Alexa Fluor® 647 Mouse anti-MEK1

Analysis of MEK1 in HeLaS3 cells.  HeLaS3 cells were either transfected with MEK1 RNAi (open histogram) or untreated (shaded histogram).  The cells were fixed (BD Cytofix™ Fixation buffer, Cat. No. 554655) for 10 minutes at 37°C, then permeabilized (BD Phosflow™ Perm Buffer III, Cat. No. 558050) on ice for 30 minutes, and then stained with Alexa Fluor® 647 Mouse anti-MEK1 (Cat. No. 560101).  Down-regulation of MEK1 expression is evident in the RNAi-transfected cells.  Flow cytometry was performed on a BD™ LSR II flow cytometry system.

准备和存储

Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 647 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 647 was removed.

25/MEK1

MEK1 (MapK/ERK Kinase 1) is a 45-kDa member of the MEK family of dual specificity kinases.  MEK is activated by a variety of cellular serine/threonine kinases including c-Raf, A-Raf, c-mos, and MEK Kinase-1.  Activated MEK phosphorylates MAP kinase (ERK) at threonine and tyrosine residues.  This results in activation of ERK and its signaling pathway. MEK is highly specific for ERK and various MEKs preferentially phosphorylate individual ERK isoforms.  MEK1 only activates ERK1 and ERK2.  This specificity may result from variations in ERK regions that are known as the phosphorylation lip and kinase backbone.  MEK's localization is cytoplasmic, but mitogenic stimulation induces a mass translocation to the nucleus.  Mechanisms behind this nuclear translocation remain unknown.  However, MEK contains an N-terminal nuclear export signal (NES) that mediates its rapid exodus from the nucleus and restores its unstimulated cellular distribution.

The 25/MEK1 monoclonal antibody recognizes MEK1, regardless of phosphorylation status.

The specificity of this antibody conjugate for flow cytometric analysis was validated by confirming that RNA-mediated interference (RNAi) of the specific protein reduced the staining of the cells (see figure). Furthermore, the capacity of the RNAi to down-regulate the expression of the relevant protein was confirmed by western blot analysis.

Alexa Fluor™ 647
Alexa Fluor™ 647 Dye is part of the BD red family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 653-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 669-nm. Alexa Fluor 647 is designed to be excited by the Red laser (627-640 nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520-nm (e.g., a 660/20 nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
