IκBα Phospho-Regulation Antibody Kit

Antibody Sampler Kit



The NF-κB/Rel transcription factors are present in the cytosol in an inactive state complexed with the inhibitory IκB proteins. Activation of IκBα occurs through both serine and tyrosine phosphorylation events. Activation through phosphorylation at Ser-32 and Ser-36 is followed by proteasome-mediated degradation, resulting in the release and nuclear translocation of active NF-κB. This pathway of IκBα regulation occurs in response to various NF-κB-activating agents, such as TNFα, interleukins, LPS, and irradiation. An alternative pathway for IκBα regulation occurs through tyrosine phosphorylation of Tyr-42 and Tyr-305. Tyr-42 is phosphorylated in response to oxidative stress and growth factors. This phosphorylation can lead to degradation of IκBα and NF-κB-activation. In contrast, Tyr-305 phosphorylation by c-Abl has been implicated in IκBα nuclear translocation and inhibition of NF-κB-activation. Thus, tyrosine phosphorylation of IκBα may be an important regulatory mechanism in NF-κB signaling.

Western blot analysis of Jurkat cells untreated (lanes 1 & 3) or treated with TNFα (1 nM). The blots were probed with anti-IκBα (lanes 1 & 2) or anti-IκBα (Ser-32/Ser-36) (lanes 3 & 4).

Western blot analysis of A431 cells treated with pervanadate (1 mM) for 30 min. Blots were probed with anti-IκBα (lane 1), anti-IκBα (Tyr-42) (IP1031; lanes 2-5), or anti-IκBα (Tyr-305) (IP1041; lanes 6-9). In some lanes, the antibodies were used in the absence (lane 2 & 6) or presence of IκBα (Tyr-42) (lane 3 & 8) or IκBα (Tyr-305) (lane 4 & 7) blocking peptides, or BSA conjugated to phospho-tyrosine (lane 5 & 9).

Mouse monoclonal and rabbit polyclonal antibodies are supplied in phosphate-buffered saline, 50% glycerol, 1 mg/ml BSA, and 0.05% sodium azide. The secondary reagents are supplied in the same buffer without azide. Store all at –20°C. Stable for 1 year.

The products are are safely shipped at ambient temperature for both domestic and international shipments. Each product is guaranteed to match the specifications as indicated on the corresponding technical data sheet. Please store at -20C upon arrival for long term storage.

*All molecular weights (MW) are confirmed by comparison to Bio-Rad Rainbow Markers and to western blot mobilities of known proteins with similar MW.
