Glycogen Synthase Kinase 3 beta (GSK3B)
Description:
Glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK 3) is a proline-directed serine-threonine kinase that was initially identified as a phosphorylating and inactivating glycogen synthase. Two isoforms, alpha (GSK 3A) and beta, show a high degree of amino acid homology. GSK3B is involved in energy metabolism, neuronal cell development, and body pattern formation. GSK3B participates in the Wnt signaling pathway and has been implicated in the hormonal control of several regulatory proteins including glycogen synthase, MYB and the transcription factor JUN. GSK3B phosphorylates JUN at sites proximal to its DNA-binding domain, thereby reducing its affinity for DNA.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA, Immunofluorescence, Western Blot, Immunoprecipitation and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Immunohistochemistry (paraffin): 5ug/ml
Western Blot: 1:500-1:3000
Immunofluorescence:1:200-1:1000
ELISA: 1:10,000-1:50,000
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile 40-50% glycerol, aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
