|Other Names||Testis-specific serine/threonine-protein kinase 2, TSK-2, TSK2, TSSK-2, Testis-specific kinase 2, DiGeorge syndrome protein G, DGS-G, Serine/threonine-protein kinase 22B, TSSK2, DGSG, SPOGA2, STK22B|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7190b was selected from the C-term region of human STK22B. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||DGSG, SPOGA2, STK22B|
|Function||Testis-specific serine/threonine-protein kinase required during spermatid development. Phosphorylates TSKS at 'Ser-288' and SPAG16. Involved in the late stages of spermatogenesis, during the reconstruction of the cytoplasm. During spermatogenesis, required for the transformation of a ring-shaped structure around the base of the flagellum originating from the chromatoid body.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome, centriole. Note=Present in the cytoplasm of elongating spermatids. In spermatozoa, localizes in the equatorial segment, neck, the midpiece and in a specific sperm head compartment (By similarity). In spermatids, concentrates in centrioles during flagellogenesis.|
|Tissue Location||Testis-specific. Present in mature spermatozoa (at protein level).|

STK22B is involved in the late stages of spermatogenesis, during the reconstruction of the cytoplasm. This protein may play a part in the etiology of the velocardiofacial/DiGeorge syndrome (VCFS/DGS), a developmental disorder characterized by structural and functional palate anomalies, conotruncal cardiac malformations, immunodeficiency, hypocalcemia, and typical facial anomalies.
