Purified Mouse Anti-p38 MAPK (pT180/pY182)
Purified Mouse Anti-p38 MAPK (pT180/pY182)

Western blot analysis for p38 MAPK (pT180/pY182).  HeLa cells (Human cervical epitheloid carcinoma; ATCC CCL-2) were either left untreated (lane 1) or treated (lane 2) with 25 µg/ml anisomycin, an antibiotic and protein synthesis inhibitor known to activate signal transduction pathways, for 15 minutes at 37°C. The top panel was probed with a mouse anti-p38α antibody (Cat. No. 611532)  and the bottom was probed with the mouse anti-p38 MAPK (pT180/pY182) antibody at a 1:2500 dilution.  The target band in each panel is observable at 38-42 kD.

Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at -20°C. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.

Recommended Assay Procedures

Bioimaging

1. Seed the cells in appropriate culture medium at ~10,000 cells per well in a BD Falcon™ 96-well Imaging Plate (Cat. No. 353219) and culture overnight.

2. Remove the culture medium from the wells, and fix the cells by adding 100 μl of BD Cytofix™ Fixation Buffer (Cat. No. 554655) to each well.  Incubate for 10 minutes at room temperature (RT).

3. Remove the fixative from the wells, and permeabilize the cells using either BD Perm Buffer III, 90% methanol, or Triton™ X-100:

a. Add 100 μl of -20°C 90% methanol or Perm Buffer III (Cat. No. 558050) to each well and incubate for 5 minutes at RT.

     OR     b. Add 100 μl of 0.1% Triton™ X-100 to each well and incubate for 5 minutes at RT.

4. Remove the permeabilization buffer, and wash the wells twice with 100 μl of 1× PBS.

5. Remove the PBS, and block the cells by adding 100 μl of BD Pharmingen™ Stain Buffer (FBS) (Cat. No. 554656) to each well. Incubate for 30 min. at RT.

6. Remove the blocking buffer and add 50 μl of the optimally titrated primary antibody (diluted in Stain Buffer) to each well, and incubate 1 hr.

7. Remove the primary antibody, and wash the wells three times with 100 μl of 1× PBS.

8. Remove the PBS, and add the second step reagent at its optimally titrated concentration in 50 μl to each well, and incubate in the dark for 1 hr.

9. Remove the second step reagent, and wash the wells three times with 100 μl of 1× PBS.

10. Remove the PBS, and counter-stain the nuclei by adding 200 μl per well of 2 μg/ml Hoechst 33342 (e.g., Sigma-Aldrich Cat. No. B2261) in 1× PBS to each well at least 15 minutes before imaging.

11. View and analyze the cells on an appropriate imaging instrument.

36/p38 (pT180/pY182)

Activation of the immune and inflammatory responses often involves the recognition of bacterial endotoxin (lipopolysaccharide or LPS).  Binding of LPS by monocytes results in the production and release of proinflammatory cytokines, such as IL-1 and TNF.  LPS-induced signaling cascades involve members of the Ser/Thr protein kinase family known as the Mitogen Activated Protein Kinases (MAPKs).  MAPK signal transduction pathways mediate the effects of various extracellular stimuli on biological processes such as proliferation, differentiation, and death.  The p38 MAPKs include p38α (MAPK14), β (MAPK11), γ (MAPK12), and δ (MAPK13).  These Ser/Thr kinases are activated by dual phosphorylation on threonine (T) and tyrosine (Y) within the motif Thr-Gly-Tyr located in kinase subdomain VIII.  Activation of p38 MAPK is mediated specifically by the MAP Kinase Kinases, MKK3, MKK4, and MKK6.  This leads to the activation of multiple transcription factors (NF-κB, ATF-2, Elk-1, and CHOP) that induce expression of many different genes, including proinflammatory cytokine genes.  Thus, p38 MAPKs are central kinases in multiple signal transduction pathways.

The 36/p38 (pT180/pY182) monoclonal antibody recognizes the conserved dual phosphorylated site pT180/pY182 of p38α, β, γ, and δ.

Purified
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.
