This peptide corresponds to 17 amino acids near the center of human DDX60.
PEP-1484 can be used as a blocking peptide with polyclonal antibody PA5-34442.
DDX60 is a DEXD/H Box RNA helicase and the human homolog of the S. cerevisiae Ski2, a cofactor of RNA exosome. Expression of DDX60 increases after viral infection and binds to endogenous RIG-I, a cytoplasmic viral RNA sensor, as well as other RIG-I-like receptors such as MDA5 and LGP2. These proteins activate TBK1 and IKK-e, signaling IRF3 and NF-kB-responsive genes in the innate immune response pathway. DDX60 is required for the RIG-I- or MDA5-dependent response to viral infection, but is dispensable for TLR3-mediated signaling.
