|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||NP_009185, 11284|
|Calculated MW||57076 Da|
|Other Names||Bifunctional polynucleotide phosphatase/kinase, DNA 5'-kinase/3'-phosphatase, Polynucleotide kinase-3'-phosphatase, Polynucleotide 3'-phosphatase, 188.8.131.52, 2'(3')-polynucleotidase, Polynucleotide 5'-hydroxyl-kinase, 184.108.40.206, PNKP|
|Format||0.5 mg IgG/ml in Tris saline (20mM Tris pH7.3, 150mM NaCl), 0.02% sodium azide, with 0.5% bovine serum albumin|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Goat Anti-PNKP / PNK Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Plays a key role in the repair of DNA damage, functioning as part of both the non-homologous end-joining (NHEJ) and base excision repair (BER) pathways. Through its two catalytic activities, PNK ensures that DNA termini are compatible with extension and ligation by either removing 3'-phosphates from, or by phosphorylating 5'-hydroxyl groups on, the ribose sugar of the DNA backbone.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in many tissues with highest expression in spleen and testis, and lowest expression in small intestine (PubMed:10446192). Expressed in higher amount in pancreas, heart and kidney and at lower levels in brain, lung and liver (PubMed:10446193).|

This locus represents a gene involved in DNA repair. In response to ionizing radiation or oxidative damage, the protein encoded by this locus catalyzes 5' phosphorylation and 3' dephosphorylation of nucleic acids. Mutations at this locus have been associated with microcephaly, seizures, and developmental delay.
