|Baculovirus-Insect Cell lysate that Human CDK5 transfected / overexpressed for Western blot (WB) positive control. The whole cell lysate is provided in 1X Sample Buffer (1X modified RIPA buffer+1X SDS loading buffer).|
|A DNA sequence encoding the human CDK5 isoform 1 (NP_004926.1) (Met 1-Pro 292) was fused with the GST tag at the N-terminus.|
|The recombinant human CDK5/GST chimera consists of 516 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 59.6 kDa as estimated in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.|
|Cell lysate was prepared by homogenization in ice-cold modified RIPA Lysis Buffer with cocktail of protease inhibitors (Sigma). Cell debris was removed by centrifugation. Protein concentration was determined by Bradford assay (Bio-Rad protein assay, Microplate Standard assay). The cell lysate was boiled for 5 min in 1 x SDS loading buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl pH 6.8, 12.5% glycerol, 1% sodium dodecylsulfate, 0.01% bromophenol blue) containing 5% b-mercaptoethanol, and lyophilized.|
|Modified RIPA Lysis Buffer: 50 mM Tris-HCl pH 7.4, 150 mM NaCl, 1mM EDTA, 1% Triton X-100, 0.1% SDS, 1% Sodium deoxycholate, 1mM PMSF.|
|12.5% SDS-PAGE Stained with Coomassie Blue after protein purification.|
|Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt.|
|1. Centrifuge the tube for a few seconds and ensure the pellet at the bottom of the tube. 2. Re-dissolve the pellet using 200μL pure water and boil for 2-5 min. 3. Store the lyophilized cell lysate at 4℃. After re-dissolution, recommend to aliquot it into smaller quantities and store at -80℃.|
|1 X Sample Buffer (1 X modified RIPA buffer+1 X SDS loading buffer).|
|Store at 4℃. After re-dissolution, aliquot and store at -80℃.|
|Western blot (WB): Use at an assay dependent dilution.|
Other Applications: Not tested.
Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Cell division protein kinase 5, also known as Cyclin-dependent kinase 5, Serine/threonine-protein kinase PSSALRE, Tau protein kinase II catalytic subunit, TPKII catalytic subunit and CDK5, is a cytoplasm protein which belongs to the protein kinase superfamily, CMGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family and CDC2 / CDKX subfamily. Cyclin-dependent kinases (Cdks) are a family of proline-directed Ser/Thr kinases known for their role in the control of cell cycle progression. In 1992, this family was joined by CDK5, which is an atypical member in that it uses its own activators and is multifunctional, playing important regulatory roles in multiple cellular functions. CDK5, unlike other Cdks, is not regulated by cyclins, and its activity is primarily detected in postmitotic neurons in developing and adult nervous systems. CDK5 is activated by association with a neuron-specific activator, p35 or its isoform p39. CDK5 is probably involved in the control of the cell cycle. It interacts with D1 and D3-type G1 cyclins. CDK5 can phosphorylate histone H1, tau, MAP2 and NF-H and NF-M. It also interacts with p35 which activates the kinase. CDK5 plays important roles in various neuronal activities, including neuronal migration, synaptic activity, and neuronal cell death.
