Description :Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody
Specificity :Recognizes the BRSK1protein
Cited Applications :WB, ELISA, IF, IHC
Cross Reactivity :Human and Mouse
Host / Isotype / Clone# :Rabbit, IgG
Immunogen :BRSK2 antibody was raised against a 23 amino acid synthetic peptide from near the carboxy terminus of human BRSK2.
Purification :Affinity chromatography
Stability :Store at 4oC (add 0.1% NaN3) for several months, and at -20oC for longer periods. For optimal storage, aliquot target into smaller quantities after centrifugation and store at recommended temperature. For most favorable performance, avoid repeated handling and multiple freeze/thaw cycles.
Sample Data :Western blot analysis of BRSK2 in human brain tissue lysate with BRSK2 antibody at (A) 0.5, (B) 1 and (C) 2 ug/ml.
Sample Data :Immunohistochemistry of BRSK2 in human brain tissue with BRSK2 antibody at 5 ug/ml.
Scientific Background :BRSK2 is a brain-selective serine/threonine kinase 2 that is mainly expressed in the brain, with weaker expression in testis and pancreas. BRSK2 expressed in insect cells specifically phosphorylates WEE1A, CDC25C and CDC25B in an in vitro assay. DNA damage induced by ultraviolet (UV) irradiation or methyl methane sulfonate, but not by ionizing radiation, enhanced endogenous BRSK2 kinase activity in a caffeine-sensitive manner and caused translocation of BRSK2 from the cytoplasm to the nucleus (1). Overexpression of BRSK2 induces G2/M arrest in HeLa cells while small interfering RNA against BRSK2 partly abrogated UV-induced G2/M arrest. Mammalian BRSK2 kinases are required for neuronal polarization (2).
