Synthetic peptide corresponding to Human MEK3 (phospho S189/T193) + MEK6 (phospho S207/T211).
Mitogen Activated Protein Kinase Kinases 3 and 6 (MEK 3/6 or MKK 3/6) are 42 kDa members of a tyrosine/threonine protein kinase family that activate p38, which is part of the inflammation/stress signaling pathway. Phosphorylation of MEK3 and 6 by MEKK1 on serine 189 and threonine 193 (serine 207 and threonine 211 for MEK6) in the catalytic domain activates the proteins and enables them to phosphorylate p38.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab4759 in the following tested applications.

Peptide Competition: Extracts prepared from background extracts with Mal-E tagged fusion protein expressing MEK 6 left inactivated (6) or with MEKK added for activation (1-5) were resolved by SDS-PAGE on a 10% polyacrylamide gel and transferred to PVDF. Membranes were blocked with a 5% BSA-TBST buffer overnight at 4oC, then were incubated with 0.50 µg/mL ab4759 antibody for two hours at room temperature in a 3% BSA-TBST buffer, following prior incubation with: no peptide (1, 6), the non-phosphopeptide corresponding to the phosphopeptide immunogen (2), a generic hosphoserine-containing peptide (3), a generic phosphothreonine-containing peptide (4), or the phosphopeptide immunogen (5). After washing, the membrane was incubated with goat F(ab"e;)2 anti-rabbit IgG alkaline phosphatase and signals were detected. The data show that only the phosphopeptide corresponding to MEK3/6 [pSpT189/193]/[pSpT207/211] blocks the antibody signal, demonstrating the specificity of the antibody. Please note that the Mal-E-tagged fusion protein expressing MEK6 runs at ~81 kDa.
