Target

  • Function
    Catalyzes the concomitant phosphorylation of a threonine and a tyrosine residue in a Thr-Glu-Tyr sequence located in MAP kinases. Activates ERK1 and ERK2 MAP kinases.
  • Tissue specificity
    Widely expressed, with extremely low levels in brain.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in MAP2K1 are a cause of cardiofaciocutaneous syndrome (CFC syndrome) [MIM:115150]; also known as cardio-facio-cutaneous syndrome. CFC syndrome is characterized by a distinctive facial appearance, heart defects and mental retardation. Heart defects include pulmonic stenosis, atrial septal defects and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Some affected individuals present with ectodermal abnormalities such as sparse, friable hair, hyperkeratotic skin lesions and a generalized ichthyosis-like condition. Typical facial features are similar to Noonan syndrome. They include high forehead with bitemporal constriction, hypoplastic supraorbital ridges, downslanting palpebral fissures, a depressed nasal bridge, and posteriorly angulated ears with prominent helices. The inheritance of CFC syndrome is autosomal dominant.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. STE Ser/Thr protein kinase family. MAP kinase kinase subfamily.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Phosphorylation on Ser/Thr by MAP kinase kinase kinases (RAF or MEKK1) regulates positively the kinase activity.
    Acetylation by Yersinia yopJ prevents phosphorylation and activation, thus blocking the MAPK signaling pathway.

Images

  • ab193895 staining MEK1 in HeLa cells. The cells were fixed with 100% methanol (10 min) and then blocked in 1% BSA/10% normal goat serum/0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Triton X-100 for 1hr. The cells were then incubated with ab193985 at a working diltuion of 1 in 50 (shown in green) and ab7291 (Mouse monoclonal [DM1A] to alpha Tubulin) at 1µg/ml overnight at +4°C, followed by a further incubation at room temperature for 1hr with an AlexaFluor® 594 Goat anti-mouse IgG (H&L - preadsorbed) secondary (ab150120) at 2 μg/ml (shown in pseudo-color red). Nuclear DNA was labelled in blue with DAPI.

    This product gave a positive signal in 4% formaldehyde (10 min) fixed HeLa cells under the same testing conditions.

    Image was taken with a Confocal microscope (Leica micro-systems, TCS SP8).

  • Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab193985 (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 (ab193985, 0.2μl/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit IgG (monoclonal) (Alexa Fluor® 488) (0.1μg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control.

    Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 20mW Argon ion laser (488nm) and 525/30 bandpass filter.

    This antibody gave a positive signal in HeLa fixed with 4% formaldehyde (10 min)/permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min used under the same conditions.
