|Other Names||Elongation factor 1-alpha 1, EF-1-alpha-1, Elongation factor Tu, EF-Tu, Eukaryotic elongation factor 1 A-1, eEF1A-1, Leukocyte receptor cluster member 7, EEF1A1, EEF1A, EF1A, LENG7|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP6592a was selected from the N-term region of human EEF1A1. 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.|
|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.|
|Synonyms||EEF1A, EF1A, LENG7|
|Function||This protein promotes the GTP-dependent binding of aminoacyl-tRNA to the A-site of ribosomes during protein biosynthesis. With PARP1 and TXK, forms a complex that acts as a T helper 1 (Th1) cell-specific transcription factor and binds the promoter of IFN-gamma to directly regulate its transcription, and is thus involved importantly in Th1 cytokine production.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Nucleus, nucleolus. Note=Colocalizes with DLC1 at actin-rich regions in the cell periphery. Translocates together with ZPR1 from the cytoplasm to the nucleus and nucleolus after treatment with mitogens|
|Tissue Location||Brain, placenta, lung, liver, kidney, pancreas but barely detectable in heart and skeletal muscle|

EEF1A1 is an isoform of the alpha subunit of the elongation factor-1 complex, which is responsible for the enzymatic delivery of aminoacyl tRNAs to the ribosome. This isoform (alpha 1) is expressed in brain, placenta, lung, liver, kidney, and pancreas, and the other isoform (alpha 2) is expressed in brain, heart and skeletal muscle. This isoform is identified as an autoantigen in 66% of patients with Felty syndrome.
