CST's PathScan® Phospho-p44/42 MAPK (Thr202/Tyr204) Sandwich ELISA Antibody Pair is offered as an economical alternative to our PathScan® Phospho-p44/42 MAPK (Thr202/Tyr204) Sandwich ELISA Kit #7177. Capture and detection antibodies (100X stocks) and an HRP-conjugated secondary antibody (1000X stock) are supplied. Sufficient reagents are supplied for 4 x 96 well ELISAs. The Phospho-p44/42 MAPK Rabbit Capture Antibody is coated in PBS overnight in a 96 well microplate. After blocking, cell lysate is added followed by a p44/42 MAPK Mouse Detection Antibody and an HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Antibody. HRP substrate (TMB) is added for color development. The magnitude of the absorbance for this developed color is proportional to the quantity of p44/42 MAPK phosphorylated at Thr202/Tyr204.Antibodies in kit are custom formulations specific to kit.
Specificity / Sensitivity
For Antibody Pair specificity and sensitivity, please refer to the corresponding PathScan® Sandwich ELISA Kit. Note: This antibody pair detects proteins from the indicated species, as determined through in-house testing, but may also detect homologous proteins from other species.
The relationship between the protein concentration of the lysate from untreated and PDGF-treated NIH/3T3 cells and the absorbance at 450 nm using PathScan® Phospho-p44/42 MAPK (Thr202/Tyr204) Sandwich ELISA Antibody Pair #7246 is shown. NIH/3T3 cells were treated with PDGF (100 ng/mL) for 5 minutes at 37ºC and then lysed.
Mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) are a widely conserved family of serine/threonine protein kinases involved in many cellular programs, such as cell proliferation, differentiation, motility, and death. The p44/42 MAPK (Erk1/2) signaling pathway can be activated in response to a diverse range of extracellular stimuli including mitogens, growth factors, and cytokines (1-3), and research investigators consider it an important target in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer (4). Upon stimulation, a sequential three-part protein kinase cascade is initiated, consisting of a MAP kinase kinase kinase (MAPKKK or MAP3K), a MAP kinase kinase (MAPKK or MAP2K), and a MAP kinase (MAPK). Multiple p44/42 MAP3Ks have been identified, including members of the Raf family, as well as Mos and Tpl2/COT. MEK1 and MEK2 are the primary MAPKKs in this pathway (5,6). MEK1 and MEK2 activate p44 and p42 through phosphorylation of activation loop residues Thr202/Tyr204 and Thr185/Tyr187, respectively. Several downstream targets of p44/42 have been identified, including p90RSK (7) and the transcription factor Elk-1 (8,9). p44/42 are negatively regulated by a family of dual-specificity (Thr/Tyr) MAPK phosphatases, known as DUSPs or MKPs (10), along with MEK inhibitors, such as U0126 and PD98059.
