Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

Reversible protein phosphorylation is critical for progression through the cell cycle and mitosis. In Aspergillus nidulans, the nima gene (never in mitosis) encodes a protein kinase that is essential for mitosis. Three human genes (nek1, 2, and 3 [Nima-related kinase]) with significant homology to the A. nidulans nima have been reported. The nek2 gene encodes a protein of 445 amino acids and, like its fungal homolog, its expression is regulated throughout the cell cycle. In Hela cells, Nek2 activity and expression are low during M and G1 phases of the cell cycle. However, both parameters increase during S phase and mitosis. In addition, Nek2 phosphorylates protein substrates exclusively at serine and threonine residues. Thus, like its fungal homolog, Nek2 may be a crucial element in controlling the cell's entry into S phase and mitosis.

This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis. Other applications were tested at BD Biosciences Pharmingen during antibody development only or reported in the literature.

Format Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
