DEAD box proteins, characterized by the conserved motif Asp-Glu-Ala-Asp (DEAD), are putative RNA helicases which are implicated in a number of cellular processes involving RNA binding and alteration of RNA secondary structure. DDX3Y is one member of DEAD box RNA helicases, encode by the gene locate on the chromosome Y in the azoospermia factor A region. Polyclonal anti-DDX3Y antibodies (14041-1-AP) are produced by immunizing animals with C-terminus of DDX3Y and detect an 73-kDa band. As DDX3Y has a structural homolog with DDX3X, the antibody can recognize both.
