Detects human A-Raf in direct ELISAs and Western blots.
In direct ELISAs, no cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) B-Raf, rhRaf-1 (aa 1-648), rhRaf-1 (aa 189-353), or rhKSR1 is observed. In Western blots, no cross-reactivity
with recombinant human (rh) B-Raf or rhKSR1 is observed.

Detection of Human A‑Raf by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of 293T human embryonic kidney cell line and HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line. PVDF Membrane was probed with 0.5 µg/mL of Human A‑Raf Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6607) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for A‑Raf at approximately 68 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

The Raf serine/threonine kinases are effectors of Ras that function as MAP3Ks in the ERK phosphorylation cascade. Mammals express three Raf proteins: A-Raf, B-Raf, and Raf-1, also known as C-Raf. Human A-Raf is a 70 kDa protein that shares three regions with B-Raf and Raf-1: aa 14-153 which contains a Ras-binding domain, a Cys-rich domain, and a lipid-binding domain; aa 209-223; and aa 308-573 which contains the Ser/Thr protein kinase domain and a second lipid-binding domain. A-Raf is activated by phosphorylation at Ser 257, 262, and 264. It then regulates multiple processes including endocytic trafficking, glycolysis, cell cycle progression, and apoptosis. Within aa 150-314, human A-Raf shares 87% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat A-Raf.
