Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab83978 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
WB 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.


  • FunctionMay regulate vesicle trafficking and modulate the subcellular distribution of SLC2A4/GLUT4-vesicles. Has PARP activity and can modify TERF1, and thereby contribute to the regulation of telomere length.
  • Tissue specificityUbiquitous; highest levels in testis.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 15 ANK repeats.
    Contains 1 PARP catalytic domain.
    Contains 1 SAM (sterile alpha motif) domain.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated on serine residues by MAPK kinases upon insulin stimulation.
    ADP-ribosylated (-auto).
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Golgi apparatus membrane. Chromosome > centromere. Nucleus > nuclear pore complex. Chromosome > telomere. Associated with the Golgi and with juxtanuclear SLC2A4/GLUT4-vesicles. A minor proportion is also found at nuclear pore complexes and around the pericentriolar matrix of mitotic centromeres. During interphase, a small fraction of TNKS is found in the nucleus, associated with TERF1.

    Predicted band size : 142 kDa
    Observed band size : 150 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : ~65 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
