FunctionProtein kinase which regulates actin filament dynamics. Phosphorylates and inactivates the actin binding/depolymerizing factor cofilin, thereby stabilizing the actin cytoskeleton. Stimulates axonal outgrowth and may be involved in brain development. Isoform 3 has a dominant negative effect on actin cytoskeletal changes.
Tissue specificityHighest expression in both adult and fetal nervous system. Detected ubiquitously throughout the different regions of adult brain, with highest levels in the cerebral cortex. Expressed to a lesser extent in heart and skeletal muscle.
Involvement in diseaseNote=LIMK1 is located in the Williams-Beuren syndrome (WBS) critical region. WBS results from a hemizygous deletion of several genes on chromosome 7q11.23, thought to arise as a consequence of unequal crossing over between highly homologous low-copy repeat sequences flanking the deleted region.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. TKL Ser/Thr protein kinase family.
Contains 2 LIM zinc-binding domains.
Contains 1 PDZ (DHR) domain.
Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
Phosphorylated on serine and/or threonine residues by ROCK1. May be dephosphorylated and inactivated by SSH1.
Ubiquitinated. 'Lys-48'-linked polyubiquitination by RNF6 leads to proteasomal degradation through the 26S proteasome, modulating LIMK1 levels in the growth cone and its effect on axonal outgrowth. Also polyubiquitinated by RLIM.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Cell projection > growth cone.

Lane 1: Wild-type HAP1 cell lysate (40 µg)
Lane 2: LIMK1 knockout HAP1 cell lysate (40 µg)
Lane 3: PC12 cell lysate (20 µg)
Lane 4: NIH3T3 cell lysate (20 µg)
Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab108507 observed at 70 kDa. Red - loading control, ab8245, observed at 37 kDa.
ab108507 was shown to specifically react with LIM Kinase 1 when LIM Kinase 1 knockout samples were used. Wild-type and LIM Kinase 1 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. Ab108507 and ab8245 (loading control to GAPDH) were diluted at 1/500 and 1/10000 dilution respectively and incubated overnight at 4C. 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 1/10000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.
