Target

  • FunctionHydrolyzes the second messenger cAMP, which is a key regulator of many important physiological processes.
  • Tissue specificityIsoform 1 is widely expressed. Isoform 2 is abundant in liver, stomach, testis, thyroid and adrenal glands. It is also found in placenta, kidney, pancreas, ovary, uterus, skin, monocytes, mast cells, macrophages, as well as in bronchial smooth muscle. Isoform 6 is expressed at high levels in the heart and small intestine. It is also found in the brain, kidney, spleen, colon, salivary gland, ovary and peripheral blood lymphocytes. Isoform 7 is expressed predominantly in skeletal muscle and brain and at lower levels in the testis. Isoform 7 is expressed in the brain. Found in specific neuronal subpopulations in cortex, spinal cord and cerebellum (at protein level).
  • PathwayPurine metabolism; 3',5'-cyclic AMP degradation; AMP from 3',5'-cyclic AMP: step 1/1.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase family. PDE4 subfamily.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Phosphorylated at Ser-686 and Ser-688 when expressed in S.frugiperda cells. Isoform 2 and isoform 7 are activated by phosphorylation at Ser-119 and Ser-123 respectively by PKA.
    Proteolytically cleaved by caspase-3.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm > perinuclear region; Cytoplasm > perinuclear region. Cell projection > ruffle membrane; Cytoplasm. Membrane. Predominantly cytoplasmic and Membrane. Isoform 4 has propensity for association with membranes.

Thank you for your enquiry. 1) PDE4A antibody (ab14607) does not cross react to any known PDE4 subtype except all the PDE4A subtype variants including PDE4A1, A5, Ax, A8, it has little or no reactivity towards PDE4A10 and PDE4A11. We have tested fo...

The buffer contains mainly Tris/glycine buffer pH 7.4-7.8; cryo-protective agents, stabilizing proteins (BSA) and glycerol. There is also sodium azide as preservative. The exact composition of this buffer is proprietary.

I am sorry these products did not perform as stated on the datasheet and for the inconvenience this has caused. As requested, I have issued free of charge replacements for ab14611 and ab14613with the order number 1137676.

To check the status...

Thank you for contacting us.

I have been in contact with the lab about this product, the epitope that this product recognizes is not mapped, so we don't know if it would recognize all the isoforms of PDE4A.
I would also like to inform you...
