|Calculated MW||131591 Da|
|Application & Usage||Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually|
|Other Names||IRS1 , HIRS-1|
|Formulation||100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA and 0.01% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||IRS-1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||May 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 (By similarity).|

IRS-1 (Insulin receptor substrate-1) is phosphorylated in response to stimulation of cells by insulin. Upon ligand-induced phosphorylation, IRS-1 immediately associates with a series of SH2 domain-containing signaling intermediates such as PI3-kinase, GRB2, Syp and Nck. The level of diversity in structure and function of the SH2-containing proteins which binds activated IRS-1 is important for responsiveness to insulin. IRS phosphorylation elicits the growth and metablic effects of insulin growth factors and insulin by allowing glucose uptake, glycogen synthesis and mitogenic activity. IRS-1 migrates between 170 and 185 kDa and is expressed in most cell types.
