Anti-IRAK2 Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody
The binding of interleukin-1 (IL-1) to its receptor IL-1RI initiates a signaling cascade that results in the activation of NF-κB. Recently protein kinases designated IRAKs (IL-1 receptor-associated kinases) have been identified and designated as IRAK-1, IRAK-2 and IRAK-M. IRAK-2 is a serine/threonine protein kinase. The primary amino acid sequence of IRAK-2 shares similarity with that of Pelle, a protein kinase that is essential for the activation of a NF-κB homolog in Drosophila. IRAK (IL-1 receptor kinase) and mediates NF-κB activation by members of IL-1 family including IL-1 and a novel cytokine IL-18. Disruption of IRAK expression by anti-sense oligonucleotides inhibits IL-1 and IL-18-induced activation of NF-κB and activator protein, AP-1. IRAK2, an IRAK type protein kinase, is a signal transducer for the immune response interleukin-1 receptor (IL-1R) signaling cascade. IRAK2 also has been associated with signaling cell death, potentially via the Fas-associated death domain protein/caspase-8 apoptotic pathway. Dominant negative forms of IRAK2 attenuate IL-1R-mediated NF-kappa B activation, suggesting that IRAK-2 may serve as a therapeutic target for inhibiting IL-1-induced inflammation.
IRAK2 antibody can be used in ELISA, Western Blot, immunohistochemistry starting at 5 ?g/mL, and immunofluorescence starting at 10 ?g/mL.
