|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||54744 Da|
|Antigen Region||1-30 aa|
|Other Names||Phosphatidylinositol 4-kinase type 2-beta, Phosphatidylinositol 4-kinase type II-beta, PI4KII-BETA, PI4K2B|
|Target/Specificity||This PI 4 Kinase type 2 beta antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 1-30 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human PI 4 Kinase type 2 beta.|
|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||PI 4 Kinase type 2 beta antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Together with PI4K2A and the type III PI4Ks (PIK4CA and PIK4CB) it contributes to the overall PI4-kinase activity of the cell. This contribution may be especially significant in plasma membrane, endosomal and Golgi compartments. The phosphorylation of phosphatidylinositol (PI) to PI4P is the first committed step in the generation of phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2), a precursor of the second messenger inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (InsP3). Contributes to the production of InsP3 in stimulated cells and is likely to be involved in the regulation of vesicular trafficking.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Membrane. Note=Mostly cytoplasmic but also found associated with the plasma membrane, the Golgi and endosomes. Compared to PI4K2A, a larger fraction of PI4K2B is cytosolic due to a smaller extent of palmitoylation. Translocates to membranes where it is recruited by PDGF stimulation by a Rac- GTP-dependent mechanism|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed.|

Protein kinases are enzymes that transfer a phosphate group from a phosphate donor, generally the g phosphate of ATP, onto an acceptor amino acid in a substrate protein. By this basic mechanism, protein kinases mediate most of the signal transduction in eukaryotic cells, regulating cellular metabolism, transcription, cell cycle progression, cytoskeletal rearrangement and cell movement, apoptosis, and differentiation. With more than 500 gene products, the protein kinase family is one of the largest families of proteins in eukaryotes. The family has been classified in 8 major groups based on sequence comparison of their tyrosine (PTK) or serine/threonine (STK) kinase catalytic domains.
