Antigen/Purification: ExpandCollapse

The antigen is a phosphopeptide corresponding to amino acid residues surrounding the phospho-Ser28 of p62.

The antibody is prepared from pooled rabbit serum by affinity purification via sequential chromatography on phospho- and dephospho- peptide affinity columns.

Biological Significance: ExpandCollapse

p62, also known as sequestosome1 (SQSTM1), is a shuttle protein transporting polyubiquitinated proteins for both proteasomal and lysosomal degradation. p62 is an integral component of inclusions in brains of various neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer disease (AD) neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) and Lewy bodies in Parkinson disease (Nogalaska et al., 2009). p62 plays an important role in the protection of cells from the toxicity of misfolded proteins by enhancing aggregate formation especially in the later stages (Nakaso et al., 2004). Phosphorylation of Ser28 has recently been demonstrated to be related to the pathogenesis of Parkinson’s disease.

Western blot of Jurkat cell lysate showing specific immunolabeling of the ~48 kDa p62 phosphorylated at Ser28 in the first lane (-). Phosphospecificity is shown in the second lane (+) where immunolabeling is blocked by preadsorption of the phosphopeptide used as antigen, but not by the corresponding non-phosphopeptide (not shown).
