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.

GRK6 (D1A4) Rabbit mAb recognizes endogenous levels of total GRK6 protein.Species Reactivity:
Human, Mouse, Rat
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Glu89 of human GRK6 protein.
G protein-coupled Receptor Kinase 6 (GRK6) is one of 7 members of the GRK serine/threonine kinase subfamily, which are known primarily for their role in desensitizing activated G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) (1,2). GRKs function by phosphorylating serine/threonine residues in activated GPCRs. Upon phosphorylation these residues serve as binding sites for β-arrestin proteins, inhibiting re-activation of GPCRs by blocking their re-association with G proteins (3). There is evidence that GRKs can also modulate selected non-GPCR signaling pathways (2). For example, GRK6 has been shown to modulate the Wnt signaling pathway via phosphorylation of LRP6 (4), and the insulin-like growth factor signaling pathway (5). GRK6 may also play a role in immune system function. Investigators have found GRK6 expression is typically abundant in hematopoietic tumor cell lines, and a recent research study demonstrated that GRK6 suppression was selectively lethal for a number of myeloma tumor cell lines (6).
