Protocol Id: 10
Phospho-β-Catenin (Thr41/Ser45) Antibody detects endogenous levels of beta-catenin only when phosphorylated at Thr41 or Ser45. This antibody does not recognize β-catenin phosphorylated at other sites.
Human, Mouse, Monkey
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic phosphopeptide corresponding to residues surrounding Thr41 and Ser45 of human β-catenin. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
β-Catenin is a key downstream effector in the Wnt signaling pathway (1). It is implicated in two major biological processes in vertebrates: early embryonic development (2) and tumorigenesis (3). CK1 phosphorylates β-catenin at Ser45. This phosphorylation event primes β-catenin for subsequent phosphorylation by GSK-3β (4-6). GSK-3β destabilizes β-catenin by phosphorylating it at Ser33, Ser37, and Thr41 (7). Mutations at these sites result in the stabilization of β-catenin protein levels and have been found in many tumor cell lines (8).
