Western blot of control and alkaline phosphatase-treated (AP) neonatal rat brain lysate (20 µg/lane). Blots were probed with anti-N-WASP (Lanes 1 & 2), anti-phospho-N-WASP (S484/S485) (Lanes 3 & 4), or anti-unphosphorylated-N-WASP (S484/S485) (Lanes 5 & 6).
Bulk Order Anti-N-WASP Antibody
unphosphorylated N-WASP (Ser-484/Ser-485)
Members of the Wiskott-Aldrich sydrome protein (WASP) family regulate the formation of actin-based cell structures in many cell types. These proteins contain C-terminal actin-binding domains that can stimulate actin polymerization. In addition, these proteins bind the ARP2/3 complex, which can nucleate actin polymerization at sites that lead to branched actin structures. WASP is expressed primarily in hematopoietic cells, while its homolog N-WASP is widely expressed. These proteins have 48% identity in human with the highest homology in the functional regions of these proteins. Phosphorylation regulates the activity of both proteins. Dual phosphorylation of WASP on serine 483 and 484 by casein kinases increase the affinity for the ARP2/3 complex. Thus, dual serine phosphorylation may be important for formation of actin-based structures in various cell types
Antigen Affinity Purified
Unphosphorylated N-WASP synthetic peptide (coupled to KLH) corresponding to amino acid residues around serine 484 and 485 of human N-WASP. The human WASP sequence has a similar peptide sequence surrounding serine 483 and 484.

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.
PBS + 1 mg/ml BSA, 0.05% NaN3 and 50% glycerol
This antibody was cross-adsorbed to phospho-N-WASP (S484/S485) peptide (without carrier) then affinity purified using unphosphorylated N-WASP (S484/S485) peptide (without carrier). The antibody detects a 65 kDa* protein on SDS-PAGE immunoblots of rat brain and SKN-SH cell lysates that are treated with alkaline phosphatase. Only low levels of unphosphorylated WASP or N-WASP are detected in untreated rat brain, Jurkat, and A431 cells.
