- CITATIONS: 1
|Other Names||Casein kinase I isoform alpha, CKI-alpha, CK1, CSNK1A1|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7400a was selected from the C-term region of human CK1a . 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.|
|Function||Casein kinases are operationally defined by their preferential utilization of acidic proteins such as caseins as substrates. It can phosphorylate a large number of proteins. Participates in Wnt signaling. Phosphorylates CTNNB1 at 'Ser-45'. May phosphorylate PER1 and PER2. May play a role in segregating chromosomes during mitosis (PubMed:11955436, PubMed:1409656, PubMed:18305108). May play a role in keratin cytoskeleton disassembly and thereby, it may regulate epithelial cell migration (PubMed:23902688).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome. Chromosome, centromere, kinetochore. Nucleus speckle. Note=Localizes to the centrosome in interphase cells, and to kinetochore fibers during mitosis. Also recruited to the keratin cytoskeleton (PubMed:23902688)|
Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
Casein kinases are operationally defined by their preferential utilization of acidic proteins such as caseins as substrates. CK1a can phosphorylate a large number of proteins. This cytoplasmic protein participates in Wnt signaling. It has been demonstrated to phosphorylate CTNNB1 on Ser-45 and to interact with the Axin complex.
