Western blot of human K562 cells stimulated with pervanadate (1 mM) for 30 min. (lanes 1-6). The blot was treated with akaline phosphatase to dephosphorylate Crk (lanes 2, 4 & 6), then the blot was probed with rabbit polyclonals CrkL (C-terminus) CP3081 (lanes 1 & 2), Crk (Tyr-251) phospho-specific CP3091 (lanes 3 & 4), and mouse monoclonal anti-Crk II (C-terminal region) (lanes 5 & 6).

Crk II (Tyr-251)
The Crk family of adaptor proteins (Crk I, Crk II and CrkL) are Src Homology 2 (SH2) and Src Homology 3 (SH3) domain-containing proteins that form protein complexes important for transmiting signals downstream of tyrosine kinases. Both Crk II and CrkL are composed of a single SH2 domain, followed by two tandem SH3 domains. Crk II is also alternatively spliced to a minor product, Crk I, which is structurally and functionally more similar to the v-Crk oncogene. Both Crk II and CrkL are ubiquitously expressed and their SH domains are highly homologous, however both are required for mouse development and have distinct non-overlapping phenotypes in knockout mice. Phosphorylation may be important for regulating Crk activity. Crk II Tyr-221 (CrkL Tyr-207) phosphorylation is a negative regulatory site, while Crk Tyr-251 phosphorylation in the SH3 domain is a positive regulatory site. EGF stimulation induces phosphorylation of Tyr-251, which increases binding of Crk to the SH2 domain of Abl, and promotes transactivation of Abl.
Antigen Affinity Purified
ICC, IHC, WB
Phospho-Crk (Tyr-251) synthetic peptide (coupled to KLH) corresponding to amino acid residues surrounding Tyr-251 in human Crk II. This peptide sequence is well conserved in mouse and rat Crk II, as well as in CrkL (Tyr-251). The site is not found in Crk I.

Storage at -20°C is recommended, as aliquots may be taken without freeze/thawing due to presence of 50% glycerol. Stable for at least 1 year at -20°C.
PBS + 1 mg/ml BSA, 0.05% NaN3 and 50% glycerol
The antibody detects a 38 and 40 kDa* proteins corresponding to the molecular mass of Crk II and CrkL on SDS-PAGE immunoblots of human K562 cells stimulated with pervanadate and A431 cells stimulated with EGF. This reactivity is not observed after akaline phosphatase treatment.
