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-Thr-Pro-Arg Motif [pTPR] Rabbit mAb detects endogenous levels of proteins only when phosphorylated at the threonine within the TPR motif. This antibody does not cross-react with phospho-serine or phospho-threonine residues in a different context.Species Reactivity:

MultiMab™ rabbit monoclonal mix antibodies are prepared by combining individual rabbit monoclonal clones in optimized ratios for the approved applications. Each antibody in the mix is carefully selected based on motif recognition and performance in multiple assays. Each mix is engineered to yield the broadest possible coverage of the modification being studied while ensuring a high degree of specificity for the modification or motif.
The MAPK and CDK families of serine/threonine protein kinases play important roles in proliferation and cell cycle control. These kinases phosphorylate threonine or serine residues that are followed by a proline residue (1-3). MAPK phosphorylates substrates with the consensus sequence PX(S/T)P and CDKs phosphorylate substrates containing the consensus sequence (S/T)PXR/K (4,5). Some signaling molecules can be regulated by phosphorylation at a specific threonine followed by an arginine or lysine at the +2 position. For example, conventional PKC isozymes phosphorylate substrates containing a serine or threonine with Arg or Lys at the -3, -2 and +2 positions (6,7).
