      DescriptionAnti-phospho-Glycogen Synthase (muscle) (Ser640) Antibody
      Alternate Names
      • Starchsynthase, muscle
      Background InformationA glycosyltransferase enzyme that catalyses the reaction of UDP-glucose and (1,4-α-D-glucosyl)n to yield UDP and (1,4-α-D-glucosyl)n+1. In other words, this enzyme converts excess glucose residues one by one into a polymeric chain for storage as glycogen. The reaction is highly regulated by allosteric effectors such as glucose-6-phosphate, by phosphorylation reactions, and indirectly triggered by the hormone insulin.

      FormatAffinity Purified
      • PDGF treated NIH/3T3 cell lysate
      PresentationPurified rabbit polyclonal IgG in buffer containing 0.02 M Potassium phosphate, pH 7.2 with 0.15 M Sodium chloride and 0.01% sodium azide.
      ApplicationThis Anti-phospho-Glycogen Synthase (muscle) (Ser640) Antibody is validated for use in WB, ELISA for the detection of phospho-Glycogen Synthase (muscle) (Ser640).
      Key Applications
      • Western Blotting
      • ELISA
      Application NotesDirect ELISA: 1:30,000-1:150,000 dilution of a previous lot was used in direct ELISA when assayed against 0.1 µg of the immunogen peptide.

      Optimal working dilutions must be determined by the end user.

      Western Blot: A previous lot of this antibody was tested on multiple lysates. See datasheet.
      Biological Information
      ImmunogenSynthetic phospho peptide from human muscle Glycogen synthase.
      ConcentrationPlease refer to the Certificate of Analysis for the lot-specific concentration.
      SpecificityGlycogen synthase (muscle), phosphoSer640. By Western blot the antibody recognizes the ~84 kDa phosphorylated protein. Reactivity to non-phosphorylated human Glycogen synthase is minimal (less than 0.2%) by ELISA.

      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene SummaryGlycogen is a high molecular mass polysaccharide that serves as a repository of glucose for use in times of metabolic need. Glycogen synthase (EC catalyzes the addition of glucose monomers to the growing glycogen molecule through the formation of alpha-1,4-glycoside linkages (Pederson et al., 2004 [PubMed 15282316]).[supplied by OMIM]

      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: Transfers the glycosyl residue from UDP-Glc to the non-reducing end of alpha-1,4-glucan.
      CATALYTIC ACTIVITY: UDP-glucose ((1->4)-alpha-D-glucosyl)(n) = UDP + ((1->4)-alpha-D-glucosyl)(n+1).
      ENZYME REGULATION: Allosteric activation by glucose-6-phosphate. Phosphorylation reduces the activity towards UDP-glucose. When in the non-phosphorylated state, glycogen synthase does not require glucose-6-phosphate as an allosteric activator; when phosphorylated it does (By similarity).
      PATHWAY: Glycan biosynthesis; glycogen biosynthesis.
      DISEASE: Defects in GYS1 are the cause of muscle glycogen storage disease type 0 (GSD0b) [MIM:611556]; also called muscle glycogen synthase deficiency. GSD0 is a metabolic disorder characterized by fasting hypoglycemia presenting in infancy or early childhood. The role of muscle glycogen is to provide critical energy during bursts of activity and sustained muscle work.
      SIMILARITY: Belongs to the mammalian/fungal glycogen synthase family.
      Molecular WeightAntibody recognizes the ~84 kDa phosphorylated protein.
