Immunogen The antiserum was produced against synthesized phosphopeptide derived from human LIMK2 around the phosphorylation site of threonine 505 (R-Y-TP-V-V).
Specificity This antibody detects endogenous levels of LIMK2 only when phosphorylated at Threonine 505.
Purification Affinity Chromatography using epitope-specific phosphopeptide. The antibody against non-phosphopeptide was removed by chromatography using non-phosphopeptide corresponding to the phosphorylation site.
Alternative Name LIMK2
Background LIM kinases (LIM kinase 1 and LIM kinase 2) are serine/threonine kinases that have two zinc finger motifs, known as LIM motifs in their N terminal regulatory domain. LIM kinases are involved in actin cytoskeleton regulation through Rho family GTPases and downstream kinases PAKs and ROCK. PAK1 and ROCK phosphorylate LIM kinase 1 and LIM kinase 2, which increases the activity of the kinases. Activated LIM kinases inhibit the actin depolymerization activity of cofilin by phosphorylation at the N terminus of Cofilin.
Alternate names: EC=, LIM domain kinase 2, LIMK-2, LIMK2
