Detection of Human Phospho-BTK (Y223) by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of Raji human Burkitt's lymphoma cell line untreated (-) or treated (+) with 1 mM Pervanadate for 30 minutes. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human Phospho-BTK (Y223) Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7205) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for Phospho-BTK (Y223) at approximately 80 kDa (as indicated). For additional reference, duplicate samples were probed with 0.05 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human BTK Monoclonal Antibody (lower panel, Catalog # MAB5807) This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Phospho-BTK (Y223) in Raji Human Cell Line. BTK phosphorylated at Y223 was detected in immersion fixed Raji human Burkitt's lymphoma cell line with (upper panel) and without (lower panel) pervanadate stimulation using Mouse Anti-Human Phospho-BTK (Y223) Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7205) 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.

Bruton tyrosine kinase (BTK) is a 75 kDa cytoplasmic protein tyrosine kinase that is widely expressed in hematopoietic cells. BTK is required for B cell receptor signaling and B cell development. Defects in BTK result in X-linked agammaglobulinemia which is characterized by a severely decreased level of circulating antibodies. Like other Tec family kinases, BTK contains a Pleckstrin homology domain, a Tec homology domain, an SH3 domain, an SH2 domain, and a protein kinase domain. Association of the BTK SH2 domain with the B cell linker protein (BLNK) is required for the activation of PLC gamma by BTK. The autophosphorylation of Tyr223 facilitates
the interaction of BTK with activated Syk. The sequence used as a peptide immunogen is identical in human, mouse and rat BTK.
