For western blots, incubate membrane with diluted primary antibody in 5% w/v nonfat dry milk, 1X TBS, 0.1% Tween® 20 at 4°C with gentle shaking, overnight.
NOTE: Please refer to primary antibody datasheet or product webpage for recommended antibody dilution.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalent grade water.
Load 20 µl onto SDS-PAGE gel (10 cm x 10 cm).
NOTE: Volumes are for 10 cm x 10 cm (100 cm2) of membrane; for different sized membranes, adjust volumes accordingly.
* Avoid repeated exposure to skin.

Reprobing of an existing membrane is a convenient means to immunoblot for multiple proteins independently when only a limited amount of sample is available. It should be noted that for the best possible results a fresh blot is always recommended. Reprobing can be a valuable method but with each reprobing of a blot there is potential for increased background signal. Additionally, it is recommended that you verify the removal of the first antibody complex prior to reprobing so that signal attributed to binding of the new antibody is not leftover signal from the first immunoblotting experiment. This can be done by re-exposing the blot to ECL reagents and making sure there is no signal prior to adding the next primary antibody.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalently purified water.

GKAP Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total GKAP protein.
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Arg343 of human GKAP protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Guanylate kinase-associated protein (GKAP, DLGAP1 or SAPAP1) is part of the postsynaptic scaffolding complex that includes the PSD-95, SAP90, and SHANK proteins (1-3). GKAP links the synaptic protein SHANK to a PSD-95 complex that includes NMDA glutamate receptors (3,4). Synaptic activity induces ubiquitination of GKAP protein by the E3 ubiquitin ligase TRIM3, which results in decreased GKAP protein levels through degradation (5,6). GKAP protein turnover is regulated by a CaMKII-dependent, bidirectional mechanism. Synaptic over-excitation leads to CaMKIIα-mediated GKAP phosphorylation at Ser346, which induces polyubiquitination of GKAP and removal of the scaffold protein from synapses. In contrast, during low-level synaptic activity CaMKIIβ phosphorylates GKAP, which triggers dissociation of GKAP from the motor protein complex responsible for GKAP transport to the base of the synapse and its subsequent incorporation into the postsynaptic density (7).
