Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab55145 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 Use a concentration of 1 - 5 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 52 kDa.
Flow Cyt Use 1µg for 106 cells. ab170191-Mouse monoclonal IgG2a, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.


  • FunctionMay play a role in the response to environmental stress and cytokines. Appears to regulate transcription by phosphorylating EIF4E, thus increasing the affinity of this protein for the 7-methylguanosine-containing mRNA cap.
  • Tissue specificityUbiquitously expressed in all tissues examined. Isoform 2 is expressed at higher levels in the ovary than is isoform 1.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CAMK Ser/Thr protein kinase family.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • Post-translational
    Dual phosphorylation of Thr-244 and Thr-249 activates the kinase. Phosphorylation of Thr-379 activates the kinase.

Anti-MNK2 antibody images

  • ICC/IF image of ab55145 stained Hek293 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde 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 (ab55145, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96879, DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 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.

  • Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab55145 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab55145, 0.5µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG2a [ICIGG2A] (ab91361, 1µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed.
