|Other Names||Suppression of tumorigenicity 5 protein, DENN domain-containing protein 2B, HeLa tumor suppression 1, ST5, DENND2B, HTS1|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP6249a was selected from the C-term region of human ST5 . A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) which may activate RAB9A and RAB9B. Promotes the exchange of GDP to GTP, converting inactive GDP-bound Rab proteins into their active GTP- bound form. May be involved in cytoskeletal organization and tumorogenicity. Isoform 1 seems to be involved in a signaling transduction pathway leading to activation of MAPK1/ERK2. Isoform 3 may block ERK2 activation stimulated by ABL1. Isoform 3 may alter cell morphology and cell growth.|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed with the exception of peripheral blood lymphocytes. Isoform 1 is expressed in several epithelial and fibroblast (including tumorigenic) but absent in lymphoid cell lines (at protein level). Isoform 3 is expressed in primary cell or weakly tumorigenic but not in tumorigenic cell lines (at protein level).|

ST5 was identified by its ability to suppress the tumorigenicity of Hela cells in nude mice. The protein contains a C-terminal region that shares similarity with the Rab 3 family of small GTP binding proteins. This protein preferentially binds to the SH3 domain of c-Abl kinase, and acts as a regulator of MAPK1/ERK2 kinase, which may contribute to its ability to reduce the tumorigenic phenotype in cells.
