Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration.
WB Use a concentration of 0.1 - 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 165 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 132 kDa).
IP Use a concentration of 2 - 5 µg/ml.
Indirect ELISA Use a concentration of 0.01 - 0.1 µg/ml.


  • FunctionMay mediate the control of various cellular processes by insulin. When phosphorylated by the insulin receptor binds specifically to various cellular proteins containing SH2 domains such as phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase p85 subunit or GRB2. Activates phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase when bound to the regulatory p85 subunit.
  • Involvement in diseasePolymorphisms in IRS1 may be involved in the etiology of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) [MIM:125853].
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 IRS-type PTB domain.
    Contains 1 PH domain.
  • Post-translational
    Serine phosphorylation of IRS1 is a mechanism for insulin resistance. Ser-312 phosphorylation inhibits insulin action through disruption of IRS1 interaction with the insulin receptor.
    Phosphorylation of Tyr-896 is required for GRB2-binding.
