Research Background


Serine/threonine-protein kinase and endoribonuclease that acts as a key sensor for the endoplasmic reticulum unfolded protein response (UPR). In unstressed cells, the endoplasmic reticulum luminal domain is maintained in its inactive monomeric state by binding to the endoplasmic reticulum chaperone HSPA5/BiP. Accumulation of misfolded protein in the endoplasmic reticulum causes release of HSPA5/BiP, allowing the luminal domain to homodimerize, promoting autophosphorylation of the kinase domain and subsequent activation of the endoribonuclease activity. The endoribonuclease activity is specific for XBP1 mRNA and excises 26 nucleotides from XBP1 mRNA. The resulting spliced transcript of XBP1 encodes a transcriptional activator protein that up-regulates expression of UPR target genes. Acts as an upstream signal for ER stress-induced GORASP2-mediated unconventional (ER/Golgi-independent) trafficking of CFTR to cell membrane by modulating the expression and localization of SEC16A.

Post-translational Modifications:

Autophosphorylated following homodimerization. Autophosphorylation promotes activation of the endoribonuclease domain.

ADP-ribosylated by PARP16 upon ER stress, which increases both kinase and endonuclease activities.

Subcellular Location:

Tissue Specificity:

Ubiquitously expressed. High levels observed in pancreatic tissue.

Subunit Structure:

Monomer. Homodimer; disulfide-linked; homodimerization takes place in response to endoplasmic reticulum stress and promotes activation of the kinase and endoribonuclease activities. Dimer formation is driven by hydrophobic interactions within the N-terminal luminal domains and stabilized by disulfide bridges. Interacts (via the luminal region) with DNAJB9/ERdj4; interaction takes place in unstressed cells and promotes recruitment of HSPA5/BiP. Interacts (via the luminal region) with HSPA5/BiP; HSPA5/BiP is a negative regulator of the unfolded protein response (UPR) that prevents homodimerization of ERN1/IRE1 and subsequent activation of the protein. Interacts with PDIA6, a negative regulator of the UPR; the interaction is direct and disrupts homodimerization. Interacts with DAB2IP (via PH domain); the interaction occurs in a endoplasmic reticulum stress-induced dependent manner and is required for subsequent recruitment of TRAF2 to ERN1/IRE1 (By similarity). Interacts with TAOK3 and TRAF2. Interacts with RNF13.


Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Ser/Thr protein kinase family.

Catalog Number :

(Blocking peptide available as DF7709-BP)

Price/Size :

Tips: For phospho antibody, we provide phospho peptide(0.5mg) and non-phospho peptide(0.5mg).

Function :

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.

Format and storage :

Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 10 mg/ml.The purity is >90%,tested by HPLC and MS.Storage Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.
