MEK2 (MAP Kinase Kinase 2 or ERK Kinase), a 46 kDa protein kinase, phosphorylates MAP kinases (ERKs) at tyrosine and threonine residues. This phosphorylation results in activation of the MAP kinases. MEK2 is seven amino acids larger and shares 81% identity with MEK1. In cultured cells, MEK2 is activated by serum. In vitro, v-Raf phosphorylates and activates MEK2. It is thought that all of these activated protein kinases are downstream of the Ras signal transduction pathway and represent an integral part of the Ras mitogenic signal. This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis.
Synonyms: MAP Kinase Kinase 2, ERK Kinase
1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
