General notesab94122 is a 293T cell transfected lysate in which Human JNK1 has been transiently over-expressed using a pCMV-JNK1 plasmid. The lysate is provided in 1X Sample Buffer.

BackgroundDomain: The TXY motif contains the threonine and tyrosine residues whose phosphorylation activates the MAP kinases.
Function: Responds to activation by environmental stress and pro-inflammatory cytokines by phosphorylating a number of transcription factors, primarily components of AP-1 such as JUN, JDP2 and ATF2 and thus regulates AP-1 transcriptional activity. In T-cells, JNK1 and JNK2 are required for polarized differentiation of T-helper cells into Th1 cells (By similarity). Phosphorylates heat shock factor protein 4 (HSF4).
JNK1 isoforms display different binding patterns: beta-1 preferentially binds to c-Jun, whereas alpha-1, alpha-2, and beta-2 have a similar low level of binding to both c-Jun or ATF2. However, there is no correlation between binding and phosphorylation, which is achieved at about the same efficiency by all isoforms.
PTM: Dually phosphorylated on Thr-183 and Tyr-185, which activates the enzyme.
Similarity: Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CMGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family. MAP kinase subfamily.
Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
