Detection of Human GSK 3 alpha and GSK‑3 beta by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of U2OS human osteosarcoma cell line and HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human GSK‑3 alpha / beta Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB25063) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for GSK‑3 alpha at approximately 46 and GSK‑3 beta at approximately 51 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: GSK-3 alpha/beta
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 beta, inhibited by phosphorylation at S9 by Akt, is involved in energy metabolism, body pattern formation, and neuronal cell development.
