|Description||Other names: MAP2K1, MEK1, PRKMK1, Dual specificity mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase 1, ERK activator kinase 1,MAPK/ERK kinase 1|
|Characteristics||Rabbit Monoclonal Antibody|
|Specificity||A synthetic phospho-peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Ser218 and Ser222 of human MEK1 was used as immunogen. The antibody only detects MEK1 phosphorylated on Serine 218 and 222.|
|Molecular Weight||45 kDA|
Background: MEK1 and MEK2 (MAPK kinase 1/2, or ERK kinase 1/2) are mitogen-activated protein kinases that stimulate MAP kinase activity, playing a role in both cell growth and differentiation (1,2). MEK itself is activated via phosphorylation at serines 217/218 and 221/222 by upstream activator kinases, including c-raf, mos and MEK kinase (3,4). MEK1 and MEK2 are activated by a wide variety of growth factors and cytokines, and also by membrane depolarization and calcium influx (5).
