Phospho-Ser41 Gap-43 Antibody

Affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody

  • WB - Phospho-Ser41 Gap-43 Antibody AN1012
    Western blot of rat cortex lysate showing specific immunolabeling of the ~50k Gap-43 protein phosphorylated at Ser41 (Control). The phosphospecificity of this labeling is shown in the second lane (lambda-phosphatase: λ-Ptase). The blot is identical to the control except that it was incubated in λ-Ptase (1200 units for 30 min) before being exposed to the GAP-43 Ser41 antibody. The immunolabeling of GAP-43 is completely eliminated by treatment with λ-Ptase.

Reactivity Rat
Predicted Bovine, Chicken, Human, Mouse, Monkey, Xenopus, Zebrafish
Host Rabbit
Clonality polyclonal
Calculated MW 50 KDa
Additional Information
Gene ID 29423
Gene Name GAP43
Other Names Neuromodulin, Axonal membrane protein GAP-43, Growth-associated protein 43, Protein F1, Gap43
Target/Specificity Synthetic phospho-peptide corresponding to amino acid residues surrounding Ser41 conjugated to KLH.
Dilution WB~~ 1:1000
Format Prepared from rabbit serum by affinity purification via sequential chromatography on phospho- and dephosphopeptide affinity columns.
Antibody Specificity Specific for the ~50k Gap-43 protein phosphorylated at Ser41. In some tissues the antibody also recognizes a higher molecular weight protein that is also recognized by the pan Gap-43 antibody, that may be a Gap-43 aggregate or oligomer. Immunolableing is blocked by the phosphopeptide used as antigen but not by the corresponding dephosphopeptide. Immunolabeling is completely eliminated by treatment with λ-Ptase.
StorageMaintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
PrecautionsPhospho-Ser41 Gap-43 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.

Gap-43 is thought to have an important role in development and plasticity because it is expressed at high levels in neuronal growth cones during development and during axonal regeneration (Benowitz and Routtenberg, 1997). There is also evidence from knockout animals that Gap-43 serves to amplify pathfinding signals from the growth cone (Strittmatter et al., 1995). Gap-43 is thought to mediate at least some of these effects via interaction with actin. Importantly, phosphorylation at Ser41 by protein kinase C (Catalog No. 1609-PKC) modulates the interaction of Gap-43 with actin (He et al., 1997) and may also affect eurotransmitter release during forms of plasticity like LTP (Hulo et al., 2002).
