Sample Data :Western blot using Affinity Purified Anti-Phospho-GSKα (Ser21) antibody to detect human GSK3A in various human derived 293T cell extracts. Cells were serum starved for 24 h. Lane 1: control, Lane 2: treated with IGF-1 (100 ng/ml) for 20 min, Lane 3: pre-treated with 10 uM LY294002 (selective PI3K inhibitor) and treated with IGF-1 (100 ng/ml) for 20 min.

Scientific Background :GSK3α is a multifunctional protein serine kinase, homologous to Drosophila 'shaggy' (zeste-white3) and implicated in the control of several regulatory proteins including glycogen synthase and transcription factors (e.g., JUN) (1). GSK3α also plays a role in the WNT and PI3K signaling pathways. Alzheimer disease is associated with increased production and aggregation of amyloid-beta-40 and -42 peptides into plaques. GSK3α is required for maximal production of the beta-amyloid-40 and -42 peptides generated from the amyloid precursor protein by presenilin-dependent gamma-secretase cleavage. In vitro, lithium, a GSK3α inhibitor, blocks the production of the beta-amyloid peptides by interfering with the gamma-secretase step (2).
