Immunogen A BALB/c mouse was immunized with a recombinant form of 6X HIS tagged human LEFTY.
Clone 7C5G1H6H10
Isotype IgG2a
Specificity This protein A purified mouse monoclonal antibody reacts with a 30 kDa protein corresponding to human LEFTY. No reactivity occurs against 6X HIS tag. Significant sequence homology exists between the human and mouse forms of LEFTY. Cross reactivity is expected with mouse and rat forms of the protein. Reactivity with other sources has not been determined.
Purification Protein A chromatography.
Alternative Name LEFTY2
Background During vertebrate embryogenesis, a left-right axis is established. Secreted growth factors of the TGF-beta family, including gene products derived from nodal, lefty-1 and lefty-2, play crucial roles in establishing left-right asymmetries. TGF-beta (Transforming growth factor- beta) is a pleiotropic cytokine that regulates growth and differentiation of diverse types of cells. TGF-beta actions are directed by ligand-induced activation of TGF-beta receptors. Complexes formed move into the nucleus, where they act as components of a transcriptional complex. Lefty, a novel member of the TGF-beta superfamily, inhibits TGF- beta signaling. Lefty acts to inhibit phosphorylation of Smad2 following activation of the TGF-beta receptor. Lefty also inhibits events downstream from R-Smad phosphorylation. Lefty provides a repressed state of TGF-beta-responsive genes. The Lefty family is comprised of Lefty 1 and Lefty 2 in mouse, and Lefty A and Lefty B in humans. Members of the TGF-beta superfamily require processing for their activation. Cleavage is therefore an essential step for Lefty activation. Lefty is synthesized as a large inactive precursor (42 Kda) that must be endoproteolytically processed to release the bioactive polypeptide (28 kDa and 34 kDa forms). The 28kDa form induces MAPK activity.
