ATP-dependent RNA helicase DDX3X|DEAD box protein 3, X-chromosomal|DEAD box, X isoform|Helicase-like protein 2|HLP2|DDX3X|DBX|DDX3
DDX3 contains all of the motifs of the DEAD box family of RNA helicases, including the Asp/Glu/Ala/Asp sequence that gives the protein family its name and distinguishes it from other RNA helicases. DDX3 is localized to the X chromosome and has a highly conserved functional homolog (DBY) on the Y chromosome. DDX3 is thought to be involved in RNA splicing, RNA transport, and translation initiation. It is also involved in cell growth control and is deregulated in hepatitis virus associated hepatocellular carcinoma. Recent experiments suppressing DDX3 expression blocked HIV1 RNA export from the nucleus, suggesting that DDX3 functions as a shuttling protein that transports the HIV1 protein Rev and its cofactor CRM1 from the nucleus to the cytoplasm.
Homo Sapiens (Human)
Synthetic peptide, corresponding to amino acids 291-340 of Human DDX3.
Human, Mouse, Rat
Product: 1 mg/ml in Phosphate buffered saline (PBS) with 0.05% sodium azide, approx. pH 7.2.Specificity: DDX3 (L318) polyclonal antibody detects endogenous levels of DDX3 protein.
The antibody was affinity-purified from rabbit antiserum by affinity-chromatography using epitope-specific immunogen and the purity is > 95% (by SDS-PAGE).
