RSK1/RSK2 in Mouse Brain. RSK1/RSK2 was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse brain (Purkinje cells in cerebellum) using 15 µg/mL Rabbit Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat Phospho-RSK1/RSK2 (RSK1 S221, RSK2 S227) Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF892) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Rabbit HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS005) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Detection of Human Phospho-RSK1 (S221) and RSK2 (S227) by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line untreated (-) or treated (+) with 200 nM PMA for for the indicated times. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.5 µg/mL of Rabbit Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat Phospho-RSK1 (S221)/RSK2 (S227) Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF892), followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rabbit IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF008). A specific band was detected for Phospho-RSK1 (S221) and RSK2 (S227) at approximately 90 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

The 90 kDa ribosomal protein S6 kinases (RSK1-4) are a family of broadly expressed Ser/Thr kinases activated in response to mitogenic stimuli, including growth factors and tumor-promoting phorbol esters. RSKs are directly phosphorylated by ERK1 and ERK2, leading to RSK autophosphorylation and activation. Active RSKs appear to play a major role in transcriptional regulation by translocating to the nucleus and phosphorylating c-Fos and CREB.
