Western blot analysis of extracts from COS cells, untransfected (lane 1) or transfected with either wild-type (lanes 2 and 3) or Ala916 mutant (lanes 4 and 5) Ras-GRF1, using Phospho-Ras-GRF1 (Ser916) Antibody (upper) or Ras-GRF1 Antibody #3322 (lower). Transfected COS cells were untreated or treated forskolin as indicated.(Triple HA-tagged Ras-GRF1 expressing plasmids provided by Dr. R. Mattingly, Dept. of Pharmacology, Wayne State University, Michigan.)
Supplied in 10 mM sodium HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 µg/ml BSA and 50% glycerol. Store at –20°C. Do not aliquot the antibody.
For western blots, incubate membrane with diluted primary antibody in 5% w/v BSA, 1X TBS, 0.1% Tween® 20 at 4°C with gentle shaking, overnight.

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.

Protocol Id: 10
Phospho-Ras-GRF1 (Ser916) Antibody detects transfected levels of Ras-GRF1 only when phosphorylated at serine 916. This antibody does not cross-react with phosphorylated Ras-GRF2.Species Reactivity:
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic phosphopeptide corresponding to residues surrounding serine 916 of mouse Ras-GRF1. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Ras activity is regulated by GAP (GTPase activating proteins) and GEFs (guanine nucleotide exchange factors). Ras-GRF1 (also known as CDC25Mm) is neuronal RasGEF and is regulated by heterotrimeric G proteins and calcium influx (1,2). Binding to calmodulin and phosphorylation stimulate Ras-GRF1 activity (1,2). Multiple PKA phosphorylation sites on Ras-GRF have been identified. Phosphorylation on the two major sites, Ser54 and Ser822, inhibits Ras-GRF activity (3). Carbachol (a muscarinic agonist)-induced phosphorylation on Ser916 is essential but not sufficient for maximal Ras-GRF activity (4). It has been reported that Ras-GRF1 also shows GEF activity toward Rac after phosphorylation by the tyrosine kinase Src (5).
