- CITATIONS: 1
|Application ||WB, IHC-P, FC, E|
|Calculated MW||118392 Da|
|Antigen Region||21-52 aa|
|Other Names||Inactive tyrosine-protein kinase 7, Colon carcinoma kinase 4, CCK-4, Protein-tyrosine kinase 7, Pseudo tyrosine kinase receptor 7, Tyrosine-protein kinase-like 7, PTK7, CCK4|
|Target/Specificity||This CCK4 (PTK7) antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 21-52 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human CCK4 (PTK7).|
|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||CCK4 (PTK7) Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Inactive tyrosine kinase involved in Wnt signaling pathway. Component of both the non-canonical (also known as the Wnt/planar cell polarity signaling) and the canonical Wnt signaling pathway. Functions in cell adhesion, cell migration, cell polarity, proliferation, actin cytoskeleton reorganization and apoptosis. Has a role in embryogenesis, epithelial tissue organization and angiogenesis.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein Cell junction. Note=Colocalizes with MMP14 at cell junctions. Also localizes at the leading edge of migrating cells|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in lung, liver, pancreas, kidney, placenta and melanocytes. Weakly expressed in thyroid gland, ovary, brain, heart and skeletal muscle. Also expressed in erythroleukemia cells. But not expressed in colon|
Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
CCK4 may function as a cell adhesion molecule. Although it belongs to the insuline receptor subfamily of the Tyr protein kinases, it likely lacks the catalytic activity of a tyrosine kinase. It may be connected to the pathophysiology of colon carcinomas and/or may represent a tumor progression marker. This Type I membrane protein is highly expressed in lung, liver, pancreas, kidney, placenta and melanocytes, but weakly expressed in thyroid gland, ovary, brain, heart and skeletal muscle, and not in colon. It is also expressed in erythroleukemia cells.
