While ELISA data show strong reactivity with the acetylated form of the immunizing peptide and minimal reactivity with the non-acetylated form, to date western blotting data are not definitive for acetyl K294 specificity as blots show equivalent staining of lysates from cells either treated or untreated with Trichostatin A (an HDAC inhibitor). A BLAST analysis was used to suggest cross-reactivity with Hsp90 from human, mouse, rat, monkey, chicken and Drosophila based on 100% homology with the immunizing sequence. Reactivity of this antibody with Hsp90 from other species is unknown.
Heat shock proteins (HSP) are proteins that are expressed in response to various biological stress, including heat. HSP90 is a 90 kDa protein that is induced under stress conditions, but is also one of the most abundant cellular proteins found under non-stress conditions. HSP90 has been found to be associated with a number of other intracellular proteins, including steroid receptors, actin, tubulin, and some kinases. It has been suggested that HSP90 is necessary to maintain structural integrity of at least some steroid receptors to allow for ligand binding during receptor activation.
