The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 49 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionRequired for the first step in the synthesis of diphthamide, a post-translational modification of histidine which occurs in translation elongation factor 2. When overexpressed, suppresses colony formation ability and growth rate of ovarian cancer cells. Acts also as a tumor suppressor in lung and breast cancers (By similarity). Plays a role in embryonic growth, organogenesis and postnatal survival.
Tissue specificityExpressed in heart, brain, placenta, lung, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney, pancreas, spleen, thymus, mammary gland, colon, small intestine, testis and ovary. Reduced expression in primary breast and ovarian tumors.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the DPH1/DPH2 family. DPH1 subfamily.
