Chart showing the proportions of underlying sequence motifs found in a PTMScan® study using a MAPK/CDK substrate motif antibody and OrbiTrap MS analysis. Analysis of peptides from HeLa cells, untreated (experiment #10684) and nocodazole-treated (experiment #10685), gave 439 nonredundant sites containing MAPK/CDK substrate and related motifs. 20% of these sites are motif PXS*PX(R/K); 70% are motif PXS*P; and 10% are motif S*PX(R/K). The antibody is phospho-serine specific and does not recognize phospho-threonine peptides.

The Motif Logo shows the amino acid distributions around the sites recognized by the antibody.

Product Usage Information

Cells are lysed in a urea-containing buffer, cellular proteins are digested by proteases, and the resulting peptides are purified by reversed-phase, solid-phase extraction. Peptides are then subjected to immunoaffinity purification using a PTMScan® Motif antibody conjugated to protein A agarose beads. Unbound peptides are removed through washing, and the captured PTM-containing peptides are eluted with dilute acid. Reversed-phase purification is performed on microtips to desalt and separate peptides from antibody prior to concentrating the enriched peptides for LC-MS/MS analysis. CST recommends the use of PTMScan® IAP Buffer #9993 included in the kit. A detailed protocol and Limited Use License allowing the use of the patented PTMScan® method is included with the kit.

Storage:

Antibody beads supplied in IAP buffer containing 50% glycerol. Store at -20°C. Do not aliquot the antibody.

Product Description

PTMScan® Technology employs a proprietary methodology from Cell Signaling Technology (CST) for peptide enrichment by immunoprecipitation using a specific bead-conjugated antibody in conjunction with liquid chromatography (LC) tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) for quantitative profiling of post-translational modification (PTM) sites in cellular proteins. These include phosphorylation (PhosphoScan®), ubiquitination (UbiScan®), acetylation (AcetylScan®), and methylation (MethylScan®), among others. PTMScan® Technology enables researchers to isolate, identify, and quantitate large numbers of post-translationally modified cellular peptides with a high degree of specificity and sensitivity, providing a global overview of PTMs in cell and tissue samples without preconceived biases about where these modified sites occur (1).

Background

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 followed by a proline residue (2-4). MAPK phosphorylates substrates with the consensus sequence PX(S/T)P, and CDKs phosphorylate substrates containing the consensus sequence (S/T)PXK/R.

Phospho-MAPK/CDK Substrates (PXSP or SPXR/K) Rabbit mAb #2325, contained in this kit, was developed at CST for use in the study and discovery of new MAPK and CDK substrates (5,6).

In this assay, PTMScan® (PXS*P or S*PXK/R) Motif Antibody bead conjugates are used to specifically enrich phosphopeptides containing the PXS*P motif or the S*PXK/R motif (S* = phospho-serine).
