Our C-Raf (N-terminal region) primary antibody from PhosphoSolutions is mouse monoclonal. It detects human, mouse, and rat C-Raf (N-terminal region) and is Protein G purified. It is great for use in WB.
Western blot of human A431 (lane 1) and Jurkat (lane 2) cells probed with mouse monoclonal anti-C-Raf (N-terminal) antibody at 1:500.
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
Protein G Purified
Clone (M208) was generated from a sequence corresponding to amino acids in the N-terminal region of human C-Raf. This C-Raf sequence has high homology to rat and mouse C-Raf.
Human, Mouse, Rat
