The Thermo Scientific Pierce S6 Colorimetric In-Cell ELISA Kit is a colorimetric microplate assay optimized to measure total and phosphorylated ribosomal S6 protein (phospho-S6) in whole cells.

Features of the S6 Colorimetric In-Cell ELISA Kit:

• Measures total and phosphorylated ribosomal S6 protein in whole cells using a 96- or 384-well microplate
• Colorimetric detection kit for use with standard microplate readers
• Whole-cell detection requires no cell lysis, protein extraction or special sample preparation
• Provides better data and higher throughput than quantitative western blotting
• Less costly (one well vs. one lane) than western blotting

This ELISA kit for whole cells includes a mouse monoclonal anti-S6 antibody, rabbit monoclonal anti-phospho-(Ser235/236) S6 antibody, detection reagents and all buffers required for colorimetric detection. The S6 Colorimetric In-Cell ELISA Kit enables simultaneous detection of both total and phospho-(Ser235/236) S6.

Overview of S6 and phosphorylation of S6:
The ribosomal S6 protein is a component of the small subunit of ribsomes (40S) and is involved in the regulation of translation. The activity of S6 is regulated, in part, by the downstream effectors of mTOR, the ribosomal protein S6 kinase (S6K). Phosphorylation of S6 by S6K is important in the regulation of protein synthesis, cell size, cell-cycle progression, glucose homeostasis and survival of newborns. S6K activation and phosphorylation of S6 are implicated in translation efficiency of mRNAs with a 5'-terminal oligopyrimidine tract (TOP mRNAs) in certain physiological conditions. S6 phosphorylation occurs on 5 serine residues (Ser235, Ser236, Ser240, Ser244 and Ser247) within the C-terminus of the protein and are evolutionarily conserved in higher eukaryotes. The S6 Colorimetric In-Cell ELISA Kit enables simultaneous detection of both total and phospho-(Ser235/236) S6.
