|Other Names||Serine/threonine-protein kinase Nek6, Never in mitosis A-related kinase 6, NimA-related protein kinase 6, Protein kinase SID6-1512, NEK6|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8077a was selected from the N-term region of human NEK6 . 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||Protein kinase which plays an important role in mitotic cell cycle progression. Required for chromosome segregation at metaphase-anaphase transition, robust mitotic spindle formation and cytokinesis. Phosphorylates ATF4, CIR1, PTN, RAD26L, RBBP6, RPS7, RPS6KB1, TRIP4, STAT3 and histones H1 and H3. Phosphorylates KIF11 to promote mitotic spindle formation. Involved in G2/M phase cell cycle arrest induced by DNA damage. Inhibition of activity results in apoptosis. May contribute to tumorigenesis by suppressing p53/TP53-induced cancer cell senescence.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Nucleus speckle. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, spindle pole Note=Colocalizes with APBB1 at the nuclear speckles. Colocalizes with PIN1 in the nucleus. Colocalizes with ATF4, CIR1, ARHGAP33, ANKRA2, CDC42, NEK9, RAD26L, RBBP6, RPS7, TRIP4, RELB and PHF1 in the centrosome. Localizes to spindle microtubules in metaphase and anaphase and to the midbody during cytokinesis|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitous, with highest expression in heart and skeletal muscle. Up-regulated in a variety of malignant cancers, such as breast, colon, lung, and gastric cancers|

NEK6 is a serine/threonine kinase that controls initiation of mitosis. NEK6 is activated during M phase. It is required for chromosome segregation at metaphase-anaphase transition and therefore for mitotic progression. Inhibition of activity results in apoptosis.
