Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  3. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  4. 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.

6/CRIK

Citron was identified by its interactions with activated Rho and Rac. It contains a zinc finger (ZF) region, a pleckstrin homology (PH) domain, a citron/MRCK/Gek (CMG) domain, and a coiled-coil domain with a Rho-Rac binding region (RRB). Citron binds to PSD-95 via its C-terminal tSXV motif and the PDZ domain on PSD-95. This association occurs at post synaptic densities where citron-PSD-95 may provide a specific link between the Rho signaling cascade and the synaptic NMDA receptor complex. Citron Rho-interacting kinase (CRIK) and CRIK short kinase (CRIK-SK) are Ser/Thr kinase isoforms of the myotonic dystrophy kinase family. CRIK contains full-length citron, with an N-terminal kinase domain. CRIK-SK is a splice variant that contains only the kinase domain. CRIK co-localizes with actin in keratinocytes and co-expression of CRIK and Rho increases CRIK kinase activity two-fold. In addition, CRIK mutants cause abnormal contraction during cytokinesis. CRIK is expressed highest in testis, but is also present in brain, spleen, lung, and kidney. Thus, CRIK is a Ser/Thr kinase that functions downstream of Rho during events such as cytokinesis and synaptic transmission.

Purified
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.
