CR1 contains the Ras-GTP-binding domain. The CR2 contains a negative regulatory serine residue (C-Raf (S259)/B-Raf(S365)) that may bind 14-3-3 proteins. The CR3 is the catalytic domain that contains phosphorylation sites for Raf-regulating enzymes within two segments, the N-region and the activation segment. Activation of C-Raf involves phosphorylation at many sites including Ser-338, Tyr-341, and multiple catalytic domain sites. EGF receptor activation leads to phosphorylation of Ser-471, which is critical for C-Raf kinase activity and is required for interaction with MEK. In B-Raf, the corresponding conserved site is Ser-578, and mutation of this residue to alanine produces an inactivate kinase. Thus, this Raf phosphorylation site may be critical for kinase activity and may be important for MEK binding and activation
Antigen Affinity Purified
C-Raf synthetic peptide (coupled to KLH) corresponds to amino acids from the C-terminus of human C-Raf. This sequence is conserved in C-Rafs from many species, and is not found in A-Raf or B-Raf.
