Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/500 - 1/3000. Predicted molecular weight: 142 kDa.

  • Function

    May regulate vesicle trafficking and modulate the subcellular distribution of SLC2A4/GLUT4-vesicles. Has PARP activity and can modify TERF1, and thereby contribute to the regulation of telomere length.
  • Tissue specificity

    Ubiquitous; highest levels in testis.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 15 ANK repeats.
    Contains 1 PARP catalytic domain.
    Contains 1 SAM (sterile alpha motif) domain.
  • Post-translational

    Phosphorylated on serine residues by MAPK kinases upon insulin stimulation.
    ADP-ribosylated (-auto).
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm. Golgi apparatus membrane. Chromosome > centromere. Nucleus > nuclear pore complex. Chromosome > telomere. Associated with the Golgi and with juxtanuclear SLC2A4/GLUT4-vesicles. A minor proportion is also found at nuclear pore complexes and around the pericentriolar matrix of mitotic centromeres. During interphase, a small fraction of TNKS is found in the nucleus, associated with TERF1.
