Purification notesPurified from rabbit antiserum by affinity chromatography using epitope specific phosphopeptide. The antibody against non-phosphopeptide was removed by chromatography using non-phosphopeptide corresponding to the phosphorylation site.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 39 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 39 kDa).
FunctionCasein kinases are operationally defined by their preferential utilization of acidic proteins such as caseins as substrates. It can phosphorylate a large number of proteins. Participates in Wnt signaling. Phosphorylates CTNNB1 at 'Ser-45'. May play a role in segregating chromosomes during mitosis.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CK1 Ser/Thr protein kinase family. Casein kinase I subfamily. Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > centrosome. Chromosome > centromere > kinetochore. Nucleus speckle. Localizes to the centrosome in interphase cells, and to kinetochore fibers during mitosis.
