Human Brk Baculovirus-Insect cells Overexpression Lysate: Product Information
This Human Brk overexpression lysate was created in Baculovirus-Insect cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of Brk protein (Cat: 10682-H09B) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
A DNA sequence encoding the full length of human PTK6 (NP_005966.1) (Met 1-Thr 451) was fused with the GST tag at the N-terminus.
The recombinant human GST/PTK6 chimera consists of 676 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 78 kDa. It migrates as an approximately 70 kDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Human Brk Baculovirus-Insect cells Overexpression Lysate: Usage Guide
Cell lysate was prepared by homogenization of the over-expressed cells in ice-cold modified RIPA Lysis Buffer with cocktail of protease inhibitors (Sigma). Cell debris was removed by centrifugation. Protein concentration was determined by Bradford assay (Bio-Rad protein assay, Microplate Standard assay). The cell lysate was boiled for 5 min in 1 x SDS loading buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl pH 6.8, 12.5% glycerol, 1% sodium dodecylsulfate, 0.01% bromophenol blue) containing 5% b-mercaptoethanol, and lyophilized.
1. Centrifuge the tube for a few seconds and ensure the pellet at the bottom of the tube.
2. Re-dissolve the pellet using 200μL pure water and boil for 2-5 min.
1 X Sample Buffer (1 X modified RIPA buffer+1 X SDS loading buffer).
Stability & Storage
Store at 4℃ for up to twelve months from date of receipt. After re-dissolution, aliquot and store at -80℃ for up to twelve months. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Western Blot (WB) Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Brk Background Information
Tyrosine kinase (PTKs) is a protein that carry out tyrosine phosphorylation, which play a fundamental role in cell proliferation, survival, adhesion, and motility and have also been demenstrated to mediate malignant cell transformation. Overexpression of this protein in mammary epithelial cells leads to sensitization of the cells to epidermal growth factor and results in a partially transformed phenotype. Two classes of PTKs are present in cells: the transmembrane receptor PTKs and the non-receptor PTKs. Tyrosine kinase(PTKs)-6/ BRK is a cytoplasmic non-receptor protein kinase which may function as an intracellular signal transducer in epithelial tissues. Tyrosine kinase(PTKs)-6/ BRK has been shown to undergo autophosphorylation. It has been found that the constitutive expression of the tyrosine kinase(PTKs)-6/ BRK is in a large proportion of cutaneous T-cell lymphomas and other transformed T- and B-cell populations. State BRK expression was also induced in normal T-cells. In clinical, the cytoplasmic tyrosine kinase PTK6 (BRK) shows elevated expression in approximately two-thirds of primary breast tumours, and is implicated in EGF receptor-dependent signalling and epithelial tumorigenesis.
