|Calculated MW||121170 Da|
|Antigen Region||1056-1087 aa|
|Other Names||2'-5'-oligoadenylate synthase 3, (2-5')oligo(A) synthase 3, 2-5A synthase 3, p100 OAS, p100OAS, OAS3|
|Target/Specificity||This OAS3 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 1056-1087 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human OAS3.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||OAS3 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Interferon-induced, dsRNA-activated antiviral enzyme which plays a critical role in cellular innate antiviral response. In addition, it may also play a role in other cellular processes such as apoptosis, cell growth, differentiation and gene regulation. Synthesizes preferentially dimers of 2'-5'- oligoadenylates (2-5A) from ATP which then bind to the inactive monomeric form of ribonuclease L (RNase L) leading to its dimerization and subsequent activation. Activation of RNase L leads to degradation of cellular as well as viral RNA, resulting in the inhibition of protein synthesis, thus terminating viral replication. Can mediate the antiviral effect via the classical RNase L-dependent pathway or an alternative antiviral pathway independent of RNase L. Displays antiviral activity against Chikungunya virus (CHIKV), Dengue virus, Sindbis virus (SINV) and Semliki forest virus (SFV).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus.|
|Tissue Location||Present at high level in placenta trophoblast.|

OAS3 is an interferon inducible protein that belongs to the 2-5A synthetase family, may play a role in mediating resistance to virus infection, control of cell growth, differentiation, and apoptosis. OAS3 synthesizes preferentially dimeric 2',5'-oligoadenylate molecules. GTP can be an alternative substrate. OAS3 binds double-stranded RNA and polymerizes ATP into PPP(A2'P5'A)N oligomers, which activate the latent RNase L that, when activated, cleaves single-stranded RNAs. The protein is present at high level in placenta trophoblast.
