β-Catenin is a key downstream effector in the Wnt signaling pathway. It is implicated in two major biological processes in vertebrates: early embryonic development and tumorigenesis. CK1 phosphorylates β-catenin at Ser45. This phosphorylation event primes β-catenin for subsequent phosphorylation by GSK-3β. GSK-3β destabilizes β-catenin by phosphorylating it at Ser33, Ser37, and Thr41. Mutations at these sites result in the stabilization of β-catenin protein levels and have been found in many tumor cell lines.
Homo Sapiens (Human)
Synthetic peptide, corresponding to amino acids N-terminus of Human Catenin-β.
Human, Mouse, Rat
Product: 1 mg/ml in Phosphate buffered saline (PBS) with 0.05% sodium azide, approx. pH 7.2.Specificity: Catenin-β (I35) polyclonal antibody detects endogenous levels of Catenin-β protein.
The antibody was affinity-purified from rabbit antiserum by affinity-chromatography using epitope-specific immunogen and the purity is > 95% (by SDS-PAGE).
Store at 4°C short term. Aliquot and store at -20°C long term. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
