Western blot analysis of human Jurkat cells treated with 100 nM calyculin A for 30 min. then the blots were untreated (-) or treated (+) with lambda phosphatase. The blots were probed with rabbit polyclonal anti-CXCR4 (Ser-324/Ser-325) (left panel), or anti-CXCR4 (a.a. 328-338) (right panel).

CXCR4 (C-terminal region)
The chemokine receptor CXCR4 is a widely expressed G protein-coupled receptor required for development, hematopoiesis, organogenesis, and vascularization. In disease, CXCR4 has been implicated in WHIM syndrome, HIV, and cancers. Regulation of CXCR4 function occurs through phosphorylation at multiple sites in the C-terminal region. These sites have been shown to be phosphorylated after CXCL12 stimulation, and involve several kinases, such as PKC and GRK kinases. After CXCL12 stimulation of HEK293 cells, Ser-324 and Ser-325 become phosphorylated by PKC and GRK6, while Ser-330 and Ser-339 are phosphorylated by only GRK6. In human astroglia cells, Ser-324 and Ser-325 are rapidly phosphorylated in endogenous CXCR4, while Ser-330 was phosphorylated with slower kinetics. In addition, arrestin binding to CXCR4 is driven by this phosphorylation of far C-terminal residues. Thus, site-specific phosphorylation of CXCR4 may be regulated by multiple kinases lead to complex regulation of CXCR4 signaling.
Antigen Affinity Purified
CXCR4 synthetic peptide (coupled to carrier protein) corresponds to amino acids in the C-terminal region of human CXCR4. This sequence is conserved in mouse and rat CXCR4, but has low homology to other CXCR family members.

Recommended that the undiluted antibody be aliquoted into smaller working volumes (10-30 uL/vial depending on usage) upon arrival and stored long term at -20° C or -80° C, while keeping a working aliquot stored at 4° C for short term. Avoid freeze/thaw cycles. Stable for at least 1 year.
PBS + 1 mg/ml BSA and 0.05% NaN3
The antibody detects bands at 35, 42, 50, and 100 kDa* corresponding to various post-translationally modified forms of CXCR4 on SDS-PAGE immunoblots of human Jurkat and PC3 cells. These bands co-migrate with similar bands detected with anti-CXCR4 (Ser-324/Ser-325) and anti-CXCR4 (a.a. 322-329) antibodies.
