Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
LOK, Lymphocyte Oriented Kinase, STK10, STK-10, Serine/Threonine Kinase 10
The phosphorylation and dephosphorylation of proteins on serine and threonine residues is an essential means of regulating a broad range of cellular functions in eukaryotes, including cell division, homeostasis and apoptosis. A group of proteins that are intimately involved in this process are the serine/threonine (Ser/Thr) protein kinases. LOK (Lymphocyte-oriented kinase), also known as STK10 (serine/threonine kinase 10), is a 968 amino acid protein that contains one protein kinase domain and belongs to the Ser/Thr protein kinase family. Expressed in lymphoid organs, LOK functions to catalyze the ATP-dependent phosphorylation of target proteins, such as MBP (myelin basic protein) and Histone H2A, thereby playing a role in signaling pathways throughout the cell.
Clonality of antibody:

Synthetic peptide derived from human LOK
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µl affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 1% BSA and 0.02% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blot, Immunoprecipitation
Western blotting (1:500 – 1:2000) and Immunoprecipitation. However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes the LOK of human and mouse origins. Reactivity to other species has not been tested.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
