PROPERTIES

Form

Liquid

Buffer

0.02 M Potassium Phosphate, 0.15 M Sodium Chloride, pH 7.2 and 0.01% (w/v) Sodium Azide

Storage

Store as concentrated solution. Centrifuge briefly prior to opening vial. For short-term storage (1-2 weeks), store at 4ºC. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20ºC or below. Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.

Concentration

1.0 mg/ml (Please refer to the vial label for the specific concentration.)

Antigen Species

Human

Immunogen

Human Muscle Glycogen Synthase phospho peptide corresponding to a region of the human protein conjugated to Keyhole Limpet Hemocyanin (KLH) - AQGYRYPRPA(pS)VP (aa 631-642).

Purification

Purified by antigen-affinity chromatography.
This antibody was affinity purified from monospecific antiserum by immunoaffinity purification. Antiserum was first purified against the phosphorylated form of the immunizing peptide. The resultant affinity purified antibody was then cross-adsorbed agains

Conjugation

Unconjugated

Note

For laboratory use only. Not for any clinical, therapeutic, or diagnostic use in humans or animals. Not for animal or human consumption.
TARGET

Synonyms

Glycogen Synthase 1,Gsy,Gys,Gys1

Background

Human muscle glycogen synthase (GS) is responsible for the biosynthesis of glycogen from phosphorylated glucose units. Mammalian liver and muscle contain GS consisting of four subunits with a total molecular weight of 360,000. GS is subject to regulation through both allosteric and covalent modification and occurs in two forms: the phosphorylated inactive form, and the dephosphorylated active form. GS is inactivated by the serine/threonine kinase called glycogen synthase kinase-3b that mainly functions to phosphorylate muscle glycogen synthase. This antibody is specific for the phosphorylated form of GS at Ser 640. Phosphorylation of GS at S640 has been associated with Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome.

GTX22479 WB Image

Affinity Purified Phospho-specific antibody to human muscle Glycogen Synthase at pS640 (GTX22479) was used at a 1:1000 dilution to detect human muscle GS by Western blot. Approximately 12 ul of a mouse cardiac myocyte lysate was loaded per lane on a 4-20% Criterion gel for SDS-PAGE. Samples were either mock treated (lanes 1 and 5) or insulin treated at 10 nM, 100 nM and 1 µM (lanes 2, 3 and 4 respectively) for 15' or CLA treated at 4nM, 20 nM or 100 nM (lanes 6,7 and 8 respectively) for 45'. After washing, a 1:5,000 dilution of HRP conjugated Gt-a-Rabbit IgG (GTX27090) preceded color development using Amersham's substrate system.
