Monoclonal antibodies against human translation termination factor eRF3 and their utilization for sub-cellular localization of eRF3.

Abstract : Eukaryotic translation termination is triggered by peptide release factors eRF1 and eRF3. eRF1 recognizes the stop codon and promotes nascent peptide chain release, while eRF3 facilitates this peptide release in a GTP-dependent manner. In addition to its role in termination, eRF3 is involved in normal and nonsense-mediated mRNA decay. Despite extensive investigation, the complete understanding of eRF3 function have been hampered by the lack of specific anti-eRF3 monoclonal antibodies (Mabs). The purpose of the study was production of recombinant eRF3a/GSPT1, development of anti-eRF3a/GSPT1 Mabs and their utilization for eRF3a/GSPT1 sub-cellular localization. Plasmid encoding C-terminal part of human GSPT1/eRF3a was constructed. Purified protein, which was predominantly present in the inclusion bodies, was used for the development of Mabs. Characterization of the regions recognized by Mabs using GSPT1/eRF3a mutants and its visualization in the 3D space suggested that Mabs recognize different epitopes. Consistent with its function in translational termination, immunostaining of the cells with developed Mabs revealed that the endogenous GSPT1/eRF3a localized in endoplasmic reticulum. Taking into account the important role of eRF3 for the fundamental research one can suggests that developed Mabs have great prospective to be used as a research reagent in a wide range of applications.
