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.

Phospho-Desmoplakin (Ser165/166) Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of desmoplakin protein only when phosphorylated at Ser165/166.Species Reactivity:
Human, Mouse, Rat, Monkey
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic phosphopeptide corresponding to residues surrounding Ser165/166 of human desmoplakin protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Desmosomes are a class of intracellular junction that tightly link adjacent cells in mechanically stressed tissues such as the epithelium and myocardium (1). They derive their characteristic strength from the protein Desmoplakin, which acts as a tether by binding the cytoplasmic component of the Desmosome at it’s N-terminus (2) while its C-terminus is anchored to the intermediate-filament cytoskeleton (3). This association mitigates the impact of mechanical forces on the desmosome by distributing them throughout the cytoskeleton and tissue (4). Desmoplakin is essential for normal desmosomal adhesion (5); defects can result in pathologies that include cardiomyopathy (6), keratoderma (7), or the skin blistering disease Epidermolysis bullosa (8).
