Product name Anti-Phospho-EF-2 (T56) antibody
Short Description Rabbit Polyclonal to Phospho-EF-2 (T56).
Description EF-2 is a protein encoded by the EEF2 gene which is approximately 95,3 kDa. EF-2 is localised to the cytoplasm and nucleus. It is involved in AMP-activated protein kinase signalling, viral mRNA translation, the innate immune system and the HIV life cycle. This protein falls under the GTP-binding translation elongation factor family. Its function is to catalyse the GTP dependent ribosomal translocation step during translation elongation. This involves the translocation of the nascent protein chain from the A-site to the P-site of the ribosome. EF-2 is expressed in the nervous system, liver, intestine, blood and lung. Mutations in the EEF2 gene may result in spinocerebellar ataxia and diphtheria. STJ91030 was affinity-purified from rabbit antiserum by affinity-chromatography using epitope-specific immunogen. This primary antibody specifically binds to endogenous EF-2 protein which only binds about T56 when T56 is phosphorylated.

Function Catalyzes the GTP-dependent ribosomal translocation step during translation elongation. During this step, the ribosome changes from the pre-translocational (PRE) to the post-translocational (POST) state as the newly formed A-site-bound peptidyl-tRNA and P-site-bound deacylated tRNA move to the P and E sites, respectively. Catalyzes the coordinated movement of the two tRNA molecules, the mRNA and conformational changes in the ribosome.
Post-translational Modifications Phosphorylation by EF-2 kinase completely inactivates EF-2; it requires prior phosphorylation by CDK2 at Ser-595 during mitotic prometaphase. Phosphorylation by CSK promotes SUMOylation, proteolytic cleavage, and nuclear translocation if the C-terminal fragment. ; Diphthamide is 2-[3-carboxyamido-3-(trimethyl-ammonio)propyl]histidine. Diphthamide can be ADP-ribosylated by diphtheria toxin and by Pseudomonas exotoxin A, thus arresting protein synthesis (By similarity). ; ISGylated. ; Proteolytically processed at two sites following phosphorylation by CSK. ; SUMOylated following phosphorylation by CSK, promotes proteolytic cleavage.
Cellular Localization Cytoplasm Nucleus Note=Phosphorylation by CSK promotes cleavage and SUMOylation-dependent nuclear translocation of the C-terminal cleavage product.
