  • Function

    Probably involved in the control of the cell cycle. Interacts with D1 and D3-type G1 cyclins. Can phosphorylate histone H1, tau, MAP2 and NF-H and NF-M. Also interacts with p35 which activates the kinase.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CMGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family. CDC2/CDKX subfamily.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm. Cell projection > lamellipodium. Cell projection > growth cone. In axonal growth cone with extension to the peripheral lamellipodia.

Western blot

Review text: The blot image provided in this review has mouse Dorsal Striatum loaded at 70ug in lanes 2-7 and the CDK5-GST lysate in 1, 3 and 5 ug in lanes 8-10. The amount of CDK5-GST should be used at a 10th of that shown here, namely .1, .3 and .5 ug as the amount used was unnecessarily high. A goat polyclonal anti-GST antibody was used from GE Health sciences. Therefore, lanes 8-10 have a yellow band because of co-labeling of CDK5 and the GST tag. There was some nonspecific binding with the CDK5-GST lysate due to such a high amount being used. There was also nonspecific binding with the anti-GST antibody within the CDK5-GST lysate but not the Dorsal Striatum lysates.
