Detection of Human Phospho-p53 (S37) by Western Blot. Western blot shows p53 immunoprecipitated from lysates of MCF‑7 human breast cancer cell line using Human/Mouse/Rat p53 Agarose-conjugated Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # GAF1355). MCF‑7 cell line was untreated (-) or treated (+) with 1 μM camptothecin (CPT) for 5 hours. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.4 µg/mL Rabbit Anti-Human Phospho-p53 (S37) Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3306) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rabbit IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF008). A specific band for Phospho-p53 (S37) was detected at approximately 53 kDa (as indicated). The phospho-specificity of this antibody was supported by decreased labeling following treatment with 600 U lambda -phosphatase ( lambda -PPase) for 1 hour. For additional reference the membrane was stripped and reprobed with 1:5000 dilution of Human/Mouse/Rat p53 HRP-conjugated Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (lower panel, Catalog # HAF1355) This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

The p53 tumor suppressor protein acts to enforce cell cycle checkpoints or signal apoptosis in cells that have incurred genotoxic damage. The ATR and DNA-PKCS kinases phosphorylate p53 at serine 37 in response to UV light and other genotoxic stressors. This phosphorylation event results in increased p53 transcriptional activation.
