Biological Significance: ExpandCollapse

The neuronal protein kinase, Cdk5 has been implicated in a vast array of normal neuronal functions including regulation of neurotransmitter synthesis (Kansy J et al., 2004), the presynaptic vesicle cycle (Nguyen, C. & Bibb, JA 2003), neurotransmitter receptor trafficking and dopamine neurotransmission (Bibb, JA et al. 1999). At the same time Cdk5 has been implicated in a plethora of neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, epilepsy, schizophrenia, and drug addiction. Detection of Cdk5 in normal samples as well as tissue undergoing neurodegeneration may advance studies in these areas. Moreover, this antibody may allow more accurate postmortem evaluations of Cdk5 protein expression, and thus serve as a valuable new reagent for neuropathology.
