Figure Legend: Up-regulation and Antibody-Peptide Competition. Peptide Competition. Extracts of 3T3L1 cells stimulated with 100 nM insulin for 10 minutes were resolved by SDS-PAGE on a 10% Tris-glycine gel and transferred to PVDF. The membrane was blocked with a 5% BSA-TBST buffer for one hour at room temperature and either left untreated (1-4) or treated with lambda phosphatase (5), and then incubated with the GSK-3a[pY279]/ß[pY216] antibody for two hours at room temperature in a 1% BSA-TBST buffer, following its prior incubation with: the phosphopeptide immunogen (1), no peptide (2), the non-phosphopeptide corresponding to the phosphopeptide immunogen (3), or a generic phosphotyrosine-containing peptide (4). After washing, the membrane was incubated with goat F(ab')2 anti-rabbit IgG HRP conjugate (Cat. no. ALI4404), and signals were detected using the Pierce SuperSignal™ method. The data show that only the phosphopeptide corresponding to GSK-3a[pY279]/ß[pY216] blocks the antibody signal, demonstrating the specificity of the antibody. The data also show that phosphatase stripping eliminates the signal, further verifying that the antibody is phospho-specific. (Cat. No. 44604G)

Glycogen synthase kinase-3 beta (GSK3 beta) belongs to the subfamily of glycogen synthase kinases, that play a central role in energy metabolism, neuronal cell development, and body pattern formation. GSK3 has alpha and beta isoforms (51 kDa and 47 kDa respectively), that are functionally dissimilar. GSK3 beta plays a role in insulin and Wnt signaling, and is inhibited following the extracellular signaling events.
