Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab51250 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 1/500. Detects a band of approximately 105 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 97 kDa).
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration.
ICC/IF 1/100 - 1/250.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for IP.
  • Target

    • Function
      Converts transient diacylglycerol (DAG) signals into prolonged physiological effects, downstream of PKC. Involved in resistance to oxidative stress.
    • Tissue specificity
      Widely expressed.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CAMK Ser/Thr protein kinase family. PKD subfamily.
      Contains 1 PH domain.
      Contains 2 phorbol-ester/DAG-type zinc fingers.
      Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
    • Post-translational
      Phosphorylation of Ser-876 correlates with the activation status of the kinase.
      Ser-706 is probably phosphorylated by PKC.
    • Cellular localization
      Cytoplasm. Membrane. Translocation to the cell membrane is required for kinase activation.

    • Lane 1: Wild-type HAP1 cell lysate (40 µg)
      Lane 2: Protein Kinase D2 knockout HAP1 cell lysate (40 µg)
      Lane 3: HeLa cell lysate (20 µg)
      Lane 4: HEK293 cell lysate (20 µg)
      Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab51250 observed at 110 kDa. Red - loading control, ab8245, observed at 37 kDa.

      ab51250 was shown to recognize Protein Kinase D2 when Protein Kinase D2 knockout samples were used, along with additional cross-reactive bands. Wild-type and Protein Kinase D2 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. Ab51250 and ab8245 (loading control to GAPDH) were diluted at 1/500 and 1:10,000 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 1:10,000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.

      Goat anti-rabbit HRP labeled at 1/2000 dilution

      Predicted band size: 97 kDa
      Observed band size: 105 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)

    • Ab51250 (1:100) staining human Protein Kinase D2 in human breast carcinoma tissue by immunohistochemistry using paraffin embedded tissue.
    • ICC/IF image of ab51250 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 4% Formaldehyde fixed (10 mins) 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 (ab51250, 10µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899, DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 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.
