Background Information

The 2-prime,5-prime oligoadenylate synthetases (OASs), such as OAS2, are interferon-induced proteins characterized by their capacity to catalyze the synthesis of 2-prime,5-prime oligomers of adenosine (2-5As). OAS2 is also named as p69 OAS/p71 OAS. It has 3 isoforms(71/69/20 kDa) produced by alternative splicing. The OAS2 isozymes are 69-71 kDa and form dimers(PMID:17765707). Glycosylation is essential for its activity(PMID:9880569). Constitutive expression of the 69-kDa form of the OAS2 protein in human cells inhibited the replication of encephalomyocarditis virus (EMCV) but not that of VSV, Sendai virus, or reovirus(PMID:16501108). This antibody recognizes isoform p71 and isoform p69 of OAS2.
