|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||68685 Da|
|Other Names||Glucokinase regulatory protein, GKRP, Glucokinase regulator, GCKR|
|Target/Specificity||This GCKR antibody is generated from a rabbit immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 87-120 amino acids from human GCKR.|
|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||GCKR Antibody (N-Term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Inhibits glucokinase (GCK) by forming an inactive complex with this enzyme. The affinity of GCKR for GCK is modulated by fructose metabolites: GCKR with bound fructose 6- phosphate has increased affinity for GCK, while GCKR with bound fructose 1-phosphate has strongly decreased affinity for GCK and does not inhibit GCK activity.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=Under low glucose concentrations, GKRP associates with GCK and the inactive complex is recruited to the hepatocyte nucleus|
|Tissue Location||Found in liver and pancreas. Not detected in muscle, brain, heart, thymus, intestine, uterus, adipose tissue, kidney, adrenal, lung or spleen.|
