    See all MAPKAP Kinase 2 primary antibodies
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to MAPKAP Kinase 2
  • Specificityab63574 detects endogenous levels of total MAPKAP Kinase 2 protein. The immunogen sequence used to produce ab63574 is 77% identical to the corresponding region of MAPKAP Kinase 3. Customer correspondance suggests ab63574 may cross react with human MAPKAP Kinase 3 but this has not been confirmed.

  • FunctionIts physiological substrate seems to be the small heat shock protein (HSP27/HSP25). In vitro can phosphorylate glycogen synthase at 'Ser-7' and tyrosine hydroxylase (on 'Ser-19' and 'Ser-40'). This kinase phosphorylates Ser in the peptide sequence, Hyd-X-R-X(2)-S, where Hyd is a large hydrophobic residue (By similarity). Mediates both ERK and p38 MAPK/MAPK14 dependent neutrophil responses. Participates in TNF alpha-stimulated exocytosis of secretory vesicles in neutrophils. Plays a role in phagocytosis-induced respiratory burst activity.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in all tissues examined.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CAMK Ser/Thr protein kinase family.
