  • Product overview

    Abcam’s ERK1/2 (pT202/Y204) in vitro SimpleStep ELISA™ (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the semi-quantitative measurement of ERK1/2 (pT202/Y204) protein in Human and mouse cells.

    The SimpleStep ELISA™ employs an affinity tag labeled capture antibody and a reporter conjugated detector antibody which immunocapture the sample analyte in solution. This entire complex (capture antibody/analyte/detector antibody) is in turn immobilized via immunoaffinity of an anti-tag antibody coating the well. To perform the assay, samples or standards are added to the wells, followed by the antibody mix. After incubation, the wells are washed to remove unbound material. TMB substrate is added and during incubation is catalyzed by HRP, generating blue coloration. This reaction is then stopped by addition of Stop Solution completing any color change from blue to yellow. Signal is generated proportionally to the amount of bound analyte and the intensity is measured at 450 nm. Optionally, instead of the endpoint reading, development of TMB can be recorded kinetically at 600 nm.

  • ELISA Protocol Summary
  • Example of a typical ERK1/2 (pT202/Y204) cell lysate dilution series. Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.

  • Example of a typical ERK1/2 (pT202/Y204) recombinant protein standard curve. The proportion of total protein that is phosphorylated is unknown - data is indicative only. Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.

  • Linearity of dilution in representative sample matrices. Cellular lysates were prepared at 3 concentrations in common media containing 1X Cell Extraction Buffer PTR. Data from duplicate measurements of ERK1/2 (pT202/Y204) are normalized and plotted.

  • Cell line analysis for Total ERK1/2 from 100 µg/mL preparations of cell extracts. Data from triplicate measurements (mean +/- SD) are plotted and compared to 1X Cell Extraction Buffer PTR (zero).

  • Induction of ERK1/2 (pT202/Y204) phosphorylation in MCF-7 cells in response to EGF treatment. MCF-7 cells were cultured in 96-well tissue culture plates, serum starved and treated (10 min) with a dose-range of EGF before cell lysis. Data from quadruplicate measurements of ERK1/2 (pT202/Y204) are plotted and compared against Total ERK1/2 protein levels. Comparative ERK1/2 (pT202/Y204) and ERK1/2 (Total) data also shown by Western Blot.

Customer reviews and Q&As

p-ERK stimulation in HEK cell lysates

Good Good 4/5 (Ease of Use)
This kit was used to assess the induction of ERK phosphorylation in vitro in HEK cells lysates.
Cells were treated with PMA (0.050 ng/ml) in the presence or abscence of PD98059 (50 uM). Cells were briefly washed with ice cold PBS and lysated. After centrifugation, the supernatant was used as recommended by the kit booklet. The kit was easy to use and would recommend it.
