Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab93854 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|ICC/IF||Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.|
|WB||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 75 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 72 kDa).|
FunctionDisplays serine/threonine-specific phosphorylation of myelin basic protein and histone (MBP) in vitro.
Tissue specificityHighest expression in the placenta; moderate level in liver, lung, kidney, and pancreas. LIMK2a is found to be more abundant then LIMK2b in liver, colon, stomach, and spleen, while in brain, kidney, and placenta LIMK2b is the dominant form. In adult lung, both LIMK2a and LIMK2b is nearly equally observed.
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.
modificationsPhosphorylated on serine and/or threonine residues by ROCK1.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Nucleus. Isoform LIMK2a is distributed in the cytoplasm and the nucleus and Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Isoform LIMK2b occurs mainly in the cytoplasm and is scarcely translocated to the nucleus.

Predicted band size: 72 kDa
Observed band size: 75 kDa why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
Additional bands at: 56 kDa, 62 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

ICC/IF image of ab93854 stained Hek293 cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody ab93854 at 5µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was DyLight® 488 goat anti- rabbit (ab96899) IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
