Reprobing of an existing membrane is a convenient means to immunoblot for multiple proteins independently when only a limited amount of sample is available. It should be noted that for the best possible results a fresh blot is always recommended. Reprobing can be a valuable method but with each reprobing of a blot there is potential for increased background signal. Additionally, it is recommended that you verify the removal of the first antibody complex prior to reprobing so that signal attributed to binding of the new antibody is not leftover signal from the first immunoblotting experiment. This can be done by re-exposing the blot to ECL reagents and making sure there is no signal prior to adding the next primary antibody.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalently purified water.

Protocol Id: 10
Phospho-Ser-Pro-Pro Motif [pSPP] Rabbit mAb recognizes endogenous levels of proteins only when phosphorylated at serine within the context of the SPP motif. This antibody does not cross-react with proteins phosphorylated at threonine, or with serine residues phosphorylated in other contexts.Species Reactivity:
All Species Expected
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide library containing the phospho-Ser-Pro-Pro motif.
The MAPK and CDK families of serine/threonine protein kinases play important roles in cell signaling and cell cycle control. These kinases phosphorylate threonine or serine followed by a proline residue (1-6). To facilitate the study and discovery of new MAPK and CDK substrates, Cell Signaling Technology has developed antibodies that bind to phospho-threonine or phospho-serine followed by proline.
The S/TPP motif matches the consensus sequence for targeted phosphorylation by Cdc2 (7,8), ERK1, ERK2 (9), SAPK/JNK, CDK5, and GSK3 (10).
