Flow cytometric analysis of Jurkat cells using MEK1/2 (D1A5) Rabbit mAb (PE Conjugate) (green) compared to Rabbit (DA1E) mAb IgG XP® Isotype Control (PE Conjugate) #5742 (red).
|REACTIVITY||H M R Mk Dm|
This Cell Signaling Technology antibody is conjugated to phycoerythrin (PE) and tested in-house for direct flow cytometry analysis in human cells. This antibody is expected to exhibit the same species cross-reactivity as the unconjugated MEK1/2 (D1A5) Rabbit mAb #8727.
Supplied in PBS (pH 7.2), less than 0.1% sodium azide and 2 mg/ml BSA. Store at 4°C. Do not aliquot the antibody. Protect from light. Do not freeze.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalent grade water.
NOTE: If using whole blood, lyse red blood cells and wash by centrifugation prior to fixation.

MEK1/2 (D1A5) Rabbit mAb (PE Conjugate) recognizes endogenous levels of total MEK1 and MEK2 proteins. This antibody is predicted to cross-react with MEK1/MEK2 orthologs in a variety of species.Species Reactivity:
Human, Mouse, Rat, Monkey, D. melanogasterSpecies predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology:
Hamster, Xenopus, Zebrafish, Bovine, Dog, Pig, C. elegans
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Ala220 of human MEK1 protein.
MEK1 and MEK2, also called MAPK or Erk kinases, are dual-specificity protein kinases that function in a mitogen activated protein kinase cascade controlling cell growth and differentiation (1-3). Activation of MEK1 and MEK2 occurs through phosphorylation of two serine residues at positions 217 and 221, located in the activation loop of subdomain VIII, by Raf-like molecules. MEK1/2 is activated by a wide variety of growth factors and cytokines and also by membrane depolarization and calcium influx (1-4). Constitutively active forms of MEK1/2 are sufficient for the transformation of NIH/3T3 cells or the differentiation of PC-12 cells (4). MEK activates p44 and p42 MAP kinase by phosphorylating both threonine and tyrosine residues at sites located within the activation loop of kinase subdomain VIII.
