|Other Names||Cyclin-dependent kinase 5 activator 1, CDK5 activator 1, Cyclin-dependent kinase 5 regulatory subunit 1, TPKII regulatory subunit, Cyclin-dependent kinase 5 activator 1, p35, p35, Cyclin-dependent kinase 5 activator 1, p25, p25, Tau protein kinase II 23 kDa subunit, p23, CDK5R1, CDK5R, NCK5A|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7743a was selected from the p35 region of human CDK5R1(p35). A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI 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||p35 is a neuron specific activator of CDK5. The complex p35/CDK5 is required for neurite outgrowth and cortical lamination. Involved in dendritic spine morphogenesis by mediating the EFNA1-EPHA4 signaling. Activator of TPKII. The complex p35/CDK5 participates in the regulation of the circadian clock by modulating the function of CLOCK protein: phosphorylates CLOCK at 'Thr-451' and 'Thr-461' and regulates the transcriptional activity of the CLOCK-ARNTL/BMAL1 heterodimer in association with altered stability and subcellular distribution.|
|Cellular Location||Cyclin-dependent kinase 5 activator 1, p35: Cell membrane; Lipid-anchor; Cytoplasmic side. Note=In the primary cortical neurons, p35 is present in the peripheries and nerve terminals|
|Tissue Location||Brain and neuron specific.|

p35 is a neuron-specific activator of cyclin-dependent kinase 5 (CDK5); the activation of CDK5 is required for proper development of the central nervous system. The p35 form of this protein is proteolytically cleaved by calpain, generating a p25 form. The cleavage of p35 into p25 results in relocalization of the protein from the cell periphery to nuclear and perinuclear regions. P25 deregulates CDK5 activity by prolonging its activation and changing its cellular location. The p25 form accumulates in the brain neurons of patients with Alzheimer's disease. This accumulation correlates with an increase in CDK5 kinase activity, and may lead to aberrantly phosphorylated forms of the microtubule-associated protein tau, which contributes to Alzheimer's disease.
