PKGs are cyclic GMP-dependent protein kinases (also designed cGKs) that are classified into two types, PKGI and PKGII. Studies have shown that cGKs and cyclic AMP-dependent kinases (cAKs) are highly homologous protein kinase families with similar substrate specificities. Phosphorylation of cellular proteins by both families of kinases leads to alterations in calcium mobilization, protein phosphatase activity, ion channel function, gene transcription, smooth muscle contractility and platelet aggregation. However, recent studies using mice deficient in PKGs have shown that cGMP kinases regulate very specifically distinct pathways which are separate from those used by cyclic AMP kinases.

Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
The antibody can be used for Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes 75 and 85 kDa PKG, corresponding to the molecular mass of two PKG isoforms.
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.
