PA1-1962 detects proteasome 20S subunit alpha 5 from human, rat, mouse and hamster cell lysates.
PA1-1962 has been successfully used in Western blot and immunofluorescence procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects a 26.5 kDa protein representing proteasome 20S subunit alpha 5 from human, rat, mouse, and hamster cell extracts.
PA1-1962 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues C A(120) L Q F G E E D A D P G A M(133) of human proteasome 20S subunit alpha 5. PA1-1962 immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-210) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
The proteasome is a multicatalytic proteinase complex with a highly ordered ring-shaped 20S core structure. The core structure is composed of 4 rings of 28 non-identical subunits; 2 rings are composed of 7 alpha subunits and 2 rings are composed of 7 beta subunits. Proteasomes are distributed throughout eukaryotic cells at a high concentration and cleave peptides in an ATP/ubiquitin-dependent process in a non-lysosomal pathway. An essential function of a modified proteasome, the immunoproteasome, is the processing of class I MHC peptides. This gene encodes a member of the peptidase T1A family, that is a 20S core alpha subunit.
