Anti-MAPKAP Kinase 2 antibody (ab2311)


  • Product nameAnti-MAPKAP Kinase 2 antibody
    See all MAPKAP Kinase 2 primary antibodies
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to MAPKAP Kinase 2
  • SpecificityTwo isoforms are produced due to alternative splicing of the same gene which differ in their C-terminals. This antibody recognizes both 43 and 60 kDa isoforms, corresponding to the apparent molecular mass of MAPKAPK-2 on SDS-PAGE immunoblots. These 43 kDa and 60 kDa bands can be specifically inhibited by the relevant peptide.
  • Tested applicationsSuitable for: IP, WBmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Mouse, Rat, Cow, Dog, Human

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IP Use a concentration of 4 µg/ml.
WB Use a concentration of 4 µg/ml.


  • 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.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated and activated by MAP kinase.
