Dok2, p56 (Docking Protein, Downstream of Tyrosine Kinase, Dok-R, p56Dok2, FRIP, rasGAP-associated docking protein)
Description:
The binding protein Dok-2 is also known as p56dok-2. It is a 56kD tyrosine phosphorylated protein, purified and cloned from p210bcr-abl expressing cells, is able to bind to p120RasGAP. There is 35% identity to Dok-1 (p62dok-1). Dok-2 is a rasGAP-associated docking protein expressed mostly in hematopoietic cells. Dok-2 is phosphorylated upon activation of many protein tyrosine kinases (PTKs), including those coupled with cytokine receptors and oncogenic PTKs like Bcr-Abl. Loss of Dok-1 and/or Dok-2 in a knock out mice model carrying the bcr-abl gene resulted in progression of a myeloproliferative disease resembling human chronic myelogenous leukemia. The mouse model suggests that both Dok-1 and Dok-2 suppress leukemia as negative regulators of cytokines responses as well as maintain myeloid homeostasis.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunocytochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Western Blot: 1:1000. Detects ~60kD band.
Immunocytochemistry:1:300
ELISA: 1:100,000 (peptide).

Storage and Stability:
