Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab36722 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 1/500 - 1/1000. Predicted molecular weight: 37 kDa.
ELISA 1/10000.
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration.
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 1 - 5 µg/ml.


  • FunctionCatalyzes the concomitant phosphorylation of a threonine and a tyrosine residue in MAP kinase p38 exclusively.
  • Tissue specificityIsoform 2 is only expressed in skeletal muscle. Isoform 1 is expressed in skeletal muscle, heart, and in lesser extent in liver or pancreas.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. STE Ser/Thr protein kinase family. MAP kinase kinase subfamily.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • Post-translational
    Weakly autophosphorylated.
    Acetylation of Ser-207 and Thr-211 by Yersinia yopJ prevents phosphorylation and activation, thus blocking the MAPK signaling pathway.

  • ICC/IF image of ab36722 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab36722, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

My apologies for the delay, I asked the laboratory if they had further suggestions, and they were unable to help more, however they stated that they have not tried Hela cells, only MDA-MB- 435 cells treated with UV. They have however noticed that the t...

Thank you for providing your protocol details, I believe that it is very good and have have only a few suggestions to make: - you do not detail how long you incubated the primary antibodies for: I would recommend doing an overnight incubation, if you...

Thank you for your enquiry. I am sorry you are experiencing problems with two of our antibodies; as you can detect total levels of the proteins this suggests that your extraction protocol is adequate; it could be that the problem lies with the anti...
