|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||42443 Da|
|Application & Usage||Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes 42 kDa bands from samples of human, mouse and rat origins. Reactivity to other species has not been tested.|
|Other Names||SPK1, SPK-1, SPK 1, sphk, SK1, SK 1|
|Formulation||100 µg (0.5mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA and 0.01% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||Sphingosine Kinase 1 (SPK1) Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Catalyzes the phosphorylation of sphingosine to form sphingosine 1-phosphate (SPP), a lipid mediator with both intra- and extracellular functions. Also acts on D-erythro-sphingosine and to a lesser extent sphinganine, but not other lipids, such as D,L-threo-dihydrosphingosine, N,N-dimethylsphingosine, diacylglycerol, ceramide, or phosphatidylinositol (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Cell membrane. Note=Translocated from the cytoplasm to the plasma membrane in a CIB1-dependent manner|

Sphingosine Kinase (SphK) is a conserved lipid kinase that catalyzes the phosphorylation of sphingolipid sphingosine to sphingosine-1-phosphate (SIP). SIP receptors coupled to cell surface G protein to regulate cell growth, survival, motility and inflammatory responses. There are two types of SphK, SphK1 and SphK2. SphK1 is found in the cytosol and migrates to the membrane when activated. SphK1 has been associated with cell growth, prevention of apoptosis and cellular transformation. SphK2 is found mainly in the nucleus and in contrast to SphK1, it enhances the rate of apoptosis.
