Lane 1: Wild-type HAP1 whole cell lysate (20 µg)
Lane 2: GSK3 alpha knockout HAP1 whole cell lysate (20 µg)
Lane 3: HeLa whole cell lysate (20 µg)
Lane 4: HepG2 whole cell lysate (20 µg)
Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab40870 observed at 51 kDa. Red - loading control, ab8245, observed at 37 kDa.
ab40870 was shown to specifically react with GSK3 alpha in wild-type HAP1 cells. No band was observed when GSK3 alpha knockout samples were examined. Wild-type and GSK3 alpha knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab40870 and ab8245 (Mouse anti-GAPDH loading control) were incubated overnight at 4°C at a 1/5000 dilution and 1/10,000 dilution respectively. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preabsorbed ab216773 and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preabsorbed ab216776 secondary antibodies at 1/10,000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.
Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence analysis of HeLa (human cervix adenocarcinoma epithelial cell) cells labeling GSK3 alpha with purified ab40870 at 1/200 dilution (10 µg/mL). Cells were fixed in 100% Methanol. Goat anti rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488, ab150077) was used as the secondary antibody at 1/1000 (2 µg/mL) dilution. DAPI (blue) was used as nuclear counterstain.
