Girdin, a member of the CCDC88 (Hook related protein) family, is an actin binding protein involved with cell migration and maintaining cytoskeletal organization. Girdin has conserved domains at the N- and C-terminus that bind microtubules and actin, respectively. It enhances PI3-kinase dependent phosphorylation of proteins, most notably Akt. This same activity can contribute to tumor proliferation, invasion, and metastasis in breast, ovarian, prostate, and pancreatic tissues. Girdin is phosphorylated at three separate locations: Ser-1416, Ser-1674, and Tyr-1764. Ser-1416 is the primary Akt phosphorylation site, while Cyclin-dependent kinases interact with Girdin and phosphorylate Ser-1674. Multiple receptor tyrosine kinases can bind girdin and phosphorylate Tyr-1764.

The Girdin phospho-regulation antibody sampler kit can be used to detect phosphorylation of Ser-1416, Ser-1674 and Tyr-1764 relative to total Girdin expression levels. The kit includes rabbit polyclonal, phospho-specific antibodies to Ser-1416, Ser-1674, and Tyr-1764, as well as a mouse monoclonal antibody to detect total Girdin epxression. The kit also includes secondary reagents for detection of these antibodies in Western blot, ELISA, or immunocytochemistry.
