Product Description

The PathScan® Multiplex Western Detection Cocktail offers a unique method to assay the inhibition of multiple proteins on one membrane without stripping and reprobing. This method saves the user valuable time while increasing accuracy and minimizing reagent waste. The Bcr/Abl Activity Assay allows the user to simultaneously detect the inhibition of phosphorylation of c-Abl, Stat5 and CrkL proteins in response to STI-571. The cocktail also includes Rab11 antibody to control protein loading.

B. Protein Blotting

A general protocol for sample preparation.

  1. Treat cells by adding fresh media containing regulator for desired time.
  2. Aspirate media from cultures; wash cells with 1X PBS; aspirate.
  3. Lyse cells by adding 1X SDS sample buffer (100 µl per well of 6-well plate or 500 µl for a 10 cm diameter plate). Immediately scrape the cells off the plate and transfer the extract to a microcentrifuge tube. Keep on ice.
  4. Sonicate for 10–15 sec to complete cell lysis and shear DNA (to reduce sample viscosity).
  5. Heat a 20 µl sample to 95–100°C for 5 min; cool on ice.
  6. Microcentrifuge for 5 min.
  7. Load 20 µl onto SDS-PAGE gel (10 cm x 10 cm).

    NOTE: Loading of prestained molecular weight markers (#59329, 10 µl/lane) to verify electrotransfer and biotinylated protein ladder (#7727, 10 µl/lane) to determine molecular weights are recommended.

  8. Electrotransfer to nitrocellulose membrane (#12369).

C. Membrane Blocking and Antibody Incubations

NOTE: Volumes are for 10 cm x 10 cm (100 cm2) of membrane; for different sized membranes, adjust volumes accordingly.

I. Membrane Blocking

  1. (Optional) After transfer, wash nitrocellulose membrane with 25 ml TBS for 5 min at room temperature.
  2. Incubate membrane in 25 ml of blocking buffer for 1 hr at room temperature.
  3. Wash three times for 5 min each with 15 ml of TBST.

II. Primary Antibody Incubation

  1. Incubate membrane and primary antibody (at the appropriate dilution and diluent as recommended in the product webpage) in 10 ml primary antibody dilution buffer with gentle agitation overnight at 4°C.
  2. Wash three times for 5 min each with 15 ml of TBST.
  3. Incubate membrane with Anti-rabbit IgG, HRP-linked Antibody (#7074 at 1:2000) and anti-biotin, HRP-linked Antibody (#7075 at 1:1000–1:3000) to detect biotinylated protein markers in 10 ml of blocking buffer with gentle agitation for 1 hr at room temperature.
  4. Wash three times for 5 min each with 15 ml of TBST.
  5. Proceed with detection (Section D).

D. Detection of Proteins

Directions for Use:

  1. Wash membrane-bound HRP (antibody conjugate) three times for 5 minutes in TBST.
  2. Prepare 1X SignalFire™ ECL Reagent (#6883) by diluting one part 2X Reagent A and one part 2X Reagent B (e.g. for 10 ml, add 5 ml Reagent A and 5 ml Reagent B). Mix well.
  3. Incubate substrate with membrane for 1 minute, remove excess solution (membrane remains wet), wrap in plastic and expose to X-ray film.

* Avoid repeated exposure to skin.

Protocol Id: 10

Specificity / Sensitivity

Each phospho-antibody in this cocktail recognizes endogenous levels of only the phosphorylated form of its specific target. The Rab11 Antibody detects endogenous levels of its target protein independent of phosphorylation and is provided to control for protein loading.

Species Reactivity:

Human

Source / Purification

Antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with synthetic peptides. Polyclonal antibodies are purfied by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.

Background

STI-571 (also known as Imatinib mesylate) is a tyrosine kinase (TK) inhibitor that is a relatively specific ATP-binding site antagonist of Bcr-Abl, PDGF receptor and c-Kit TKs (1-3). Results are encouraging in CML clinical trials, and STI-571 has become a paradigm for targeted cancer therapeutics (4-6). Signal transduction through phospho-tyrosine pathways has been studied extensively, and tyrosine phosphorylation has been linked to multiple cell growth and differentiation pathways (7-9). Because the observed leukemic state of CML is dependent on the intact Bcr-Abl tyrosine kinase activity, extensive work has been done to identify substrates of Bcr-Abl and thus possible mechanisms leading to a myeloid expansion. Many groups have characterized prominent tyrosine-phosphorylated protein substrates in both CML blasts and Bcr-Abl-expressing cell lines, including SHIP, c-cbl, Dok, SHC and CrkL (10-15). In addition, key signal transduction pathways involving PI3 kinase, Ras, Myc and Stat5 are also activated in a Bcr-Abl kinase-dependent manner (16).
