Technical Data
cdk 2(Cyclin-dependent Kinase 2)
Cyclin-dependent kinases (cdk) are the catalytic subunits of the cyclin/cdk complexes, which phosphorylate substrates on threonine/serine residues. Cdk2 interacts with cyclin D1, D3 and E, as well as cyclin A. Cyclin E/cdk2 kinase is active in G1- and S-phase of the cell cycle and is important for progression of cells from G1 to S. Cyclin A/cdk2 levels are maximal at the S/G2-phase transition and both are found associated with DNA in the initiation complex during replication. Rb is a substrate for cyclin E/cdk2 and cyclin A/cdk2 in vivo.

Suitable for use in Immunoprecipitation, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Immunoprecipitation: 10ul/mg; co-precipitates associated proteins
Western Blot: 1ug/ml Incubate fot 2 hours at RT.
Immunohistochemistry: 2-4ug/ml cryostat sections and paraffin embedded sections. For paraffin embedded sections, boil the sections in 1mM EDTA, pH 8, for 10-20 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 min.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
