Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab69537 in the following tested applications.

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

Application Abreviews Notes
WB
ELISA
  • Application notesELISA: Use at an assay dependent dilution.
    IP: Use at an assay dependent dilution.
    WB: Use at a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 49 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 49 kDa).
    Notes: 1µg/mL of ab69537 was sufficient for detection of MEK5 in 20µg of Rat Brain Tissue Extract by ECL immunoblot analysis using Goat ant-Rabbit IgG:HRP as the secondary antibody.

    Not yet tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • FunctionActs as a scaffold for the formation of a ternary MAP3K2/MAP3K3-MAP3K5-MAPK7 signaling complex. Activation of this pathway appear to play a critical role in protecting cells from stress-induced apopotosis, neuronal survival and cardiac development and angiogenesis.
    • Tissue specificityExpressed in many adult tissues. Abundant in heart and skeletal muscle.
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. STE Ser/Thr protein kinase family. MAP kinase kinase subfamily.
      Contains 1 OPR domain.
      Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
    • DomainBinds MAP3K2/MAP3K3 and MAPK7 via non-overlapping residues of the OPR domain. This domain also mediates interactions with SQSTM1 and PARD6A.
    • Post-translational
      modifications
      Activated by phosphorylation on Ser/Thr by MAP kinase kinase kinases.
      Yersinia yopJ may acetylate Ser/Thr residues, preventing phosphorylation and activation, thus blocking the MAPK signaling pathway.
