• Product name
    Anti-CASK antibody
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to CASK
  • Specificity
    By Western blot, this antibody detects a 112 kDa protein representing CASK from AtT20 cell lysate. Immunohistochemical staining of CASK in mouse brain with this antibody results in staining of the choroid plexus.

  • Function
    Multidomain scaffolding protein with a role in synaptic transmembrane protein anchoring and ion channel trafficking. Contributes to neural development and regulation of gene expression via interaction with the transcription factor TRB1. Binds to cell-surface proteins, including amyloid precursor protein, neurexins and syndecans. May mediate a link between the extracellular matrix and the actin cytoskeleton via its interaction with syndecan and with the actin/spectrin-binding protein 4.1.
  • Tissue specificity
    Ubiquitous. Expression is significantly greater in brain relative to kidney, lung, and liver and in fetal brain and kidney relative to lung and liver.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in CASK are the cause of mental retardation X-linked CASK-related (MRXCASK) [MIM:300749]. Mental retardation is characterized by significantly below average general intellectual functioning associated with impairments in adaptative behavior and manifested during the developmental period. Patients with mental retardation X-linked CASK-related can manifest a severe phenotype consisting of severe intellectual deficit, congenital or postnatal microcephaly, disproportionate brainstem and cerebellar hypoplasia (MICPCH Syndrome). A milder phenotype consists of mental retardation alone or associated with nystagmus.
    Defects in CASK are the cause of FG syndrome type 4 (FGS4) [MIM:300422]. FG syndrome (FGS) is an X-linked disorder characterized by mental retardation, relative macrocephaly, hypotonia and constipation.
  • Sequence similarities
    In the N-terminal section; belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CAMK Ser/Thr protein kinase family. CaMK subfamily.
    Belongs to the MAGUK family.
