Anti-Rab5 Polyclonal Antibody
Catalog No.: 56415
Size: 100ug peptide affinity purified antibody in PBS, pH 7.4.
Rab5 is a member of the Rab family, Ras superfamily, of small guanosine triphosphatases (GTPases) and is expressed in all human tissues. Rab GTPases are regulators of membrane trafficking in eukaryotic cells. Their regulatory capacity depends on their ability to cycle between the GDP-bound inactive and GTP-bound active states. Activation of a Rab protein is coupled to its association with intracellular membranes, allowing it to recruit downstream effector proteins to the cytoplasmic surface of a subcellular compartment. Through these proteins, Rab GTPases regulate vesicle formation, acitn- and tubulin-dependent vesicle movement and membrane fusion. Rabaptin-5 and EEA1 are among the proteins recruited by active Rab5.
Host Species: Rabbit
