The antigen is a phosphopeptide corresponding to amino acid residues surrounding the phospho-Ser358 of human eEF1A2.
The antibody is prepared from pooled rabbit serum by affinity purification via sequential chromatography on phospho- and dephospho-peptide affinity columns.
Biological Significance: ExpandCollapse
Eukaryotic Elongation Factor eEF1A exists in two variant forms, eEF1A1 and eEF1A2. While eEF1A1 is almost ubiquitously expressed in humans, eEF1A2 is predominantly found in heart, brain, and skeletal muscle (Knudsen et al., 1993). Expression of eEF1A2 may have a role in ovarian cancer, as its expression is drastically increased in human ovarian tumors (Anand et al., 2002). Due to differences in structural models between the two isoforms, eEF1A1 and eEF1A2 likely have variant-specific phosphorylation sites (Soares et al., 2009). Ribosome-associated JNK phosphorylates Ser358 on eEF1A2 to promote degradation of newly synthesized polypeptides by the proteasome (Gandin et al., 2013).
