Detection of Human RLK/TXK by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of Jurkat human acute T cell leukemia cell line and human primary differentiated Th2 cells. PVDF Membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Human RLK/TXK Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6520) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). Specific bands were detected for RLK/TXK at approximately 58 and 65 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

RLK (resting lymphocyte kinase), also called TXK (T cell-expressed kinase) or PTK4, is a protein tyrosine kinase of the TEK family. It is expressed in T cells and some myeloid cells, especially in Th1 cells in inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and Behcet’s disease. Upon TCR stimulation, it translocates to the nucleus and induces IFN-gamma production. An alternate start site creates a resident nuclear 55 kDa form in addition to the larger (~58 kDa) form that is cytoplasmic or targeted to the plasma membrane via palmitoylation of a cysteine string motif. The region used as an immunogen is common to both forms and shares 79% and 81% amino acid identity with mouse and rat RLK, respectively.
