TARBP2 Antibody (N-term) Blocking peptide

Synthetic peptide

Product Information
Primary Accession Q15633
Clone Names 100430349
Peptide ID 100430349
Additional Information
Gene ID 6895
Other Names RISC-loading complex subunit TARBP2 {ECO:0000255|HAMAP-Rule:MF_03034}, TAR RNA-binding protein 2, Trans-activation-responsive RNA-binding protein, TARBP2 {ECO:0000255|HAMAP-Rule:MF_03034}, TRBP
Target/Specificity The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP14108a was selected from the N-term region of TARBP2. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.
Format Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.
StorageMaintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.
PrecautionsThis product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
Protein Information
Name TARBP2 {ECO:0000255|HAMAP-Rule:MF_03034}
Synonyms TRBP
Function Required for formation of the RNA induced silencing complex (RISC). Component of the RISC loading complex (RLC), also known as the micro-RNA (miRNA) loading complex (miRLC), which is composed of DICER1, AGO2 and TARBP2. Within the RLC/miRLC, DICER1 and TARBP2 are required to process precursor miRNAs (pre-miRNAs) to mature miRNAs and then load them onto AGO2. AGO2 bound to the mature miRNA constitutes the minimal RISC and may subsequently dissociate from DICER1 and TARBP2. May also play a role in the production of short interfering RNAs (siRNAs) from double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) by DICER1. Binds to the HIV-1 TAR RNA which is located in the long terminal repeat (LTR) of HIV-1, and stimulates translation of TAR-containing RNAs. This is achieved in part at least by binding to and inhibiting EIF2AK2/PKR, thereby reducing phosphorylation and inhibition of EIF2S1/eIF-2-alpha. May also promote translation of TAR-containing RNAs independently of EIF2AK2/PKR.
Cellular Location Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm, perinuclear region. Nucleus

HIV-1, the causative agent of acquired immunodeficiencysyndrome (AIDS), contains an RNA genome that produces achromosomally integrated DNA during the replicative cycle.Activation of HIV-1 gene expression by the transactivator Tat isdependent on an RNA regulatory element (TAR) located downstream ofthe transcription initiation site. The protein encoded by this genebinds between the bulge and the loop of the HIV-1 TAR RNAregulatory element and activates HIV-1 gene expression in synergywith the viral Tat protein. Alternative splicing results inmultiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. This genealso has a pseudogene.
