TESK2 or testis-specific kinase 2 is a serine/threonine protein kinase that contains an N-terminal protein kinase domain and belongs to the TESK subgroup of the LIMK/TESK family of protein kinases. The kinase domain of TESK2 is structurally similar to the kinase domain of testis-specific protein kinase-1 and the LIM motif-containing protein kinases (LIMKs). TESK2 is predominantly expressed in testis and prostate and plays an important role in spermatogenesis (1). TESK2 phosphorylates cofilin specifically at Ser-3 and induces formation of actin stress fibers and focal adhesions (2).

TESK2 siRNAs are designed to specifically knock-down human TESK2 expression.
Each siRNA duplex is supplied as 2.5nmol per tube (for example 6 x 2.5nmol = 3 x 5nmol per duplex). Briefly centrifuge one tube per duplex (maximum RCF 4,000g) to collect lyophilized siRNA at the bottom of the tube. Resuspend each 2.5nmol tube in 50 ul of DEPC-treated water (included in kit), which results in a 1x stock solution (50 uM). Gently pipet the solution 3-5 times to mix and avoid the introduction of bubbles. Optional: aliquot 1x stock solutions for storage.
Storage and Stability:
The lyophilized powder is stable for at least 4 weeks at room temperature. It is recommended that the lyophilized and resuspended siRNAs are stored at or below -20oC. After resuspension, siRNA stock solutions ≥2 uM can undergo up to 50 freeze-thaw cycles without significant degradation. For long-term storage, it is recommended that the siRNA is stored at -70oC. For most favorable performance, avoid repeated Handling and multiple freeze/thaw cycles.
