Target

  • Function

    Displays serine/threonine-specific phosphorylation of myelin basic protein and histone (MBP) in vitro.
  • Tissue specificity

    Highest 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 similarities

    Belongs 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.
  • Post-translational
    modifications

    Phosphorylated on serine and/or threonine residues by ROCK1.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm. 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.

Images

  • Overlay histogram showing Ramos cells stained with ab224967 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Triton X-100 for 15 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab224967, 1/5000 dilution) for 30 min at 22°C.

    Isotype control antibody (black line) was Rabbit IgG (monoclonal) Alexa Fluor® 647 (ab199093) used at the same concentration and conditions as the primary antibody. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control.

    Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 40 mW Red laser (640nm) and 670/14 bandpass filter.

  • ab224967 staining LIMK2 in Ramos cells. The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min), permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 for 5 minutes and then blocked with 1% BSA/10% normal goat serum/0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h. The cells were then incubated overnight at +4°C with ab224967 at 1/100 dilution (shown in red) and ab195887, Mouse monoclonal to alpha Tubulin (Alexa Fluor® 488), at 1/250 dilution (shown in green). Nuclear DNA was labelled with DAPI (shown in blue).

    Image was taken with a confocal microscope (Leica-Microsystems, TCS SP8).
