The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 142 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
Use a concentration of 4 - 8 µg/ml.
FunctionSerine/threonine kinase that may play a role in the response to environmental stress and cytokines such as TNF-alpha. Appears to act upstream of the JUN N-terminal pathway.
Tissue specificityAppears to be ubiquitous. Expressed in all tissue types examined. Isoform 5 appears to be more abundant in the brain. Isoform 4 is predominant in the liver, skeletal muscle and placenta.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. STE Ser/Thr protein kinase family. STE20 subfamily. Contains 1 CNH domain. Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
Post-translational modificationsPhosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
