Reprobing of an existing membrane is a convenient means to immunoblot for multiple proteins independently when only a limited amount of sample is available. It should be noted that for the best possible results a fresh blot is always recommended. Reprobing can be a valuable method but with each reprobing of a blot there is potential for increased background signal. Additionally, it is recommended that you verify the removal of the first antibody complex prior to reprobing so that signal attributed to binding of the new antibody is not leftover signal from the first immunoblotting experiment. This can be done by re-exposing the blot to ECL reagents and making sure there is no signal prior to adding the next primary antibody.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalently purified water.

Protocol Id: 10
MLK3 Antibody detects endogenous levels of total MLK3 protein. This antibody does not cross-react with MLK1, MLK2 and other mixed lineage kinases.Species Reactivity:
Human, Mouse, Rat, Hamster, Monkey
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues near the carboxy terminus of human MLK3. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Mixed lineage kinase 3 (MLK3) is a serine/threonine kinase that has an amino-terminal SH3 domain followed by the kinase domain and two leucine zippers, a cdc42/Rac1 binding (CRIB) domain and several other domains/motifs at the carboxy-terminal region. CRIB triggers the dimerization of MLK3 via its tandem leucine zippers, followed by the intramolecular phosphorylation and subsequent activation of MLK3 (1,2). Autophosphorylation of Thr277 and Ser281 is essential for MLK3 kinase activity (3). Ser281 is also phosphorylated by HPK in an in vitro kinase assay (3). MLK3 functions as a MAPKKK of the SAPK/JNK stress pathway by directly phosphorylating SEK1/MKK4 and MKK7, although it is controversial whether MLK3 is involved in p38 stress pathway activation (1,4). MLK3 also functions as an IκB kinase and mediates the activation of the transcriptional factor NF-κB stimulated by CD3/CD28, suggesting a role for MLK3 in immune and inflammatory responses (5).
