Western blot of human A431 cells treated with Calyculin A (100 nM) for 30 min. Blot lanes were untreated (lanes 1, 3, & 5) or treated with lambda phosphatase (lanes 2, 4, & 6) then probed with anti-ATM (Ser-794) (lanes 1 & 2), anti-ATM (C-Terminal) (lanes 3 & 4), or anti-ATM (Ser-1981) (lanes 5 & 6).

Bulk Order Anti-ATM (Ser-1981), Phosphospecific Antibody
Ataxia telangiectasia mutated kinase (ATM) is a serine/threonine kinase that regulates cell cycle checkpoints and DNA repair. Mutations of ATM cause a spectrum of defects ranging from neurodegeneration to cancer predisposition. Activation of ATM after DNA damage involves Cdk5 mediated phosphorylation of Ser-794 followed by autophosphorylation at Ser-1891. Active ATM kinase regulates a number of proteins involved in cell cycle checkpoint control, apoptosis and DNA repair. The Cdk5–ATM pathway regulates phosphorylation and function of the ATM targets p53 and H2AX in postmitotic neurons. Other known substrates of ATM include Chk2, Chk1, CtIP, 4E-BP1, BRCA1, RPA3, SMC1, FANCD2, Rad17, Artemis, Nbs1, and the I-2 regulatory subunit of PP1. Thus, activation of Cdk5 by DNA damage may be an important initiator of ATM-dependent regulation of cell cycle checkpoints.

Clone M366 was generated from a phospho-peptide that included amino acids surrounding Serine 1981 in human ATM. This sequence has high homology to the conserved site in rat and mouse ATM.
