Immunofluorescent analysis of PKM1/2 (red) in HEK293T cells. Cells fixed with 4% formaldehyde were permeabilized and blocked with 1X PBS containing 5% BSA and 0.3% Triton X-100 for 1 hour at room temperature. Cells were probed with a PKM1/2 monoclonal antibody (Product # MA5-14815) at a dilution of 1:100 overnight at 4°C in 1X PBS containing 1% BSA and 0.3% Triton X-100, washed with 1X PBS, and incubated with a fluorophore-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG secondary antibody at a dilution of 1:200 for 1 hour at room temperature. Nuclei (blue) were stained with DAPI. Images were taken on a Leica DM1000 microscope at 40X magnification. Data courtesy of the Innovators Program.

This gene encodes a protein involved in glycolysis. The encoded protein is a pyruvate kinase that catalyzes the transfer of a phosphoryl group from phosphoenolpyruvate to ADP, generating ATP and pyruvate. This protein has been shown to interact with thyroid hormone and may mediate cellular metabolic effects induced by thyroid hormones. This protein has been found to bind Opa protein, a bacterial outer membrane protein involved in gonococcal adherence to and invasion of human cells, suggesting a role of this protein in bacterial pathogenesis. Three alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding two distinct isoforms have been reported.
