|Calculated MW||52249 Da|
|Antigen Region||64-94 aa|
|Other Names||Choline kinase alpha, CK, CHETK-alpha, Ethanolamine kinase, EK, CHKA, CHK, CKI|
|Target/Specificity||This CHK antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 64-94 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human CHK.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|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||CHK Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Has a key role in phospholipid biosynthesis and may contribute to tumor cell growth. Catalyzes the first step in phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis. Contributes to phosphatidylethanolamine biosynthesis. Phosphorylates choline and ethanolamine. Has higher activity with choline.|

Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
The dominant pathway for biosynthesis of phosphatidylcholine occurs through the CDP-choline pathway. Choline kinase alpha (CHK) is the first enzyme in the pathway and may thereby play an upstream regulatory role in lipid transport and metabolism. CHK additionally catalyzes phosphorylation of ethanolamine.
