Target Protein: OVCA1
Entrez Gene: 1801
Source: KLH conjugated synthetic peptide derived from human OVCA1
Purification: Purified by Protein A.
Storage: Aqueous buffered solution containing 1% BSA, 50% glycerol and 0.09% sodium azide. Store at -20°C for 12 months.
Background: OVCA1 is required for the first step in the synthesis of diphthamide, a unique posttranslationally modified histidine found only in translation elongation factor-2 (EEF2; MIM 130610). This modification is conserved from archaebacteria to humans and serves as the target for ADP-ribosylation and inactivation of EEF2 by diphtheria toxin (DT) and Pseudomonas exotoxin A. OVCA1 is one of several enzymes involved in synthesis of diphthamide in EEF2.
