Western blot analysis of extracts from HeLa cells serum-starved for 48 hours or serum-treated for 30 minutes, using Phospho-Fox01 (Thr24)/Fox03a (Thr32) Antibody #9464 (left) or the same antibody preincubated with Phospho-Fox01 (Thr24)/Fox03a (Thr32) Blocking Peptide.
For Western immunoblotting, add 10 µl of antibody and 10 µl of blocking peptide to 10 ml of antibody dilution buffer, and incubate at room temperature for one hour before allowing to react with the blot.
Supplied in 20 mM potassium phosphate (pH 7.0), 50 mM NaCl, 0.1 mM EDTA, 1 mg/ml BSA and 5% glycerol. Store at –20°C.
This peptide can used to specifically block Phospho-Fox01 (Thr24)/Fox03a (Thr32) Antibody #9464 reactivity.
The quality of the peptide was evaluated by reversed-phase HPLC and by mass spectrometry. The peptide has been tested to block Phospho-Fox01 (Thr24)/Fox03a (Thr32) Antibody #9464 signal completely in Western blotting.
The Forkhead family of transcription factors is involved in tumorigenesis of rhabdomyosarcoma and acute leukemias (1-3). Within the family, three members (FoxO1, FoxO4, and FoxO3a) have sequence similarity to the nematode orthologue DAF-16, which mediates signaling via a pathway involving IGFR1, PI3K, and Akt (4-6). Active forkhead members act as tumor suppressors by promoting cell cycle arrest and apoptosis. Increased expression of any FoxO member results in the activation of the cell cycle inhibitor p27 Kip1. Forkhead transcription factors also play a part in TGF-β-mediated upregulation of p21 Cip1, a process negatively regulated through PI3K (7). Increased proliferation results when forkhead transcription factors are inactivated through phosphorylation by Akt at Thr24, Ser256, and Ser319, which results in nuclear export and inhibition of transcription factor activity (8). Forkhead transcription factors can also be inhibited by the deacetylase sirtuin (SirT1) (9).
