Product Type Specific: Protein kinase pan-specific antibody

Antibody Code: NK116-4

Antibody Target Type: Pan-specific

Protein UniProt: P42345

Protein SigNET: P42345

Antibody Type: Polyclonal

Antibody Host Species: Rabbit

Antibody Immunogen Source: Human mTOR (FRAP) sequence peptide Cat. No.: PE-01ARD80

Antibody Immunogen Sequence: FNQAYGRDLMEAQEWC

Antibody Immunogen Description: Corresponds to amino acid residues F2070 to C2085

Production Method: The immunizing peptide was produced by solid phase synthesis on a multipep peptide synthesizer and purified by reverse-phase hplc chromatography. Purity was assessed by analytical hplc and the amino acid sequence confirmed by mass spectrometry analysis. This peptide was coupled to KLH prior to immunization into rabbits. New Zealand White rabbits were subcutaneously injected with KLH-coupled immunizing peptide every 4 weeks for 4 months. The sera from these animals was applied onto an agarose column to which the immunogen peptide was thio-linked. Antibody was eluted from the column with 0.1 M glycine, pH 2.5. Subsequently, the antibody solution was neutralized to pH 7.0 with saturated Tris.

Antibody Modification: Unconjugated. Contact KInexus if you are interest in having the antibody biotinylated or coupled with fluorescent dyes.

Scientific Background: mTOR (FRAP1) is a protein-serine/threonine kinase of the Atypical group and PIKK family. It mediates cell growth, metabolism, and survival. It regulates various cellular pathways such as insulin signalling, eIF4e and p70S6 kinase activation for protein synthesis, HIFa, VEGF, nutrient and hormone signals, ribosome biogenesis, regulation of cell cycle progression, angiogenesis, cell polarity and cytokeleton reorganization. Phosphorylation of S2448 and S2481 increases its phosphotransferase activity, and it is stimulated by RHEBm. Phosphorylation of T2446 inhibits phosphorylation of the S2448 activatory site. It is also negatively regulated by DEPDC6. Dysregulation in signalling that leads to constant activation of mTOR lead to uncontrolled proliferation and cell cycle progression and oncogensis. Increased invasiveness has also be shown do be associated with mTOR activity. While it features a wide range of mutations, this might reflect the very large size of the protein rather than its identification as a tumour suppressor protein. Cancer-related mutations for mTOR in human tumours point to a gain of function of the protein kinase, indicating that it might function as an oncoprotein (OP). The active form of the protein kinase normally acts to promote tumour cell proliferation. mTOR has been linked with Tuberous Sclerosis, Subependymal Giant Cell Astrocytoma (SEGA), Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM), Tuberous Sclerosis Complex, Plasmablastic Lymphoma (PBL), Ewing's tumours, and Kidney Angiomyolipoma.
