Application Instructions

Application Suggestion
Tested Application Dilution
Application Note Specific for the ~135k KCC2 protein phosphorylated at Ser940. Immunolabeling of the KCC2 protein band is blocked by the phospho-peptide used as antigen but not by the corresponding dephosphopeptide.
* The dilutions indicate recommended starting dilutions and the optimal dilutions or concentrations should be determined by the scientist.


Form Liquid
Purification Affinity Purified
Buffer 10 mM HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 0.1 mg/ml BSA and 50% Glycerol

Background KCC2 is widely thought to be expressed exclusively in neurons where it is responsible for maintaining low intracellular chloride concentration to drive hyperpolarizing post-synaptic responses to the inhibitory neurotransmitters GABA and glycine. Serine 940 on KCC2 has been shown to be phosphorylated by PKC and has further been demonstrated to be the major site for PKC-dependent phosphorylation for full length KCC2 molecules when expressed in HEK-293 cells as phosphorylation of Ser940 increased the cell surface stability of KCC2 in this system by decreasing it’s rate of internalization from the plasma membrane (Lee et al., 2007).
