Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab25756 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Blocking - Blocking peptide for Anti-CDKL5 antibody (ab22453)
- First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions.
- If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer.
- Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent.
- Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised.
- Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

Involvement in diseaseNote=Chromosomal aberrations involving CDKL5 are found in patients manifesting early-onset seizures and spams and psychomotor impairment. Translocation t(X;6)(p22.3;q14); translocation t(X;7)(p22.3;p15).
Defects in CDKL5 are a cause of epileptic encephalopathy early infantile type 2 (EIEE2) [MIM:300672]; also known as atypical CDKL5-related Rett syndrome. EIEE2 is a severe form of epilepsy characterized by seizures or spasms beginning in infancy. Patients manifest features resembling Rett syndrome such as microcephaly, lack of speech development, stereotypic hand movements.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CMGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family. CDC2/CDKX subfamily.
Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
