BTK is a tyrosine-protein kinase that modulates signaling, growth, and differentiation in B-lymphocytes. BTK also mediates cytoskeletal rearrangements and associates with Pin1 to regulate the cell-cycle dependent expression of BTK. Additionally, BTK signaling cascades are involved in regulation of calcium fluxes and transcription. Genetic alterations in BTK1 have been linked to X-linked aγglobulinemia . Anti-BTK, N-Terminal antibody is specific for human BTK (75 kDa). In immunoblotting, staining of the BTK band is specifically inhibited by the immunizing peptide.
synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 11-26 of human BTK, conjugated to KLH via a C-terminal added cysteine residue. This sequence differs from the human Tec tyrosine kinase by 2 amino acids.
The immunogen sequence is conserved in mouse, rat and chicken.
Anti-BTK, N-Terminal antibody is suitable for use in western blot (1-2 μg/mL using lysates of Ramos (Human Burkitt lymphoma) cell line) and microarray.
Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.
