Target

  • Function

    Responds 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 specificity

    Brain, heart, placenta, pancreas and skeletal muscle. Expressed to a lesser extent in lung, liver and kidney.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CMGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family. MAP kinase subfamily.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • Domain

    The TXY motif contains the threonine and tyrosine residues whose phosphorylation activates the MAP kinases.
  • Post-translational
    modifications

    Dually phosphorylated on Thr-180 and Tyr-182, which activates the enzyme.
    Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.

Images

  • This WB data was generated using the same anti-p38 antibody clone [E229] in a different buffer formulation (cat# ab170099).

    Lane 1: Wild-type HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 2: p38 knockout HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg) 
    Lane 3: HeLa cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 4: Jurkat cell lysate (20 µg) 
    Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab170099 observed at 40 kDa. Red - loading control, ab8245, observed at 37 kDa.
    ab170099 was shown to specifically react with p38 when p38 knockout samples were used. Wild-type and p38 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab170099 and

    ab8245 (loading control to GAPDH) were diluted 1/1000 and 1/2000 respectively and incubated overnight at 4°C. 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.

  • Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence analysis of HeLa(Human epithelial cell line from cervix adenocarcinoma) cells labeling p38 with ab170099 at 1/250. Cells were fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with 0.1% tritonX-100. ab150077, an Alexa Fluor® 488 Goat anti-Rabbit IgG (1/1000) was used as the secondary antibody. The cells were co-stained with ab195889, an anti-alpha tubulin antibody [DM1A] microtubule marker (Alexa Fluor® 594) at 1/200. Nuclei counterstained with DAPI (blue).

    Confocal image shows nuclear and cytoplasmic staining on HeLa cell line.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab170099).

  • ab170099 (purified) at 1/20 immunoprecipitating p38 in Jurkat whole cell lysate. 10 ug of cell lysate was present in the input. For western blotting, a HRP-conjugated Veriblot for IP Detection Reagent (ab131366) was used for detection at 1/1,500 dilution. A rabbit monoclonal IgG (ab172730) was used intead of ab128913 as a negative control (Lane 3).

    Blocking buffer and concentration: 5% NFDM/TBST.

    Diluting buffer and concentration: 5% NFDM /TBST.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab170099).

  • Flow Cytometry analysis of HeLa cells labelling p38 with purified ab170099 at 1/40 (red). Cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde. A FITC-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (1/500) was used as the secondary antibody. Black - Isotype control, rabbit monoclonal IgG. Blue - Unlabelled control, cells without incubation with primary and secondary antibodies.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab170099).
