GSK‑3 alpha in MCF‑7 Human Cell Line. GSK-3a was detected in immersion fixed MCF-7 human breast cancer cell line using Mouse Anti-Human GSK-3a Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2986) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm.

Background: GSK-3 alpha

Glycogen Synthase Kinase-3 (GSK-3) is a serine/threonine kinase initially identified as an inhibitor of glycogen synthase. Two isoforms (GSK-3 alpha and GSK-3 beta ) share 85% amino acid identity. GSK-3 alpha is inhibited by phosphorylation at S21 by Akt and other kinases. Deregulated GSK-3 has been implicated in several diseases including type II diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, bipolar disorder, and cancer.
