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-BCL9L (Ser915) Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of BCL9L protein only when phosphorylated at Ser915.Species Reactivity:
HumanSpecies predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology:
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Ser915 of human BCL9L protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
B-cell CLL/lymphoma 9-like protein (BCL9L, BL2, Bcl9-2, DLNB11) is a transcriptional activator that was originally identified in silico based on homology to BCL9 (1). BCL9L was subsequently found to play an important role in Wnt/β-catenin signaling by interacting with β-catenin and enhancing the transactivation potential of the β-catenin/TCF complex (2). Research studies show that BCL9L can increase the tumorigenic effect of aberrant Wnt signaling in some cases of colorectal cancer (2). Expression of BCL9L is correlated with tumor progression in colorectal (3) and breast cancer (4). Targeted deletion of BCL9 and BCL9L in the intestinal epithelium resulted in abrogation of Wnt target genes, including those controlling epithelial-mesenchymal transition and stem-cell like properties (5).
Phospho-BCL9L (Ser915) Antibody is directed at a site that was identified at Cell Signaling Technology (CST) using PhosphoScan®, CST's LC-MS/MS platform for modification site discovery. Phosphorylation at Ser915 was discovered using an AMPK substrate antibody. Please visit PhosphoSitePlus®, CST's modification site knowledgebase, at www.phosphosite.org for more information.
