Tool Details

  • Tool name: Anti-p-RAX/PACT [HL1921]
  • Alternate names: RAX/PACT; PRKRA
  • Tool type: Antibodies
  • Tool sub-type: Primary antibody
  • Class: Monoclonal
  • Conjugate: Unconjugated
  • Reactivity: Human ; Rat ; Mouse
  • Host: Mouse
  • Application: ELISA ; WB ; IHC
  • Description: Rax (mouse protein) and PACT (human ortholog) are the only known activators of PKR (double-stranded RNA dependent kinase). Rax and PACT share 98% amino acid sequence homology and contain three conserved dsRNA binding motifs. Phosphorylation of Serine 18 of RAX is required for PKR activation, which is known to be involved in the host anti-viral response, and can act as a signaling mediator by cytokines, growth factors and even tumor supressors.
  • Immunogen: Synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 13-25, including phosphorylated Serine 18, of mouse PACT protein
  • Isotype: IgG1
  • Research area: Cell Signaling & Signal Transduction

  • For Research Use Only

Target Details

  • Target: Phosphorylated interferon-inducible double strane RNA-dependent protein kinease/Protein activator of the interferon-induced protein kinase (RAX/PACT)
  • Target background: Rax (mouse protein) and PACT (human ortholog) are the only known activators of PKR (double-stranded RNA dependent kinase). Rax and PACT share 98% amino acid sequence homology and contain three conserved dsRNA binding motifs. Phosphorylation of Serine 18 of RAX is required for PKR activation, which is known to be involved in the host anti-viral response, and can act as a signaling mediator by cytokines, growth factors and even tumor supressors.
