|Application ||WB, IHC, IF|
|Calculated MW||45518 Da|
|Other Names||cAMP-dependent protein kinase type II-alpha regulatory subunit, PRKAR2A, PKR2, PRKAR2|
|Target/Specificity||A synthetic peptide corresponding to residues in the C-terminus of human cAMP-dependent protein kinase type II-alpha regulatory subunit was used as immunogen. The antibody does not cross-react with other cAMP-dependent kinase.|
|Format||50 mM Tris-Glycine (pH 7.4), 0.15 M NaCl, 40% Glycerol, 0.01% sodium azide and 0.05% BSA.|
|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||PKA, RII Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Regulatory subunit of the cAMP-dependent protein kinases involved in cAMP signaling in cells. Type II regulatory chains mediate membrane association by binding to anchoring proteins, including the MAP2 kinase.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Cell membrane. Note=Colocalizes with PJA2 in the cytoplasm and the cell membrane|
|Tissue Location||Four types of regulatory chains are found: I- alpha, I-beta, II-alpha, and II-beta. Their expression varies among tissues and is in some cases constitutive and in others inducible|

PKA (or cAPK) is a cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase. When activated by the second messenger cAMP, PKA mediates diverse cellular mechanisms, including proliferation, ion transport, regulation of metabolism, and gene transcription (1,2). PKA is comprised of two dimers of two subunits, R (regulatory) and C (catalytic). Two families of R subunits (RI and RII) have been identified, each possessing distinct cAMP binding properties and resulting in different phosphorylation states (2,3).
