Detection of Human Tankyrase 1 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of MCF‑7 human breast cancer cell line. Gels were loaded with 20 µg of cytoplasmic (Cyto) and 10 µg of nuclear (Nuc) extracts. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human Tankyrase 1 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF7116) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for Tankyrase 1 at approximately 170 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: Tankyrase 1
TNKS (Tankyrase; also TRF1-interacting, ANKYrin-Related ADP-ribose polymerase and TNKS1, TANK1 and PARP5A) is a 165-170 kDa member of the PARP family of proteins. It is ubiquitously expressed and participates in at least two critical cellular functions. First, via ribosylation activity, it inhibits TRF1, a regulator of telomere length. This promotes chromosomal lengthening. Second, it activates the Wnt signaling pathway by promoting Axin-1 and -2 degradation, resulting in beta -catenin activation. Human TNKS is 1327 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains polyHis, Pro and Ser regions (aa 9-134), 15 ankyrin repeats (aa 215-934), one SAM motif (aa 1030-1089) and a PARP catalytic domain (aa 1112-1317). There are three potential splice variants. One shows a three aa substitution for aa 640-1327, another contains a 43 aa substitution for aa 1-327, while a third possesses a 20 aa substitution for aa 300-327. Over aa 943-1039, human TNKS shares 97% aa identity with mouse TNKS.
