  • Function
    Signaling adapter that couples activated growth factor receptors to signaling pathways. Participates in a signaling cascade initiated by activated KIT and KITLG/SCF. Isoform p46Shc and isoform p52Shc, once phosphorylated, couple activated receptor tyrosine kinases to Ras via the recruitment of the GRB2/SOS complex and are implicated in the cytoplasmic propagation of mitogenic signals. Isoform p46Shc and isoform p52Shc may thus function as initiators of the Ras signaling cascade in various non-neuronal systems. Isoform p66Shc does not mediate Ras activation, but is involved in signal transduction pathways that regulate the cellular response to oxidative stress and life span. Isoform p66Shc acts as a downstream target of the tumor suppressor p53 and is indispensable for the ability of stress-activated p53 to induce elevation of intracellular oxidants, cytochrome c release and apoptosis. The expression of isoform p66Shc has been correlated with life span (By similarity). Participates in signaling downstream of the angiopoietin receptor TEK/TIE2, and plays a role in the regulation of endothelial cell migration and sprouting angiogenesis.
  • Tissue specificity
    Widely expressed. Expressed in neural stem cells but absent in mature neurons.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 PID domain.
    Contains 1 SH2 domain.
  • Domain
    In response to a variety of growth factors, isoform p46Shc and isoform p52Shc bind to phosphorylated Trk receptors through their phosphotyrosine binding (PID) and/or SH2 domains. The PID and SH2 domains bind to specific phosphorylated tyrosine residues in the Asn-Pro-Xaa-Tyr(P) motif of the Trk receptors. Isoform p46Shc and isoform p52Shc are in turn phosphorylated on three tyrosine residues within the extended proline-rich domain. These phosphotyrosines act as docking site for GRB2 and thereby are involved in Ras activation.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated by activated epidermal growth factor receptor. Phosphorylated in response to FLT4 and KIT signaling. Isoform p46Shc and isoform p52Shc are phosphorylated on tyrosine residues of the Pro-rich domain. Isoform p66Shc is phosphorylated on Ser-36 by PRKCB upon treatment with insulin, hydrogen peroxide or irradiation with ultraviolet light (By similarity). Tyrosine phosphorylated in response to FLT3 signaling (By similarity). Tyrosine phosphorylated by activated PTK2B/PYK2 (By similarity). Tyrosine phosphorylated by ligand-activated ALK. Tyrosine phosphorylated by ligand-activated PDGFRB. Tyrosine phosphorylated by TEK/TIE2. May be tyrosine phosphorylated by activated PTK2/FAK1; tyrosine phosphorylation was seen in an astrocytoma biopsy, where PTK2/FAK1 kinase activity is high, but not in normal brain tissue. Isoform p52Shc dephosphorylation by PTPN2 may regulate interaction with GRB2.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm; Mitochondrion matrix. Localized to the mitochondria matrix. Targeting of isoform p46Shc to mitochondria is mediated by its first 32 amino acids, which behave as a bona fide mitochondrial targeting sequence. Isoform p52Shc and isoform p66Shc, that contain the same sequence but more internally located, display a different subcellular localization and Mitochondrion. In case of oxidative conditions, phosphorylation at 'Ser-36' of isoform p66Shc, leads to mitochondrial accumulation.

Thanks for notifying us regarding the lack of signal with ab54518. One important point of emphasis is to make sure you are treating your samples. Endogenous SHC phosphorylation at S36 is extremely low and may not even be detectable in certain samples. The following articles demonstrate this quite nicely: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=p66+SHC+S36 http://circres.ahajournals.org/content/104/5/660.full#F6 I hope that this is helpful!

Thank you for providing that extra information. It allows me to more fully understand what may be contributing to the problems observed.

May I ask, in the blot presented, what bands were derived from the abcam antibody and what were obtained with the other antibody? The band below the smeared band at ˜ 70 kDa, what size does this equate to and is this a loading control? What is loaded in each well (are some induced and some not)?

May I also ask, how was the gel prepared and run? Were they made in house or purchased precast?

Also, how was the gel run? For what time/voltage? And were the buffers used cooled?

With this information I will hopefully be able to provide a few suggestions which should help to improve the results observed so far.I look forward to receiving your reply.

Many thanks for your cooperation.

Thank you for contacting us.

I am sorry to hear you are experiencing difficulties with one of our products. We take product complaints very seriously, and investigate every product that we feel may not be performing correctly.

In order to understand the problem more fully could I please ask a few further questions:

1. The other anti-SHC antibody used, where was this from, manufacturer, catalogue number? Was the same secondary antibody used for both antibodies?

2. If not, what secondary antibody was used with ab54518(cataloguenumber) and had this secondary antibody been used successfully before?

3. Was the phosphorylation state induced in the fibroblast samples by treatment with EGF or similar?

Also, could you please reattach the image of the results obtained as this did not reach me.

If the product was purchased in the last six months and is being used according to our Abpromise, we would be happy to replace or refund the antibody.

I look forward to receiving your reply.

Thank you for contacting us.

I afraid we do not supply those antibodies in pure PBS. If you are planning toplace an order for more than 10 units of each reference, I can still ask the labs if there would be any possibility to have a production batch in pure PBS.

Otherwise, I would suggest to purify the antibodies using our antibody purification kits https://www.abcam.com/ab102783 (1 purification) or https://www.abcam.com/ab102784 (3 purifications).

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

Thank you for your email. For activated SHC (66 kDa isoform, phosphorylation on Ser36), we have only 1 antibody: ab54518. It has been tested in WB and with mouse. https://www.abcam.com/shc-phospho-s36-antibody-6e10-ab54518.html For non-activated SHC (66 kDa isoform), we have only antibody ab103134. https://www.abcam.com/SHC-antibody-ab103134.html Since the immunogen was selected from the N-terminal region (aa 72-101) which is missing in the 52 and 46 kDa isoforms, the antibody will recognize only the 66 kDa isoform. Thus, the antibody is specific to the 66 kDa isoform. However, if the protein is phosphorylated at Ser36, this antibody will detect the phospho-protein as well. The antibody would basically measure total SHC protein (activated AND unactivated SHC 66 kDa). Also, the antibody has not yet been tested in mouse, only in human and WB, IHC-P. The homology between human and mouse is only 73% for the immunogen sequence and thus, might work or might not work. It is difficult to predict. Ideally, you want to use an antibody raised against a region within aa 1-60 as the homology is much higher (close to 100%). Unfortunately, we do not carry such antibody. If you decide to try ab103134 in mouse, I'd be happy to offer you our testing discount. For details please below: For UNTESTED species and/or applications, we have established a testing discount program. Here is a brief description of how it works: The testing discount program is for customers who like to use an antibody/protein on an untested species/application. You would purchase the antibody at full price, test it and submit an Abreview with your data (positive or negative). On your next order you will receive a discount for ONE antibody at the full price (100%) of the antibody you have tested. The terms and conditions applicable to this offer can be found here: https://www.abcam.com/collaborationdiscount. I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
