Src is a protein tyrosine kinase known to regulate cellular adhesion. Composed of three major domains; SH2, SH3 and a kinase catalytic domain, Src can be switched from an inactive to an active state though control of its phosphorylation state or through protein-protein interaction. Phosphorylation of Y529 by Csk and Chk inactivates Src, while dephosphorylation of Y529 will modify its conformation to an open active state. Mutation of Y529 leads to Scr overactivity. Several cancers including colon and breast cancer have been associated with an increase of Src activity.
Suitable for use in Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
