Our Anti-DARPP-32 (Ser137) rabbit polyclonal phosphospecific primary antibody from PhosphoSolutions is produced in-house. It detects mouse and rat DARPP-32 (Ser137) and is antigen affinity purified from pooled serum. It is great for use in WB.
Western blot of rat striatal lysate showing specific immunolabeling of the ~32 kDa DARPP-32 phosphorylated at Ser137 in the first lane (-). Phosphospecificity is shown in the second lane (+) where immunolabeling is blocked by preadsorption of the phosphopeptide used as the antigen, but not by the corresponding non-phosphopeptide (not shown).
Anti-DARPP-32 (Ser137) Antibody
DARPP-32 is a dopamine (DA) and cAMP-regulated ~32 kDa phosphoprotein that is associated with dopaminoceptive neurons (Fienberg et al., 1998). The protein inhibits protein phosphatase I when it is phosphorylated on Thr-34. In contrast, when DARPP-32 is phosphorylated on Thr-75 the protein acts as an inhibitor of PKA (Bibb et al., 1999). Phosphorylation of DARPP-32 is thought to play a critical role in the regulation of dopaminergic neurotransmission. In addition, the activity of DARPP-32 is also thought to play important roles in the actions of alcohol, caffeine and Prozac® (Maldve et al., 2002; Lindskog et al., 2002; Svenningsson et al., 2002). Serine-137 is phosphorylated by casein kinase 1 and phosphorylation of this site is increased following acute administration of Prozac® (Svenningsson et al., 2002).
Antigen Affinity Purified from Pooled Serum
Synthetic phospho-peptide corresponding to amino acid residues surrounding Ser137 of rat DARPP-32, conjugated to keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH).
Storage at -20°C is recommended, as aliquots may be taken without freeze/thawing due to presence of 50% glycerol. Stable for at least 1 year at -20°C.
Prepared from pooled rabbit serum by affinity purification via sequential chromatography on phospho and non-phospho peptide affinity columns.
10 mM HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 µg per ml BSA and 50% glycerol.
WB Brain: 1:1000
Specific for endogenous levels of the ~32 kDa DARPP-32 protein phosphorylated at Ser137. Immunolabeling is blocked by preadsorption with the phosphopeptide used as antigen, but not by the corresponding non-phosphopeptide.
Western blots performed on each lot.
