Regulatory Status Legend
Ribosomal protein S6 (~29 kDa calculated and ~32 kDa observed molecular weights) is a component of the 40S ribosomal subunit and belongs to the S6E family of ribosomal proteins. The S6 ribosomal protein plays a role in regulating the translation of RNAs and thus controlling the growth and proliferation of cells. S6 ribosomal protein phosphorylation, especially at multiple C-terminal serine residues S235, S236, S240, and S244, activates S6. The activated S6 ribosomal protein in turn upregulates the ribosomal translation of RNA species coding for other ribosomal proteins, peptide elongation factors and other proteins involved in cell cycle entry and progression. These phosphorylations are mediated by various kinases (e.g., p70S6K and PKCD) activated through cellular responses to growth factors, cytokines, tumor promoting agents, and mitogens. The S6 ribosomal protein can be dephosphorylated in growth-arrested cells.
The N7-548 monoclonal antibody specifically detects the S6 ribosomal protein phosphorylated at S235 and S236.
Alexa Fluor® 647 conjugates are highly photostable and remain fluorescent over a broad pH range. The excitation and emission maxima are nearly identical to those of APC. However, APC tends to be brighter while Alexa Fluor® 647 is more optimal for intracellular applications. This fluorochrome exhibits uncommon photostability, making it an ideal choice for use in fluorescence microscopy. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, APC and Alexa Fluor® 647 cannot be used simultaneously.

Preparation and Storage
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
The antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 647 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 647 was removed.
- This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
- Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
- Alexa Fluor® 647 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for allophycocyanin (APC).
