Phospho-Ser499 FMRP (Fragile X Mental Retardation Protein) Antibody
Affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody
|Predicted||Bovine, Chicken, Human, Mouse, Monkey, Xenopus, Zebrafish|
|Calculated MW||71 KDa|
|Other Names||Fragile X mental retardation protein 1 homolog, FMRP, Protein FMR-1, Fmr1|
|Target/Specificity||Synthetic phospho-peptide corresponding to amino acid residues surrounding Ser499 conjugated to KLH.|
|Format||Prepared from rabbit serum by affinity purification via sequential chromatography on phospho- and dephosphopeptide affinity columns.|

Fragile X Mental Retardation Protein (FMRP) is an RNA-binding protein that plays an essential role in cognitive brain function. Mutations in the FMR1 gene, which codes for FMRP, can result in fragile X syndrome, autism, as well as other cognitive deficits (Brown et al.,1998, Goodlin-Jones et al., 2004). Phosphorylation of the highly conserved Ser499 has been shown to trigger hierarchical phosphorylation of nearby serines and may play a role in suppressing target mRNA translation (Ceman et al., 2003, Narayanan et al. 2008).
