Background Information

The eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2-alpha kinase 2 (EIF2AK2, also known as PKR or PRKR) is an important component of the host innate immuneantiviral response.The product of the HSAEIF2AK2 gene is a 68 kDa protein that is ubiquitously expressed at low levels. The N-terminal part of this protein contains two dsRNA binding motifs (dsRBM) .The C-terminal EIF2S1 kinase domain includes 12 sub-domains that are conserved in several Species(PMID:16954046 ).This antibody is specific to EIF2AK2.
