Titration of the NIK antibody may be required due to differences in protocols and secondary/substrate sensitivity.
This NIK antibodyis to be used only for research purposes and not for diagnostics..
HGK/NIK, a member of the STE20 subfamily of Ser/Thr protein kinases, may play a role in the response to environmental stress and cytokines such as TNF-alpha. It appears to act upstream of the JUN N-terminal pathway. This protein is thought to interact with the SH3 domain of the adapter proteins Nck. HGK/NIK binds, via its CNH regulatory domain, to the N-terminal region of SPG3A. Expression appears to be ubiquitous, expressed in all tissue types examined. Isoform 5 appears to be more abundant in the brain, and isoform 4 is predominant in the liver, skeletal muscle and placenta.
A portion of amino acids 618-649 from the human protein was used as the immunogen for this NIK antibody.
Aliquot the NIK antibody and store frozen at -20 deg. Celcius or lower. Cycles of freezing and thawing can denaturate the peptide chains of the antibodies and reduce their sensitivity and/or change their affinity. Prepare aliqotes in such a manner so that freeze-thaw cycles are minimized.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by NJS poly they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
