|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||50112 Da|
|Other Names||Dual specificity mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase 5, MAP kinase kinase 5, MAPKK 5, MAPK/ERK kinase 5, MEK 5, MAP2K5, MEK5, MKK5, PRKMK5|
|Target/Specificity||This MAP2K5 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 127-156 amino acids from human MAP2K5.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||MAP2K5 Antibody (S149) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||MEK5, MKK5, PRKMK5|
|Function||Acts as a scaffold for the formation of a ternary MAP3K2/MAP3K3-MAP3K5-MAPK7 signaling complex. Activation of this pathway appears to play a critical role in protecting cells from stress-induced apoptosis, neuronal survival and cardiac development and angiogenesis.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in many adult tissues. Abundant in heart and skeletal muscle|

MAP2K5 is a dual specificity protein kinase that belongs to the MAP kinase kinase family. It specifically interacts with and activates MAPK7/ERK5. This kinase itself can be phosphorylated and activated by MAP3K3/MEKK3, as well as by atypical protein kinase C isoforms (aPKCs). The signal cascade mediated by MAP2K5 is involved in growth factor stimulated cell proliferation and muscle cell differentiation.
