Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to 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.

Antibody Details

The mitogen activated protein (MAP) kinases mediate signal transduction pathways involved in cellular growth and differentiation. These MAP kinases, including ERK1 and ERK2, are activated by phosphorylation on Tyr and Thr by MEK (MAP and ERK Kinase). Regulation of the resulting physiological effects of MAP Kinase activation is affected in part by MAP Kinase phosphatases (MKPs). These phosphatases have dual specificity, dephosphorylating both the tyrosine and threonine residues on MAP kinases. MKP2, which is widely expressed in human tissues, specifically dephosphorylates activated ERKs and JNK. These phosphatases have overlapping substrate specificities for the three known families of MAP kinases - p38, ERK, and JNK. All of the known MKPs contain a highly conserved carboxyl-terminal catalytic domain flanked by two CH2 (CDC25 homology 2) domains.

Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
