Data Examples

Western Blot Detection  of Human Chk2 by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human Chk2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line untreated (-) or treated (+) with 1 μM Camptothecin (CPT) for 5 hours. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Rabbit Anti-Human Phospho-Chk2 (T68) Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1626) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rabbit IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF008). A specific band was detected for Chk2 at approximately 68 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Phospho-Chk2 (T68) in HeLa Human Cell Line. Chk2phosphorylated at T68 was detected in immersion fixed HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line unstimulated (lower panel) or stimulated with 1 μM Camptothecin (upper panel) using Rabbit Anti-Human Phospho-Chk2 (T68) Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1626) at 2 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Rabbit IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL004) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to nuclei (upper panel). View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.

Background: Chk2

Serine/threonine-protein kinase Chk2 (CHEK2) is a 65 kDa member of Serine/threonine-protein kinase family of proteins. Chk2 regulates cell cycle checkpoint arrest through phosphorylation of CDC25A, CDC25B and CDC25C. Inhibition of CDC25 phosphatase activity leads to increased inhibitory tyrosine phosphorylation of CDK-cyclin complexes and blocks cell cycle progression. Chk2 is required for checkpoint-mediated cell cycle arrest, activation of DNA repair and apoptosis in response to the presence of DNA double-strand breaks.Existence of multiple splice variants of Chk2 is predicted. Human Chk2 shares 86% aa sequence identity with mouse Chk2.
