Chart showing the proportions of underlying sequence motifs found in a PTMScan study using PKA substrate antibody and Orbitrap LC-MS analysis. Combined analysis of two experiments (#10619, #10620) on peptides from PC-12 cells gave 187 non-redundant sites containing PKA substrate and related motifs. The primary motifs are highlighted in white. The proportion containing phosphoserine was 82%, and the proportion with arginine residues at both the -3 and -2 positions (PKA substrate motif) was 64%. Although this antibody has a strong preference for the PKA substrate motif, it also recognizes peptides with just an arginine residue at the -3 position.

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

An important class of kinases, refered to as Arg-directed kinases or AGC-family kinases, includes cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA), cGMP-dependent protein kinase (PKG), protein kinase C, Akt, and RSK. These kinases share a substrate specificity characterized by Arg at position -3 relative to the phosphorylated Ser or Thr (2,3). Phospho-PKA substrate-specific antibodies from CST are powerful tools for investigating the regulation of phosphorylation by PKA and other Arg-directed kinases, as well as for high throughput kinase drug discovery.

In this assay, PTMScan® (RRXS*/T*) Motif Antibody bead conjugates are used to specifically enrich phospho- peptides containing the RRXS*/T* motif (S* = phospho- serine, T*= phospho-threonine).
