Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
JIK, JNK/SAPK-Inhibitory Kinase, TAOK3, TAO Kinase 3, DPK, Dendritic cell derived protein kinase, MAP3K18
JNK/SAPK-inhibitory kinase (JIK) is a serine/threonine kinase that belongs to the STE20 kinase family. The kinase domain of JIK is similar to the GCK-like subfamily of STE20 kinases, while its non-catalytic domain is similar to a Caenorhabditis elegans putative serine/threonine kinase, SULU. JIK inhibits c-Jun NH2-terminal kinase/stress-activated protein kinase (JNK/SAPK), which is activated by many types of cellular stresses and extracellular signals. JNK/SAPK regulates cell survival, apoptosis and proliferation in mouse development. JIK is negatively regulated by epidermal growth factor (EGF) and tyrosine kinase receptors. In unstimulated human T cells, JIK is cytoplasmic, whereas in the continuously dividing human T cells of Jurkat lymphoma, JIK is nuclear.

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 – 1:2500) and Immunoprecipitation. However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes the JIK/TAOK3 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.
