PKN Antibody (C-term) Blocking Peptide

Synthetic peptide

Product Information
Primary Accession Q16512
Clone Names 2032203
Peptide ID 2032203
Additional Information
Gene ID 5585
Other Names Serine/threonine-protein kinase N1, Protease-activated kinase 1, PAK-1, Protein kinase C-like 1, Protein kinase C-like PKN, Protein kinase PKN-alpha, Protein-kinase C-related kinase 1, Serine-threonine protein kinase N, PKN1, PAK1, PKN, PRK1, PRKCL1
Target/Specificity The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7938a was selected from the C-term region of human PKN . 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.
StorageMaintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.
PrecautionsThis product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
Protein Information
Name PKN1
Synonyms PAK1, PKN, PRK1, PRKCL1
Function PKC-related serine/threonine-protein kinase involved in various processes such as regulation of the intermediate filaments of the actin cytoskeleton, cell migration, tumor cell invasion and transcription regulation. Regulates the cytoskeletal network by phosphorylating proteins such as VIM and neurofilament proteins NEFH, NEFL and NEFM, leading to inhibit their polymerization. Phosphorylates 'Ser-575', 'Ser-637' and 'Ser-669' of MAPT/Tau, lowering its ability to bind to microtubules, resulting in disruption of tubulin assembly. Acts as a key coactivator of androgen receptor (ANDR)-dependent transcription, by being recruited to ANDR target genes and specifically mediating phosphorylation of 'Thr-11' of histone H3 (H3T11ph), a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation that promotes demethylation of histone H3 'Lys-9' (H3K9me) by KDM4C/JMJD2C. Phosphorylates HDAC5, HDAC7 and HDAC9, leading to impair their import in the nucleus. Phosphorylates 'Thr-38' of PPP1R14A, 'Ser- 159', 'Ser-163' and 'Ser-170' of MARCKS, and GFAP. Able to phosphorylate RPS6 in vitro.
Cellular Location Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Endosome. Cell membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Cleavage furrow. Midbody Note=Associates with chromatin in a ligand-dependent manner Localization to endosomes is mediated via its interaction with RHOB. Association to the cell membrane is dependent on Ser-374 phosphorylation. Accumulates during telophase at the cleavage furrow and finally concentrates around the midbody in cytokinesis
Tissue Location Found ubiquitously. Expressed in heart, brain, placenta, lung, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas. Expressed in numerous tumor cell lines, especially in breast tumor cells

PKN, a member of the PKC subfamily of Ser/Thr protein kinases, can phosphorylate ribosomal protein S6. It mediates GTPase Rho dependent intracellular signalling. This protein is activated by lipids, particularly cardiolipin and to a lesser extent by other acidic phospholipids This cytoplasmic protein is expressed ubiquitously, including heart, brain, placenta, lung, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas.
