|Application ||WB, ICC, E|
|Other Accession||AB011421, 3834355|
|Calculated MW||42344 Da|
|Application Notes||DRAK2 antibody can be used for detection of DRAK2 by Western blot 0.5 µg/mL. An approximately 45 kDa band can be detected. Antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry starting at 10 µg/mL.|
|Other Names||DRAK2 Antibody: DRAK2, DRAK2, DAP kinase-related apoptosis-inducing protein kinase 2, serine/threonine kinase 17b|
|Target/Specificity||STK17B; It has no cross responses to DAP or ZIP kinases. The approximately 70 kDa band is probably non-related to DRAK2 although it is peptide blockable.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||DRAK2 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||DRAK2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Phosphorylates myosin light chains (By similarity). Acts as a positive regulator of apoptosis.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Cell membrane. Endoplasmic reticulum-Golgi intermediate compartment. Note=Colocalizes with STK17B at the plasma membrane.|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in placenta, lung, pancreas. Lower levels in heart, brain, liver, skeletal muscle and kidney|

DRAK2 Antibody: Apoptosis is mediated by death domain containing adapter molecules and a caspase family of proteases. Certain serine/threonine protein kinases, such as ASK-1 and RIP, are mediators of apoptosis. Two novel serine/threonine kinases that induce apoptosis were recently identified and designated DRAK1 and DRAK2 (for DAP kinase-related apoptosis-inducing protein kinases). DRAKs contain an N-terminal kinase domain and a C-terminal regulation domain. Overexpression of DRAK2 induces apoptosis. DRAKs have high sequence homology to DAP and ZIP kinases, and they represent a novel family of serine/threonine kinases, which mediates apoptosis through their catalytic activities. DRAK2 is located in nucleus and the messenger RNA was ubiquitously expressed in human tissues.
