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: 55 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionAdapter protein which regulates several signal transduction cascades by linking activated receptors to downstream signaling components. May play a role in angiogenesis by regulating FGFR1, VEGFR2 and PDGFR signaling. May also play a role in T-cell antigen receptor/TCR signaling, interleukin-2 signaling, apoptosis and neuronal cells differentiation by mediating basic-FGF and NGF-induced signaling cascades. May also regulate IRS1 and IRS2 signaling in insulin-producing cells.
Tissue specificityWidely expressed.
Sequence similaritiesContains 1 SH2 domain.
DomainThe SH2 domain preferentially binds phosphopeptides with the consensus sequence Y-[TVI]-X-L and mediates interaction with PDGFRA, PDGFRB, FGRFR1, IL2RB, IL2RG, CD3Z and CRK/CrKII.
Post-translational modificationsPhosphorylated upon PDGFRA, PDGFRB, TCR, IL2 receptor, FGFR1 or VEGFR2 activation.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Cell membrane. Associates with membrane lipid rafts upon TCR stimulation.
