|Application ||WB, IHC, FC, ICC, E|
|Description||This gene encodes a member of the RSK (ribosomal S6 kinase) family of serine/threonine kinases. This kinase contains 2 non-identical kinase catalytic domains and phosphorylates various substrates, including members of the mitogen-activated kinase (MAPK) signalling pathway. The activity of this protein has been implicated in controlling cell growth and differentiation. Alternate transcriptional splice variants, encoding different isoforms, have been characterized.|
|Immunogen||Purified recombinant fragment of human RPS6KA2 (AA: 415-734) expressed in E. Coli.|
|Formulation||Purified antibody in PBS with 0.05% sodium azide.|
|Other Names||Ribosomal protein S6 kinase alpha-2, S6K-alpha-2, 184.108.40.206, 90 kDa ribosomal protein S6 kinase 2, p90-RSK 2, p90RSK2, MAP kinase-activated protein kinase 1c, MAPK-activated protein kinase 1c, MAPKAP kinase 1c, MAPKAPK-1c, Ribosomal S6 kinase 3, RSK-3, pp90RSK3, RPS6KA2, MAPKAPK1C, RSK3|
WB~~1/500 - 1/2000
IF~~1/200 - 1/1000
FC~~1/200 - 1/400
IHC~~1/200 - 1/1000
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||RPS6KA2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Serine/threonine-protein kinase that acts downstream of ERK (MAPK1/ERK2 and MAPK3/ERK1) signaling and mediates mitogenic and stress-induced activation of transcription factors, regulates translation, and mediates cellular proliferation, survival, and differentiation. May function as tumor suppressor in epithelial ovarian cancer cells.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Cytoplasm|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed with higher expression in lung, skeletal muscle, brain, uterus, ovary, thyroid and prostate|

Ribosomes, the organelles that catalyze protein synthesis, consist of a small 40S subunit and a large 60S subunit. Together these subunits are composed of 4 RNA species and approximately 80 structurally distinct proteins. This gene encodes a member of the L18AE family of ribosomal proteins that is a component of the 60S subunit. The encoded protein may play a role in viral replication by interacting with the hepatitis C virus internal ribosome entry site (IRES). This gene is co-transcribed with the U68 snoRNA, located within the third intron. As is typical for genes encoding ribosomal proteins, there are multiple processed pseudogenes of this gene dispersed throughout the genome. ; ;
