RAF-1 is the cellular homolog of viral raf gene (v-raf). The encoded protein is a MAP kinase kinase kinase (MAP3K), which functions downstream of the Ras family of membrane associated GTPases to which it binds directly. Once activated, the cellular RAF-1 protein can phosphorylate to activate the dual specificity protein kinases MEK1 and MEK2, which in turn phosphorylate to activate the serine/threonine specific protein kinases, ERK1 and ERK2. Activated ERKs are pleiotropic effectors of cell physiology and play an important role in the control of gene expression involved in the cell division cycle, apoptosis, cell differentiation and cell migration. Mutations in RAF-1 are associated with Noonan syndrome 5 and LEOPARD syndrome 2 (provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008).
Mouse anti Human RAF-1 antibody detects a band of 73 kDa. The antibody has been extensively validated for western blotting using whole cell lysates.
