Detection of Human Rap2B by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of K562 human chronic myelogenous leukemia cell line and HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL Mouse Anti-Human Rap2B Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5710) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). For additional reference, recombinant human Rap2A and Rap2B (5 ng/lane) were included. A specific band for Rap2B was detected at approximately 22 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 3.

Rap2B is a member of the small GTPase superfamily and ras family of proteins. Unlike normal ras proteins that have a nontransforming glutamine residue at aa 61, Rap2B has a threonine residue in that position. This change makes the intrinsic GTPase activity for Rap2B lower, thereby allowing it to exist in the activated state for a longer period of time than normal ras proteins. Aggregation of platelets by thrombin results in the activation of Rap2B in a Ca2+ and PI3 kinase-dependent manner.
