|Dilution||IHC-P (20 µg/ml)|
|Other Names||Ceramide kinase, hCERK, 188.8.131.52, Acylsphingosine kinase, Lipid kinase 4, LK4, CERK, KIAA1646|
|Target/Specificity||Human CERK. BLAST analysis of the peptide immunogen showed no homology with other human proteins.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Long term: -70°C; Short term: +4°C|
|Precautions||Ceramide Kinase / CERK Antibody (N-Terminus) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Catalyzes specifically the phosphorylation of ceramide to form ceramide 1-phosphate. Acts efficiently on natural and analog ceramides (C6, C8, C16 ceramides, and C8-dihydroceramide), to a lesser extent on C2-ceramide and C6-dihydroceramide, but not on other lipids, such as various sphingosines. Binds phosphoinositides.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Membrane; Peripheral membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||High level expression in heart, brain, skeletal muscle, kidney and liver; moderate in peripheral blood leukocytes and thymus; very low in spleen, small intestine, placenta and lung|
