Ribosomal Protein S6/RPS6 in HeLa Human Cell Line. Ribosomal Protein S6/RPS6 was detected in formaldehyde fixed HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line using Mouse Anti-Human Ribosomal Protein S6/RPS6 Biotinylated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # BAM5436) at 25 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Streptavidin (orange; Catalog # NL999) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to ribosomes.

Background: Ribosomal Protein S6/RPS6
40S Ribosomal Protein S6 (RPS6) is the major substrate of protein kinases, particularly p70 S6 kinase, in eukaryotic ribosomes. RPS6 phosphorylation at S235, S236, S240, and S244 upregulates the translation of mRNAs containing an oligopyrimidine tract at their transcriptional start sites. This phosphorylation is stimulated by growth factors, tumor promoting agents, and other mitogens. RPS6 is dephosphorylated during growth arrest.
