This antibody is predicted to react with canine, mouse, non-human primate and zebrafish based on 100% sequence homology.
This antibody is specific for ~46 kDa Elk-1 phosphorylated at Ser383 in Western blots using phospho and dephospho Elk-1 recombinant protein. Immunolabeling is blocked by the phosphopeptide used as the antigen but not by the corresponding dephosphopeptide.
Elk-1 is a transcription factor involved in mediating gene transcription in response to growth factors (Hill and Treisman, 1995). Elk-1 is thought to be phosphorylated by MAP kinase at Ser383 and phosphorylation at this site is essential for the transcriptional activity of Elk-1 (Li et al., 2003). Phosphorylation of Elk-1 has also been implicated in synaptic plasticity in the adult hippocampus (Thiels et al., 2002).
