Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab33866 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|WB||1/1000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 36 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 37 kDa).|
|IP||1/20 - 1/50.|
FunctionCatalyzes the concomitant phosphorylation of a threonine and a tyrosine residue in MAP kinase p38 exclusively.
Tissue specificityIsoform 2 is only expressed in skeletal muscle. Isoform 1 is expressed in skeletal muscle, heart, and in lesser extent in liver or pancreas.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. STE Ser/Thr protein kinase family. MAP kinase kinase subfamily.
Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
Acetylation of Ser-207 and Thr-211 by Yersinia yopJ prevents phosphorylation and activation, thus blocking the MAPK signaling pathway.

Lanes 1, 5 and 9: Wild-type HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)
Lanes 2, 6 and 10: MEK6 knockout HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)
Lanes 3, 7 and 11: HeLa cell lysate (20 µg)
Lanes 4, 8 and 12: A431 cell lysate (20 µg)
Lanes 1, 2, 3 and 4: Green signal from target – ab33866 observed at 37 kDa
Lanes 5, 6, 7 and 8: Red signal from loading control – ab18058 observed at 130 kDa

ab33866 (unpurified) was shown to specifically react with MEK6 when MEK6 knockout samples were used. Wild-type and MEK6 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab33866 and ab18058 (loading control to Vinculin) were diluted 1/10 000 and 1/2000 respectively and incubated overnight at 4ºC. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preadsorbed (ab216773) and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preadsorbed (ab216776) secondary antibodies at 1/10 000 dilution for 1 h at room temperature before imaging.
