- CITATIONS: 4
|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||142101 Da|
|Antigen Region||618-649 aa|
|Other Names||Mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase kinase 4, HPK/GCK-like kinase HGK, MAPK/ERK kinase kinase kinase 4, MEK kinase kinase 4, MEKKK 4, Nck-interacting kinase, MAP4K4, HGK, KIAA0687, NIK|
|Target/Specificity||This NIK antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 618-649 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human NIK.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||NIK Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||HGK, KIAA0687, NIK|
|Function||Serine/threonine kinase that may play a role in the response to environmental stress and cytokines such as TNF-alpha. Appears to act upstream of the JUN N-terminal pathway. Phosphorylates SMAD1 on Thr-322.|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed. Isoform 5 is abundant in the brain. Isoform 4 is predominant in the liver, skeletal muscle and placenta.|
Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
HGK, a member of the STE20 subfamily of Ser/Thr protein kinases, may play a role in the response to environmental stress and cytokines such as TNF-alpha. It appears to act upstream of the JUN N-terminal pathway. This protein is thought to interact with the SH3 domain of the adapter proteins Nck. HGK binds, via its CNH regulatory domain, to the N-terminal region of SPG3A. Expression appears to be ubiquitous, expressed in all tissue types examined. Isoform 5 appears to be more abundant in the brain, and isoform 4 is predominant in the liver, skeletal muscle and placenta.
