|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||87661 Da|
|Antigen Region||141-171 aa|
|Other Names||Serine/threonine-protein kinase tousled-like 2, HsHPK, PKU-alpha, Tousled-like kinase 2, TLK2|
|Target/Specificity||This TLK2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 141-171 amino acids from the Central region of human TLK2.|
|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||TLK2 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Serine/threonine-protein kinase involved in the process of chromatin assembly and probably also DNA replication, transcription, repair, and chromosome segregation. Phosphorylates the chromatin assembly factors ASF1A AND ASF1B. Phosphorylation of ASF1A prevents its proteasome-mediated degradation, thereby enhancing chromatin assembly. Negative regulator of amino acid starvation-induced autophagy.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Cytoplasm, perinuclear region. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Note=Colocalizes with the cytoplasmic intermediate filament system during the G1 phase of the cell cycle. Present in the perinuclear region at S phase and in the nucleus at late G2|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitous. Detected in placenta, fetal liver, kidney, pancreas, heart and skeletal muscle. Highly expressed in testis. Detected in spleen, thymus, colon, ovary, small intestine, prostate and peripheral blood leukocytes|

TLK2, a member of the Ser/Thr protein kinase family, is rapidly and transiently inhibited by phosphorylation following the generation of DNA double-stranded breaks during S-phase. This is cell cycle checkpoint and ATM-pathway dependent and appears to regulate processes involved in chromatin assembly. The TLK2 enzyme is cell-cycle regulated, with maximal activity in S-phase. It is inactivated by phosphorylation at Ser-750, potentially by CHK1. TLK2 heterodimerizes with TLK1. This nuclear protein is widely expressed, with presence in fetal placenta, liver, kidney, pancreas, heart and skeletal muscle tissues, and in several adult cell lines.
