Gene Description
Adaptor-related protein complex 2 (AP-2 complexes) functions during receptor-mediated endocytosis to trigger clathrin assembly, interact with membrane-bound receptors, and recruit encodytic accessory factors. This gene encodes a member of the SNF1 subfamily of Ser/Thr protein kinases. The protein interacts with and phosphorylates a subunit of the AP-2 complex, which promotes binding of AP-2 to sorting signals found in membrane-bound receptors and subsequent receptor endocytosis. Its kinase activity is stimulated by clathrin. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described, but their biological validity has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
Quality control
Sanger Sequencing
Storage
Store at -20鈩 upon receiving. Lysate can be diluted with 1脳 SDS sample buffer and will be stable at -20鈩 for 12 months. Minimize freeze-thaw cycles.
Parental Cell Line
HeLa
Reconstitution
To use as WB negative control, spin down briefly and resuspend in 100渭L 1脳 SDS sample buffer (2% SDS, 60 mM Tris-HCl pH 6.8, 10% Glycerol, 0.02% Bromophenol blue, 60 mM beta-mercaptoethanol). Boil the lysate for 3 - 5 minutes before loading it onto gel.
Components
1 vial of knockout cell lysate;
1 vial of parental cell lysate
