The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 0.01 - 0.03 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 75 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 83 kDa).
FunctionSerine/threonine-protein kinase that acts downstream of ERK (MAPK1/ERK2 and MAPK3/ERK1) signaling and mediates mitogenic and stress-induced activation of transcription factors, regulates translation, and mediates cellular proliferation, survival, and differentiation. May function as tumor suppressor in epithelial ovarian cancer cells.
Tissue specificityWidely expressed with higher expression in lung, skeletal muscle, brain, uterus, ovary, thyroid and prostate.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. AGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family. S6 kinase subfamily. Contains 1 AGC-kinase C-terminal domain. Contains 2 protein kinase domains.
Post-translational modificationsActivated by phosphorylation at Ser-218 by PDPK1. Autophosphorylated on Ser-377, as part of the activation process. May be phosphorylated at Thr-356 and Ser-360 by MAPK1/ERK2 and MAPK3/ERK1. N-terminal myristoylation results in an activated kinase in the absence of added growth factors.
