Description :Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody
Specificity :Recognizes the DCAMKL1 protein
Cited Applications :WB, ELISA, IF, IHC
Cross Reactivity :Human, Mouse and Rat
Host / Isotype / Clone# :Rabbit, IgG
Immunogen :DCAMKL1 antibody was raised against a 14 amino acid synthetic peptide near the amino terminus of human DCAMKL1

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 DCAMKL1 in human brain tissue lysate with DCAMKL1 antibody at (A) 0.5 and (B) 1 ug/ml.
Sample Data :Immunohistochemistry of DCAMKL1 in rat brain tissue with DCAMKL1 antibody at 2.5 ug/ml.
Scientific Background :DCAMKL1 or doublecortin-like kinase 1 contains two N-terminal doublecortin domains (which bind microtubules and regulate microtubule polymerization), a C-terminal serine/threonine protein kinase domain (which shows substantial homology to Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase), and a serine/proline-rich domain in between the doublecortin and the protein kinase domains (which mediates multiple protein-protein interactions) (1). DCAMKL1 is a microtubule-associated kinase that can undergo autophosphorylation. DCAMKL1 has microtubule-polymerizing activity that is independent of its protein kinase activity (2). DCAMKL1 is involved in several different cellular processes, including neuronal migration, retrograde transport, neuronal apoptosis and neurogenesis.
