Technical Data
14-3-3 Binding Motif, phosphorylated (Ser)
The 14-3-3 proteins are a highly conserved family of proteins involved in the regulation of cell survival, apoptosis, proliferation and checkpoint control (1-5). Biological regulation by 14-3-3 is mediated through phosphorylation-dependent protein-protein interactions (6). Two different phospho-Ser-containing motifs are found within nearly all known 14-3-3 binding proteins (7). Motif 1 (Arg/Lys and Ser at positions -3 and -2, phospho-Ser at position 0, and Pro at position +2) is found in critical regulatory proteins including Bad, cdc25c, FKHRL1, PKC and c-Raf (5,7).

Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunoprecipitation. Other applications not tested.

Synthetic phospho-(Ser) 14-3-3 binding motif peptides (KLH).
Supplied as a liquid in 10mM sodium HEPES, pH 7.5, 150mM sodium chloride, 0.1mg/ml BSA, 0.02% sodium azide, 50% glycerol.
Recognizes peptides/proteins containing phospho-Ser surrounded by Pro at the +2 position and Arg/Lys at the -3 position. By ELISA, recognizes a wide range of peptides containing this phosphorylated 14-3-3 binding motif in a manner that is phospho-specific and largely independent of the surrounding amino acid sequence. Weakly crossreacts with sequences containing phospho-Thr instead of phospho-Ser in this motif and with sequences containing phospho-Ser surrounded by Phe at the +1 position and Arg/Lys at the -3 position. No crossreactivity is observed with corresponding nonphosphorylated sequences.
Intended for research use only. Not for use in human, therapeutic, or diagnostic applications.
