A total of three members of the TGFβ family, TGFβ1, TGFβ2 and TGFβ3, have been identified in mammals. Each is synthesized as a latent precursor that is subsequently cleaved forming the 112 amino acid growth factor which becomes active upon dimerization. TGFβs mediate their activity by high affinity binding to the type II receptor (TGFβ RII) transmembrane protein with a cytoplasmic serine-threonine kinase domain. For signaling growth inhibition and early gene responses the type II receptor requires both its kinase activity and association with a TGFβ-binding protein, designated the type I receptor. Two independent groups have recently described the cloning and sequence analysis of genes encoding TGFβ type I receptor proteins designated ALK-5 (TβR-1) and TSR-1, respectively.
Homo Sapiens (Human)
Synthetic peptide, corresponding to amino acids 100-150 of Human TGFβ RII.
Human, Mouse, Rat
Product: 1 mg/ml in Phosphate buffered saline (PBS) with 0.05% sodium azide, approx. pH 7.2.Specificity: TGF β Receptor II (I122) polyclonal antibody detects endogenous levels of TGF β Receptor II protein.
The antibody was affinity-purified from rabbit antiserum by affinity-chromatography using epitope-specific immunogen and the purity is > 95% (by SDS-PAGE).
