The EEF2 eef2 (Catalog #MBS617270) is an Antibody produced from Rabbit and is intended for research purposes only. The product is available for immediate purchase. The eEF2, phosphorylated (Thr56) (Elongation Factor 2, Eukaryotic EF2) reacts with Chicken, Hamster, Human, Monkey, Mouse, Rat and may cross-react with other species as described in the data sheet. MyBioSource\'s eEF2 can be used in a range of immunoassay formats including, but not limited to, ELISA (EL/EIA), Western Blot (WB).
Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot.
Dilution: Western Blot: 1:1000; Incubate membrane with diluted antibody in 5% BSA, 1X TBS, 0.1% Tween-20 at 4 degree C with gentle shaking, overnight. Researchers should empirically determine the suitability of the EEF2 eef2 for an application not listed in the data sheet. Researchers commonly develop new applications and it is an integral, important part of the investigative research process.

The EEF2 eef2 product has the following accession number(s) (GI #4503483) (NCBI Accession #NP_001952.1) (Uniprot Accession #P13639). Researchers may be interested in using Bioinformatics databases such as those available at The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) website for more information about accession numbers and the proteins they represent. Even researchers unfamiliar with bioinformatics databases will find the NCBI databases to be quite user friendly and useful.

Eukaryotic elongation factor 2 (eEF2) catalyzes the translocation of peptidyl-tRNA from the A site to the P site on the ribosome. It has been shown that phosphorylation of eEF2 at threonine 56 by eEF2 kinase inhibits its activity (1-4). eEF2 kinase is normally dependent on Ca2+ ions and calmodulin (5,6). eEF2 kinase can also be activated by PKA in response to elevated cAMP levels (7-9), which are generally increased in stress- or starvation-related conditions. A variety of treatments known to raise intracellular Ca2+ or cAMP levels have been shown to result in increased phosphorylation of eEF2, and thus to inhibit peptide-chain elongation. The inactive phosphorylated eEF2 can be converted to its active nonphosphorylated form by a protein phosphatase, most likely a form of protein phosphatase-2A (PP-2A). Insulin, which activates protein synthesis in a wide range of cell types, induces rapid dephosphorylation of eEF2 through mTOR signaling and may involve modulation of the activity of the PP-2A or the eEF2 kinase or both (10).

EEF2 eef2

Immunogen: Synthetic phosphopeptide corresponding to residues surrounding Thr56 of human eEF2 (KLH). In general, we may offer more than one antibody to a given target to enable options for the researcher. Available antibodies recognizing EEF2 are readily searchable from our website. Different antibodies against the same target such as EEF2 may be optimized or tested for different applications and species. This enables researchers to select the option that may be best for their model system, to screen more than antibody to determine which one may be best for their model system, as well as to use more than one antibody to follow up on and validate their results.
