|W||H M R Mk||Endogenous||60||Rabbit|
Reactivity Key: H=Human M=Mouse R=Rat Mk=Monkey
Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot. Species enclosed in parentheses are predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology.
Specificity / Sensitivity
Phospho-PKM2 (Tyr105) Antibody detects endogenous levels of PKM2 protein only when phosphorylated at Tyr105. This antibody may slightly cross react with PKM1 phosphorylated at the equivalent site.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic phosphopeptide corresponding to the sequence surrounding Tyr105 of human PKM2 protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
GST-PKM2 wild-type or the Tyr105Phe mutant was incubated in an in vitro kinase assay in the presence or absence of active FGFR1. Western blot analysis was performed using Phospho-PKM2 (Tyr105) Antibody and a phospho-Tyr antibody. The data demonstrate the specificity of the Phospho-PKM2 (Tyr105) Antibody and that the Tyr105Phe mutation abolishes PKM2 phosphorylation at Tyr105 by FGFR1 in vitro. (Adapted from Hitosugi, T. et al., 2009).
Western blot analysis of NCI-H1299 cells using Phospho-PKM2 (Tyr105) Antibody, total PKM2 Antibody #3198, total FGFR1 antibody, phospho-Tyr antibody, and β-actin antibody. The data demonstrate that inhibition of FGFR1 by TKI258 treatment in NCI-H1299 cells results in decreased Tyr105 phosphorylation of endogenous PKM2. (Adapted from Hitosugi, T. et al., 2009).

Pyruvate kinase, a glycolytic enzyme, catalyses the conversion of phosphoenolpyruvate to pyruvate. In mammals, the M1 isoform (PKM1) is expressed in most adult tissues (1). The M2 isoform (PKM2), an alternatively-spliced variant of M1, is expressed during embryonic development (1). Studies found that cancer cells exclusively express PKM2 (1-3). PKM2 is shown to be essential for aerobic glycolysis in tumors (Warburg effect) (1). When the M2 isoform is switched to the M1 isoform, aerobic glycolysis is reduced and oxidative phosphorylation is increased in cancer cells (1). These cells also show decreased tumorigenicity in mouse xenografts (1). Recent studies show that the oncogenic forms of FGFR1 directly phosphorylate Tyr105 of PKM2 and thereby inhibit the formation of active tetrameric PKM2 (4). A PKM2 mutant found in cancer cells, in which Tyr105 is replaced by phenylalanine, leads to reduced cell proliferation in hypoxia and tumor growth in xenografts in nude mice (4). These findings suggest that the phosphorylation at Tyr105 is a critical switch for the metabolism in cancer cells that promotes tumor growth (4).
Phosphorylation of PKM2 on Tyr105 was identified at Cell Signaling Technology (CST) using PhosphoScan®, CST's LC-MS/MS platform for phosphorylation site discovery.
