|Precautions||PRR5 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Subunit of mTORC2, which regulates cell growth and survival in response to hormonal signals. mTORC2 is activated by growth factors, but, in contrast to mTORC1, seems to be nutrient- insensitive. mTORC2 seems to function upstream of Rho GTPases to regulate the actin cytoskeleton, probably by activating one or more Rho-type guanine nucleotide exchange factors. mTORC2 promotes the serum-induced formation of stress-fibers or F-actin. mTORC2 plays a critical role in AKT1 'Ser-473' phosphorylation, which may facilitate the phosphorylation of the activation loop of AKT1 on 'Thr-308' by PDK1 which is a prerequisite for full activation. mTORC2 regulates the phosphorylation of SGK1 at 'Ser-422'. mTORC2 also modulates the phosphorylation of PRKCA on 'Ser-657'. PRR5 plays an important role in regulation of PDGFRB expression and in modulation of platelet-derived growth factor signaling. May act as a tumor suppressor in breast cancer.|
|Tissue Location||Most abundant in kidney and liver. Also highly expressed in brain, spleen, testis and placenta. Overexpressed in several colorectal tumors.|

PRR5 Antibody: Proline-rich protein 5 (PRR5), also known as Protor-1, is a 388 amino acid protein in Protor family, is thought to act as a tumor suppressor in breast and colorectal tumorigenesis. PRR5 is widely expressed and possesses two RICTOR interaction sites and a C-terminal Proline rich region. It promotes Rapamycin complex 2 (mTORC2) activity. There are four isoforms of PRR5 that are produced as a result of alternative splicing events and these isoforms play an important role in the modulation of platelet-derived growth factor signaling and in the regulation of PDGFR-beta expression.
