Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 88 kDa. This antibody has been tested in Western blot against the recombinant peptide used as an immunogen. We have no data on detection of endogenous protein.
ELISA 1/2000 - 1/5000.

Target

  • FunctionPlays a role in various cellular processes such as proliferation, differentiation and cell survival. The upstream activator of MAPK7 is the MAPK kinase MAP2K5. Upon activation, it translocates to the nucleus and phosphorylates various downstream targets including MEF2C. EGF activates MAPK7 through a Ras-independent and MAP2K5-dependent pathway. May have a role in muscle cell differentiation. May be important for endothelial function and maintenance of blood vessel integrity. MAP2K5 and MAPK7 interact specifically with one another and not with MEK1/ERK1 or MEK2/ERK2 pathways.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in many adult tissues. Abundant in heart, placenta, lung, kidney and skeletal muscle. Not detectable in liver.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CMGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family. MAP kinase subfamily.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • DomainThe second proline-rich region may interact with actin targeting the kinase to a specific location in the cell.
    The TXY motif contains the threonine and tyrosine residues whose phosphorylation activates the MAP kinases.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Dually phosphorylated on Thr-219 and Tyr-221, which activates the enzyme (By similarity). Autophosphorylated in vitro on threonine and tyrosine residues when the C-terminal part of the kinase, which could have a regulatory role, is absent.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Nucleus. Translocates to the nucleus upon activation.
