In the glycolytic pathway, PKM2 as a limiting glycolytic enzyme catalyzes the transfer of a phosphate group from phosphoenolpyruvate to ADP generating pyruvate and ATP, which is important for tumor metabolism and growth. Apart from its pyruvate kinase activity, PKM2 also possesses non-metabolic activities such as acting as a protein kinase to phosphorylate various protein targets. PKM2 also participates in many other processes regarding tumor pathology, including cancer metastasis, epithelial-mesenchymal-transition (EMT), gene expression, mitosis, cellular proliferation, apoptosis, DNA damage response, and exosome secretion.

This recombinant PKM antibody was developed with the Single B cell platform. The main process included identification and isolation of single B cells; amplification and cloning of PKM antibody gene; expression, screening, and identification of antibody specificity.  And this PKM antibody has been validated in ELISA, WB, IHC, IF, FC, IP.

Target Background

Glycolytic enzyme that catalyzes the transfer of a phosphoryl group from phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) to ADP, generating ATP. The ratio between the highly active tetrameric form and nearly inactive dimeric form determines whether glucose carbons are channeled to biosynthetic processes or used for glycolytic ATP production. The transition between the 2 forms contributes to the control of glycolysis and is important for tumor cell proliferation and survival. In addition to its role in glycolysis, also regulates transcription. Stimulates POU5F1-mediated transcriptional activation. Promotes in a STAT1-dependent manner, the expression of the immune checkpoint protein CD274 in ARNTL/BMAL1-deficient macrophages. Also acts as a translation regulator for a subset of mRNAs, independently of its pyruvate kinase activity: associates with subpools of endoplasmic reticulum-associated ribosomes, binds directly to the mRNAs translated at the endoplasmic reticulum and promotes translation of these endoplasmic reticulum-destined mRNAs. Plays a general role in caspase independent cell death of tumor cells.
