Product Description

The GSK-3 Antibody Sampler Kit contains primary and secondary antibodies to perform four Western blots with each antibody.

Specificity / Sensitivity

Each antibody in the GSK3 Antibody Sampler Kit recognizes only its specific target and does not cross-react with other family members. Phospho-GSK-3ß (Ser9) (D85E12) XP® Rabbit mAb reacts with denatured components of bovine serum, including BSA.

Source / Purification

Monoclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues around Ser9 of human GSK-3ß, residues around Ser21 of human GSK-3α, or to the sequence of human GSK-3α protein or by immunizing animals with recombinant protein specific to the carboxy terminus of human GSK-3ß protein.

Glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3) was initially identified as an enzyme that regulates glycogen synthesis in response to insulin (1). GSK-3 is a ubiquitously expressed serine/threonine protein kinase that phosphorylates and inactivates glycogen synthase. GSK-3 is a critical downstream element of the PI3K/Akt cell survival pathway whose activity can be inhibited by Akt-mediated phosphorylation at Ser21 of GSK-3α and Ser9 of GSK-3β (2,3). GSK-3 has been implicated in the regulation of cell fate in Dictyostelium and is a component of the Wnt signaling pathway required for Drosophila, Xenopus, and mammalian development (4). GSK-3 has been shown to regulate cyclin D1 proteolysis and subcellular localization (5).
