Western blot image of recombinant his-tagged human SK1 protein that was phosphorylated with ERK-2. Blots were probed with anti-SK1 (Central Region) (SP1621; lanes 1-3) and anti-SK1 (Ser-225) (SP1641; lanes 4-6). Both antibodies were used in the presence of no peptide (lanes 1 & 4), phospho-SK1 (Ser-225) peptide (SX1645; lanes 2 & 5), or unphosphorylated SK1 (Ser-225) peptide (SX1625; lanes 3 & 6).

Sphingosine Kinase 1 (Central region)
Sphingolipids are metabolized into bioactive products that include ceramide, sphingosine, and sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P). Sphingosine Kinase (SK) catalyzes the phosphorylation of the lipid sphingosine, creating S1P. S1P subsequently signals through cell surface G protein-coupled receptors, as well as intracellularly, to modulate cell proliferation, survival, motility and differentiation. Two isoforms of SK have been identified, SK1 and SK2. The mRNA for both of these isoforms is widely expressed with SK1 expression highest in brain, heart, kidney, thymus, spleen and lung, while SK2 is highest in kidney and liver. SKs can be activated through growth factor, G protein-coupled, and immunoglobulin receptor signalling. SK1 has been shown to mediate cell growth, prevention of apoptosis, and cellular transformation, and is upregulated in a variety of human tumors. Regulation of SK1 may occur through ERK mediated phosphorylation of Ser-225. This phosphorylation leads to increased activity and translocation to the plasma membrane.
Antigen Affinity Purified
SK1 synthetic peptide (coupled to carrier protein) corresponding to an unphosphorylated sequence of amino acids surrounding serine 225 in the central region of human SK1. This sequence has 4 amino acid differences from mouse and 5 from rat SK1, and is not homologous to sequences in SK2.
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.

The antibody detects a 47 kDa* full-length recombinant human SK1 protein. In mouse, the antibody detects SK1 in isolated cardiac myocytes, but not in SK1-null mice (Tao, R. et al. (2007) Cardiovas. Res. 74:56.).
