Serine/threonine protein involved in the signaling cascade converging to the activation of the transcription factor NF-kappa-B. May function as an IKK kinase, playing an essential role in the transcription of a subset of TNF-alpha-induced genes. Also mediates production of RANTES/CCL5 and interferon-beta/IFNB1. Has a pivotal role in the innate immune response. Phosphorylates Borna disease virus (BDV) P protein. Phosphorylates and activates IRF3 and IRF7 and allows their nuclear localization. This leads to production of alpha/beta interferons and the development of a cellular antiviral state. It also seems to be a central factor in the induction of the antiviral interferon response. Inhibition of its interaction with IRF3, due to HCV NS3 binding or BDV P protein seems to be one mechanism of inhibition of the innate immune responses of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection or Borna disease virus infection respectively.
Ubiquitous with higher expression in testis.
Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Ser/Thr protein kinase family. I-kappa-B kinase subfamily. Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
Western blot - Anti-NAK antibody [EP611Y] (ab40676)
Predicted band size : 84 kDa
Lane 1: Wild-type HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg) Lane 2: NAK knockout HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg) Lane 3: HeLa cell lysate (20 µg) Lane 4: HepG2 cell lysate (20 µg) Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab40676 observed at 90 kDa. Red - loading control, ab8245, observed at 37 kDa. ab40676 was shown to specifically react with NAK when NAK knockout samples were used. Wild-type and NAK knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab40676 and ab8245 (loading control to GAPDH) were diluted at 1/1000 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 1/10,000 dilution for 1 h at room temperature before imaging.

Secondary Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) (ab97051) at 1/20000 dilution
Predicted band size : 84 kDa Observed band size : 84 kDa Blocking/Diluting buffer 5% NFDM/TBST
Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded human hepatocellular carcinoma tissue sections labeling NAK/TBK1 with purified ab40676 at a dilution of 1/100 (11.5 μg/ml). ab97051 Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) at 1/500 was used as the secondary anitbody. Sections were counterstained with hematoxylin. Antigen retrieval was heat mediated using EDTA Buffer, pH 9.0. PBS was used instead of the primary antibody as the negative control and is shown in the inset.
Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence analysis of MCF7 (Human breast adenocarcinoma) cells labeling NAK/TBK1 with purified ab40676 at 1/100. Cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100. ab150077, Alexa Fluo®488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (1/1000) was used as the secondary antibody. Cells were counter-stained with ab195889 Anti-Alpha Tubulin antibody [DM1A] - Microtubule Marker (Alexa Fluor®594) at 1/200. DAPI (blue) was used as a nuclear counterstain. Secondary Only Control: PBS was used instead of the primary antibody as the negative control.
