|Predicted||Bovine, Mouse, Monkey, Rat|
|Calculated MW||60 KDa|
|Other Names||Beclin-1, Coiled-coil myosin-like BCL2-interacting protein, Protein GT197, BECN1, GT197|
|Target/Specificity||Synthetic phospho-peptide corresponding to amino acid residues surrounding Ser234 conjugated to KLH.|
|Format||Prepared from rabbit serum by affinity purification via sequential chromatography on phospho- and dephosphopeptide affinity columns.|
|Antibody Specificity||Specific for the ~60k beclin1 protein phosphorylated at Ser234. Immunolabeling of the beclin-1 band is decreased in the beclin-1 alanine substitution mutant. Additional bands may be observed in non-immunoprecipitated lysates.|
|Storage||Maintain 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.|
|Precautions||Phospho-Ser234 Beclin-1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|

Beclin-1 plays a key role in tumor suppression and autophagy. It has been suggested that autophagy proteins such as beclin-1 can inhibit tumorigenesis and that decreased expression of these proteins may contribute to the development of human malignancies (Liang et al., 1999). Beclin-1 has been shown to interact with 14-3-3 proteins through Akt-mediated phosphorylation at Ser234 (Wang et al., 2012).
