Background of 14-3-3 protein zeta/delta antibody

It is a member of the 14-3-3 family which consists of 30kDa proteins that are involved in multiple protein kinase signaling pathways, regulation of cell cycle progression, cytoskeletal structure, transcription, intracellular trafficking and targeting. Protein interactions with 14-3-3 show distinct preference for its different isotypes and are regulated by phosphorylation of both 14-3-3 and the bound protein. 14-3-3 zeta is a susceptibility gene for paranoid schizophrenia and is overexpressed in the temporal cortex of cognitively impared Alzheimers patients. The protein binds yeast Sps1/Ste20-related kinase 1 (YSK1) and localizes to the golgi, possibly linking YSK1 signaling, protein transport, cell adhesion and migration. It co-localizes with epidermal growth factor receptor to the plasma membrane following epidermal growth factor signaling. The zeta isoform is involved in MAPKAPK2-mediated phosphorylation which may have a role in p38 MAPK-dependent inflammation. When bound to ADAM 22, 14-3-3 zeta is involved in cell adhesion. 14-3-3 zeta also interacts with cofilin, LIM-domain-containing protein kinase 1, protein kinase B/Akt and GPI alpha.
