Endoplasmic reticulum membrane.
Ubiquitous. A high level expression is seen in secretory tissues.
Metabolic-stress sensing protein kinase that phosphorylates the alpha subunit of eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2 (eIF-2-alpha/EIF2S1) on 'Ser-52' during the unfolded protein response (UPR) and in response to low amino acid availability. Converts phosphorylated eIF-2-alpha/EIF2S1 either in a global protein synthesis inhibitor, leading to a reduced overall utilization of amino acids, or to a translation initiation activator of specific mRNAs, such as the transcriptional activator ATF4, and hence allowing ATF4-mediated reprogramming of amino acid biosynthetic gene expression to alleviate nutrient depletion. Serves as a critical effector of unfolded protein response (UPR)-induced G1 growth arrest due to the loss of cyclin-D1 (CCND1). Involved in control of mitochondrial morphology and function.
Oligomerization of the N-terminal ER luminal domain by ER stress promotes PERK trans-autophosphorylation of the C-terminal cytoplasmic kinase domain at multiple residues including Thr-982 on the kinase activation loop (By similarity). Autophosphorylated. Phosphorylated at Tyr-619 following endoplasmic reticulum stress, leading to activate its tyrosine-protein kinase activity. Dephosphorylated by PTPN1/TP1B, leading to inactivate its enzyme activity.
ADP-ribosylated by PARP16 upon ER stress, which increases kinase activity.
Endoplasmic reticulum membrane>Single-pass type I membrane protein.
Ubiquitous. A high level expression is seen in secretory tissues.
Forms dimers with HSPA5/BIP in resting cells (By similarity). Oligomerizes in ER-stressed cells (By similarity). Interacts with DNAJC3 and MFN2 (By similarity). Interacts with TMEM33. Interacts with PDIA6.
The lumenal domain senses perturbations in protein folding in the ER, probably through reversible interaction with HSPA5/BIP.
Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Ser/Thr protein kinase family. GCN2 subfamily.

Fig. 4 AGGF1 protein therapy regulates ER stress signaling and apoptosis. TAC or sham mice were treated with AGGF1 or PBS (left) and characterized (n = 6/group, **P < 0.01). a AGGF1 regulates TAC-induced ER stress signaling in mice.

The effects of AGGF1 were abolished by overexpression of CHOP by transient transfection of an expression plasmid as compared with the empty vector. No effect was observed for p-PERK (n = 3/group, **P < 0.01, N.S., Non-significant). g Real-time RT-PCR analysis for GADD34 in H9C2 cells transfected with an expression plasmid for CHOP or empty vector control, and then treated with ISO in combination with AGGF1 or PBS for 48 h (n = 3/group, *P < 0.05). Data are shown as the mean ± s.d. from at least three independent experiments. For a–e, statistical analysis was carried out by a Student’s two-tailed t-test; for f, g, statistical analysis was carried out by one-way analysis of variance

Fig. 5 BA triggers breast cancer cells apoptosis via ER stress-mediated pathway. a MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231 cells were treated with the indicated concentrations of BA for 24 h, and the protein levels of ER stress-associated signals were stimulated by BA in a dose-dependent manner, including GRP78, p-PERK/PERK, p-eIF2α/eIF2α, CHOP, and caspase-12. b MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231 cells were treated with BA alone or in combination with taxol for 24 h, the expression levels of GRP78, p-PERK/PERK, p-eIF2α/eIF2α, CHOP, and caspase-12 were also significantly upregulated following drug administration, especially in the co-treatment group, indicating the ER stress-mediated apoptosis pathway was aggravatedly activated by drug combination.
Tips: For phospho antibody, we provide phospho peptide（0.5mg) and non-phospho peptide(0.5mg).
Blocking peptides are peptides that bind specifically to the target antibody and block antibody binding. These peptide usually contains the epitope recognized by the antibody. Antibodies bound to the blocking peptide no longer bind to the epitope on the target protein. This mechanism is useful when non-specific binding is an issue, for example, in Western blotting (immunoblot) and immunohistochemistry (IHC). By comparing the staining from the blocked antibody versus the antibody alone, one can see which staining is specific; Specific binding will be absent from the western blot or immunostaining performed with the neutralized antibody.
