Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab56816 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
WB Use a concentration of 1 - 5 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 88 kDa.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration.
Flow Cyt Use 1µg for 106 cells. ab170190-Mouse monoclonal IgG1, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.


  • Function
    Rapidly and transiently inhibited by phosphorylation following the generation of DNA double-stranded breaks during S-phase. This is cell cycle checkpoint and ATM-pathway dependent and appears to regulate processes involved in chromatin assembly.
  • Tissue specificity
    Widely expressed. Present in fetal placenta, liver, kidney, pancreas, heart and skeletal muscle. Also found in adult cell lines.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Ser/Thr protein kinase family.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.

  • ab56816 staining TLK2 in U2OS human osteosarcoma cell line by Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence.
    Cells were fixed in formaldehyde, permeabilized using 0.5% Triton/PBS for 5 minutes, blocked with 10% serum for 1 hour at room temperature and then incubated with ab56816 at a 1/100 dilution for 1 hour. The secondary used was an Alexa-Fluor 488 conjugated goat anti-mouse polyclonal used at a 1/500 dilution.

  • Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab56816 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 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 (ab56816, 1µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG1 [ICIGG1] (ab91353, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed.
