|Full Name||heat shock 70kDa protein 5 (glucose-regulated protein, 78kDa)|
|Product Description||Rabbit Polyclonal antibody to Grp78 (78 kDa glucose-regulated protein)|
|Background||When Chinese hamster K12 cells are starved of glucose, the synthesis of several proteins, called glucose-regulated proteins (GRPs), is markedly increased. Hendershot et al. (1994) [PubMed 8020977] pointed out that one of these, GRP78 (HSPA5), also referred to as 'immunoglobulin heavy chain-binding protein' (BiP), is a member of the heat-shock protein-70 (HSP70) family and is involved in the folding and assembly of proteins in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). Because so many ER proteins interact transiently with GRP78, it may play a key role in monitoring protein transport through the cell.[supplied by OMIM]|
