Recombinant production enables lot-to-lot consistency and is animal-cruelty-free
All lanes: Western blot analysis of PFKFB3 with anti-PFKFB3 antibody [JM43-43] (ET1705-66) at 1/500 dilution.
Lane 1: Wild-type Hela whole cell lysate.
Lane 2: PFKFB3 knockout Hela whole cell lysate.
ET1705-66 was shown to specifically react with PFKFB3 in wild-type Hela cells. No band was observed when PFKFB3 knockout sample was tested. Wild-type and PFKFB3 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. Proteins were transferred to a PVDF membrane and blocked with 5% NFDM in TBST for 1 hour at room temperature. The primary Anti-PFKFB3 antibody (ET1705-66, 1/500) and Anti-HSP90 antibody (ET1605-56, 1/10,000) were used in 5% BSA at room temperature for 2 hours. Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) Secondary Antibody (HA1001) at 1:200,000 dilution was used for 1 hour at room temperature.
In the C-terminal section; belongs to the phosphoglycerate mutase family.
Phosphorylation by AMPK stimulates activity.
Among the enzymes playing role in glycolysis,four allosteric PFKFB enzymes 1–4 expressed by four independent PFKFB genes, catalyze the rate-limiting phosphorylation of fructose-6-phosphate to fructose-1, 6-bisphosphate, using ATP as the energy source in the glycolysis pathway. Among these four allosteric enzymes, PFKFB3 enzyme retains the highest Kinase/Biphosphatase activity ratio and is expressed by PFKFB3 gene which has been demonstrated to be highly expressed in leukemic cells and in solid tumors. Moreover, mitogenic, hypoxic and inflammatory conditions have an inductive effect on the expression of PFKFB3. Hence upregulation of PFKFB genes specific to cancer cells compared to their normal counterparts (from the same patients) with more robust over-expression in breast and lung cancer make it a more appropriate target.
Just like the interactions between antigens and antibodies, the higher the affinity between you and us the better.
