Phospho-S6-Ribosomal Protein (Ser240/244) (CD10) rabbit mAb FITC Conjugate
Ribosomal protein S6 kinase is one of two parallel signaling pathways downstream of mTOR, with the other being 4E-BP1. mTOR phosphorylates and activates S6 kinase, which then phosphorylates ribosomal protein S6. The pathway regulates cell growth and cell cycle progression. The identified phosphorylation sites of S6 are Ser235, Ser236, Ser240, Ser244, and Ser247, which are evolutionarily conserved in higher eukaryotes. Ser236 has been proposed as the primary phosphorylation site. Studies using S6 knockin mice, where all five phosphorylation site serine residues are replaced by alanine, have provided extensive detail on S6 function. These studies support the role phosphorylated S6 plays in regulation of cell size, glucose homeostasis, and protein synthesis.
