Description :Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody

Species :

Tag :

Expression System:

Sequence :

Specificity :Recognizes the TTBK2 protein

Cited Applications :ELISA, IHC

Cross Reactivity :Human

Host / Isotype / Clone# :Rabbit, IgG

Immunogen :TTBK2 antibody was raised against an 18 amino acid synthetic peptide near the carboxy terminus of human TTBK2

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 :Immunohistochemistry of TTBK2 in human placenta tissue with TTBK2 antibody at 5 ug/ml.

Scientific Background :TTBK2 or tau tubulin kinase 2 is a serine-threonine kinase that putatively phosphorylates tau and tubulin proteins. TTBK2 is a member of the casein kinase (CK1) group of eukaryotic protein kinases that is involved in tau phosphorylation and aggregation (1). Mutations in TTBK2 cause spinocerebellar ataxia type 11 (SCA11) (a neurodegenerative disease characterized by progressive ataxia and atrophy of the cerebellum and brainstem) (2).
