Overview:

MEK2 is the member of MAPK kinase (MAPKK) family of signaling protein kinases. MEK2 is a dual-specificity kinase that activates the extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) and mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase upon agonist binding to receptors. MEK2 plays a key role in the Ras/Raf/MEK/ERK mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling pathways (1). Approximately 30% of all human cancers have a constitutively activated MAPK pathway, and constitutive activation of MEK2 results in cellular transformation. The ERK/MAP kinase cascade regulates cell growth and differentiation (2).

Specificity:

Recognizes the MEK2 protein


Cross Reactivity:

Western blot of human and mouse MEK2

MEK2 from other species may also be detectable.


Host:

Rabbit


Immunogen:

Synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 392-396 of human MEK2


Purification:

Affinity chromatography


Stability:

Store at 4°C (add 0.1% NaN3) for several months, and at -20°C for longer periods. For optimal storage, aliquot target into smaller quantities after centrifugation and store at recommended temperature. For optimal performance, avoid repeated handling and multiple freeze/thaw cycles.


Sample Data:

Representative western blot with Anti-MEK2 (1:1000) using 20 ng of GST-tagged human recombinant MEK1 and MEK2.


Sample Data:

Representative western blot with Anti-MEK2 (1:1000) using 30 μg of HeLa, HEK-293T, Jurkat, and 3T6 cell lysate.
