  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for IHC-P or IP.
  • Target

    • Function
      Receptor-proximal protein kinase regulating integrin-mediated signal transduction. May act as a mediator of inside-out integrin signaling. Focal adhesion protein part of the complex ILK-PINCH. This complex is considered to be one of the convergence points of integrin- and growth factor-signaling pathway. Could be implicated in mediating cell architecture, adhesion to integrin substrates and anchorage-dependent growth in epithelial cells. Phosphorylates beta-1 and beta-3 integrin subunit on serine and threonine residues, but also AKT1 and GSK3B.
    • Tissue specificity
      Highly expressed in heart followed by skeletal muscle, pancreas and kidney. Weakly expressed in placenta, lung and liver.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. TKL Ser/Thr protein kinase family.
      Contains 5 ANK repeats.
      Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
    • Domain
      A PH-like domain is involved in phosphatidylinositol phosphate binding.
    • Post-translational
      Autophosphorylated on serine residues.
    • Cellular localization
      Cell junction > focal adhesion. Cell membrane.

      ab76468 was shown to specifically react with Integrin linked ILK when Integrin linked ILK knockout samples were used. Wild-type and Integrin linked ILK knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab76468 and ab8245 (loading control to GAPDH) were diluted at 1/5000 and 1/10 000 respectively and incubated overnight at 4°C. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preadsorbed (ab216773) and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preadsorbed (ab216776) secondary antibodies at 1/10000 dilution for 1 h at room temperature before imaging.

    • Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence analysis of A431 (human epidermoid carcinoma) cells labelling Integrin linked ILK (green) with purified ab76468 at 1/500. Cells were fixed with 100% methanol. ab150077, Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (1/1000) was used as the secondary antibody. Nuclei were stained blue with DAPI.  

      Secondary Only Control: PBS was used instead of the primary antibody as the negative control.

    • Overlay histogram showing HEK293 cells stained with ab76468 (red line). The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab76468, 1/100 dilution) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was a goat anti-rabbit DyLight® 488 (IgG; H+L) (ab96899) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit IgG (monoclonal) (1 µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed. This antibody gave a positive signal in HEK293 cells fixed with 80% methanol (5 min)/permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min used under the same conditions.
