Anti-GSK3 beta (phospho Y216) antibody (ab75745)

Overview

  • Product nameAnti-GSK3 beta (phospho Y216) antibody
    See all GSK3 beta primary antibodies
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to GSK3 beta (phospho Y216)
  • Specificityab75745 detects endogenous levels of GSK3 beta only when phosphorylated at tyrosine 216. This antibody can also cross-react with GSK3 alpha subunit due to the consistent antigen-sequence of "GEPNVSYICSRYY".
  • Tested applicationsSuitable for: IHC-Fr, ICC/IF, WB, IHC-Pmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Mouse, Rat, Human
  • Immunogen

    Synthetic phosphopeptide derived from human GSK3 beta around the phosphorylation site of tyrosine 216 (V-S-YP-I-C).

  • Positive control
    • Human breast carcinoma tissue; 293 cell extracts, untreated or treated with insulin (40 µM, 30 min).

Target

  • FunctionParticipates in the Wnt signaling pathway. Implicated in the hormonal control of several regulatory proteins including glycogen synthase, MYB and the transcription factor JUN. Phosphorylates JUN at sites proximal to its DNA-binding domain, thereby reducing its affinity for DNA. Phosphorylates MUC1 in breast cancer cells, and decreases the interaction of MUC1 with CTNNB1/beta-catenin. Phosphorylates CTNNB1/beta-catenin. Phosphorylates SNAI1. Plays an important role in ERBB2-dependent stabilization of microtubules at the cell cortex. Prevents the phosphorylation of APC and CLASP2, allowing its association with the cell membrane. In turn, membrane-bound APC allows the localization of MACF1 to the cell membrane, which is required for microtubule capture and stabilization. Phosphorylates MACF1 and this phosphorylation inhibits the binding of MACF1 to microtubules which is critical for its role in bulge stem cell migration and skin wound repair.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in testis, thymus, prostate and ovary and weakly expressed in lung, brain and kidney.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CMGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family. GSK-3 subfamily.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Phosphorylated by AKT1 and ILK1. Activated by phosphorylation at Tyr-216.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Nucleus. Cell membrane. The phosphorylated form shows localization to cytoplasm and cell membrane. The MEMO1-RHOA-DIAPH1 signaling pathway controls localization of the phosophorylated form to the cell membrane.

    Sections were cut sagittally and permeabilized in 1% Triton X-100 in PBS for 1 hour at ambient temperature. After washing with H2O2 in methanol, sections were incubated sequentially with 0.5% donkey serum, primary antibody and a biotin-labeled donkey secondary antibody in TBS + 2% BSA + 0.02% Tween 20. The signal was visualized with DAB and counterstained with hematoxylin.

At Abcam we generally do not recommend re-use of the diluted antibody as signal quality may decrease. However if you were to do this, use of 0.05% sodium azide should be enough to keep any bacterial growth down. When using sodium azide in this solution...
