Detection of Human/Mouse/Rat GSK‑3 beta by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HT-29 human colon adenocarcinoma cell line and HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL Human/Mouse/Rat GSK‑3 beta Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2506) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF005). For additional reference, recombinant human GSK-3 alpha and Recombinant Human Active GSK‑3 beta (Catalog # 2506-KS) (20 ng/lane) were included. A specific band for GSK-3 beta was detected at approximately 46 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: GSK-3 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.
