  • FunctionResponds to activation by environmental stress, pro-inflammatory cytokines and lipopolysaccharide (LPS) by phosphorylating a number of transcription factors, such as ELK1 and ATF2 and several downstream kinases, such as MAPKAPK2 and MAPKAPK5. Plays a critical role in the production of some cytokines, for example IL-6. May play a role in stabilization of EPO mRNA during hypoxic stress. Isoform Mxi2 activation is stimulated by mitogens and oxidative stress and only poorly phosphorylates ELK1 and ATF2. Isoform Exip may play a role in the early onset of apoptosis.
  • Tissue specificityBrain, heart, placenta, pancreas and skeletal muscle. Expressed to a lesser extent in lung, liver and kidney.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CMGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family. MAP kinase subfamily.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • DomainThe TXY motif contains the threonine and tyrosine residues whose phosphorylation activates the MAP kinases.
  • Post-translational
    Dually phosphorylated on Thr-180 and Tyr-182, which activates the enzyme.
    Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.

Anti-p38 (phospho Y182) antibody images

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded human colon carcinoma tissue using ab47363. Left hand image without immunising peptide; right hand image with immunising peptide.
  • All lanes : Anti-p38 (phospho Y182) antibody (ab47363)

    Lane 1 : K562 cells, treated with UV

    Predicted band size : 41 kDa
  • ICC/IF image of ab47363 stained HepG2 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 ab47363 at 5µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was DyLight® 488 goat anti- rabbit (ab96899) 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.
