|Other Names||Cyclin-dependent kinase 4, CRK3, Cell division protein kinase 4, PSK-J3, Cdk4, Crk3|
|Target/Specificity||This Mouse Cdk4 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 219-246 amino acids from the C-terminal region of mouse Cdk4.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Mouse Cdk4 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Ser/Thr-kinase component of cyclin D-CDK4 (DC) complexes that phosphorylate and inhibit members of the retinoblastoma (RB) protein family including RB1 and regulate the cell-cycle during G(1)/S transition. Phosphorylation of RB1 allows dissociation of the transcription factor E2F from the RB/E2F complexes and the subsequent transcription of E2F target genes which are responsible for the progression through the G(1) phase. Hypophosphorylates RB1 in early G(1) phase. Cyclin D-CDK4 complexes are major integrators of various mitogenenic and antimitogenic signals. Also phosphorylates SMAD3 in a cell-cycle-dependent manner and represses its transcriptional activity. Component of the ternary complex, cyclin D/CDK4/CDKN1B, required for nuclear translocation and activity of the cyclin D-CDK4 complex (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Membrane. Note=Cytoplasmic when non- complexed. Forms a cyclin D-CDK4 complex in the cytoplasm as cells progress through G(1) phase. The complex accumulates on the nuclear membrane and enters the nucleus on transition from G(1) to S phase. Also present in nucleoli and heterochromatin lumps Colocalizes with RB1 after release into the nucleus (By similarity).|
