Description: This cupk43k monoclonal antibody recognizes human and mouse ribosomal protein S6 (also known as 40S ribosomal protein S6, phosphoprotein NP33, RPS6, RS6, S6) when phosphorylated on serine 235 (S235, human) and serine 236 (S236, mouse). Ribosomal protein S6 is a component of the 40S subunit of the ribosome and is phosphorylated at multiple sites following stimulation of cells by growth factors, tumor promoting agents, or mitogens. Phosphorylation of ribosomal protein S6 by p70S6K and PKDCD results in upregulation of the translation of RNA coding for proteins involved in cell cycle entry. Ribosomal protein S6 is dephosphorylated upon growth arrest.
The specificity of the cupk43k monoclonal antibody was determined by western blotting.
Applications Reported: This cupk43k antibody has been reported for use in intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This cupk43k antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by intracellular staining and flow cytometric analysis of stimulated normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.125 µg) per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test.
Use of Protocol A: Two-step protocol: intracellular (cytoplasmic) proteins allows for the greatest flexibility for detection of surface and intracellular (cytoplasmic) proteins. Use of Protocol B: One-step protocol: intracellular (nuclear) proteins is recommended for staining of transcription factors in conjunction with surface and phosphorylated intracellular (cytoplasmic) proteins. Protocol C: Two-step protocol: Fixation/Methanol allows for the greatest discrimination of phospho-specific signaling between unstimulated and stimulated samples, but with limitations on the ability to stain specific surface proteins (refer to "Clone Performance Following Fixation/Permeabilization" located in the Best Protocols Section under the Resources tab online). All Protocols can be found in the "Staining Intracellular Antigens for Flow Cytometry Protocol" located in the Best Protocols Section under the Resources tab online.

Ribosomes, the organelles that catalyze protein synthesis, consist of a small 40S subunit and a large 60S subunit. Together these subunits are composed of 4 RNA species and approximately 80 structurally distinct proteins. This gene encodes a cytoplasmic ribosomal protein that is a component of the 40S subunit. The protein belongs to the S6E family of ribosomal proteins. It is the major substrate of protein kinases in the ribosome, with subsets of five C-terminal serine residues phosphorylated by different protein kinases. Phosphorylation is induced by a wide range of stimuli, including growth factors, tumor-promoting agents, and mitogens. Dephosphorylation occurs at growth arrest. The protein may contribute to the control of cell growth and proliferation through the selective translation of particular classes of mRNA. As is typical for genes encoding ribosomal proteins, there are multiple processed pseudogenes of this gene dispersed through the genome.
