Mouse anti GSK3 alpha antibody recognizes glycogen synthase kinase-3 alpha, also known as serine/threonine-protein kinase GSK3A, when phosphorylated at serine 21. GSK3 controls several physiological processes, such as modulation of transcription factor AP-1 (Nikolakaki et al. 1993) and CREB (Fiol et al. 1994) as well as glycogen metabolism (Welsh and Proud 1993). The kinase has also been reported to regulate cyclin D1 proteolysis and localization (Diehl et al. 1998). Phosphorylation of GSK3 at serine 21 leads to inactivation of the kinase (Frame et al. 2001) and is associated with poor survival chances in Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) patients (Ruvolo et al. 2015).
