Raf1 RBD Protein, Human, Recombinant, Biotinylated
Ras Binding Domain (RBD) of Human Raf-1 Proto-Oncogene, Serine/Threonine Kinase (RAF1), (UniProt # P04049, amino acids 50-140) with the N-terminal AviTag™ peptide and His-tag is produced in E. coli cells and site-specifically biotinylated at AviTag with BirA enzyme (https://amidbiosciences.com/collections/proteins/products/bira-biotin-ligase).
The Raf1 RBD protein binds specifically to GTP-bound Ras proteins. Ras proteins, like other small GTPases, regulate molecular events by cycling between an inactive GDP-bound form and an active GTP-bound form. In its active (GTP-bound) state, Ras binds specifically to the Ras-binding domain (RBD) of Raf1 to control downstream signaling cascades. The affinity between RBD and GDP-bound Ras is three orders of magnitude lower (1). Therefore, the RBD protein can be used to specifically precipitate active, GTP-bound Ras as well as to specifically block the activity of Ras in vitro and in vivo.
