Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000 - 1/10000. Predicted molecular weight: 73 kDa.
  • Application notesIs unsuitable for Flow Cyt,ICC,IHC-P or IP.
  • Target

    • FunctionProtein kinase which regulates actin filament dynamics. Phosphorylates and inactivates the actin binding/depolymerizing factor cofilin, thereby stabilizing the actin cytoskeleton. Stimulates axonal outgrowth and may be involved in brain development. Isoform 3 has a dominant negative effect on actin cytoskeletal changes.
    • Tissue specificityHighest expression in both adult and fetal nervous system. Detected ubiquitously throughout the different regions of adult brain, with highest levels in the cerebral cortex. Expressed to a lesser extent in heart and skeletal muscle.
    • Involvement in diseaseNote=LIMK1 is located in the Williams-Beuren syndrome (WBS) critical region. WBS results from a hemizygous deletion of several genes on chromosome 7q11.23, thought to arise as a consequence of unequal crossing over between highly homologous low-copy repeat sequences flanking the deleted region.
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. TKL Ser/Thr protein kinase family.
      Contains 2 LIM zinc-binding domains.
      Contains 1 PDZ (DHR) domain.
      Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
    • Post-translational
      modifications
      Autophosphorylated.
      Phosphorylated on serine and/or threonine residues by ROCK1. May be dephosphorylated and inactivated by SSH1.
      Ubiquitinated. 'Lys-48'-linked polyubiquitination by RNF6 leads to proteasomal degradation through the 26S proteasome, modulating LIMK1 levels in the growth cone and its effect on axonal outgrowth. Also polyubiquitinated by RLIM.
    • Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Cell projection > growth cone.

      Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab108507 observed at 70 kDa. Red - loading control, ab8245, observed at 37 kDa.

      ab108507 was shown to specifically react with LIM Kinase 1 when LIM Kinase 1 knockout samples were used. Wild-type and LIM Kinase 1 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. Ab108507 and ab8245 (loading control to GAPDH) were diluted at 1/500 and 1/10,000 dilution respectively and incubated overnight at 4C. Blots were developed with IRDye® 800CW Goat anti-Rabbit IgG (H + L) and IRDye® 680 Goat anti-Mouse IgG (H + L) secondary antibodies at 1/10,000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.
