|Description||Tyk2 (tyrosine kinase 2),with 1187-amino acid protein (about 131kDa), belongs to the family of non-receptor janus tyrosine kinases, which also includes Jak1, Jak2, and Jak3. Kinases of the Jak family regulate a spectrum of cellular functions downstream of activated cytokine receptors in the lympho-hematopoietic system. Tyk2 is activated by a variety of cytokines: IFN-alpha, IFN-beta, IL-6, IL-10, IL-12, and IL-13 and promotes IFN-gamma production by Th1-type CD4 cells. Tyk2 can be viewed as a dual-function Jak, mediating both pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokine responses. Tyk2 is also an important regulator of lymphoid tumor surveillance.|
|Immunogen||Purified recombinant fragment of Tyk2 expressed in E. Coli.|
|Formulation||Ascitic fluid containing 0.03% sodium azide.|
|Other Names||Non-receptor tyrosine-protein kinase TYK2, 18.104.22.168, TYK2|
|Dilution||WB~~1/500 - 1/2000|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Tyk2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Probably involved in intracellular signal transduction by being involved in the initiation of type I IFN signaling. Phosphorylates the interferon-alpha/beta receptor alpha chain.|
|Tissue Location||Observed in all cell lines analyzed. Expressed in a variety of lymphoid and non-lymphoid cell lines|
