Anti-Glycogen Synthase pS640 antibody is validated by IHC, Western Blot and ELISA. Human muscle glycogen synthase (GS) is responsible for the biosynthesis of glycogen from phosphorylated glucose units. Mammalian liver and muscle contain GS consisting of four subunits with a total molecular weight of 360,000. GS is subject to regulation through both allosteric and covalent modification and occurs in two forms: the phosphorylated inactive form, and the dephos-phorylated active form. GS is inactivated by the serine/threonine kinase called glycogen synthase kinase-3 that mainly functions to phos-phorylate muscle glycogen synthase. This antibody is specific for the phosphorylated form of GS at S640. Phosphorylation of GS at S640 has been associated with Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome.
