|Other Names||Phosphatidylinositol 4-kinase beta, PI4K-beta, PI4Kbeta, PtdIns 4-kinase beta, NPIK, PI4K92, PI4KB, PIK4CB|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8030a was selected from the N-term region of human PI4KCB . 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||Phosphorylates phosphatidylinositol (PI) in the first committed step in the production of the second messenger inositol- 1,4,5,-trisphosphate (PIP). May regulate Golgi disintegration/reorganization during mitosis, possibly via its phosphorylation. Involved in Golgi-to-plasma membrane trafficking (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Endomembrane system. Mitochondrion outer membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Rough endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Golgi apparatus. Cytoplasm, perinuclear region. Note=Found in the outer membrane of mitochondria and membranes of the rough endoplasmic reticulum Recruited to the Golgi complex by the small GTPase ARF to stimulate the synthesis of phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2) on the Golgi complex|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed with highest levels in heart, skeletal muscle, pancreas, testis and ovary. Weakly expressed in liver.|

Phosphoinositides are pivotal precursors to important second messengers and as signaling and molecules. Phosphatidylinositol 4-kinases (PI4Ks) are are crucial regulators of the phosphoinsitide cascade. PI4KCB is a wortmannin-sensitive PI 4-kinase responsible for regulating the synthesis of agonist-sensitive pools of polyphosphoinositides. The cellular reservoir of PI4KCB is predominantly cytosolic, however the protein is is activated strongly by recruitment to the membrane to stimulate phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate synthesis at the plasma membrane. PI4KCB contains an N-terminal lipid kinase unique domain, which is shared by members of both the PI3 kinase and PI4 kinase families, and a C-terminal catalytic domain, which defines this protein as a member of a much larger protein/lipid kinase family.
