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.

Mnk1 (C4C1) Rabbit mAb detects endogenous levels of total Mnk1 protein.Species Reactivity:
Mnk1 (C4C1) Rabbit mAb is produced by immunizing rabbits with a synthetic peptide corresponding to the sequence of human Mnk1.
Mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) are activated by various extracellular signals and play crucial roles in regulating cell proliferation, differentiation, survival, and apoptosis (1). MAPK-interacting kinases (Mnks or MKNKs) are direct downstream substrates of MAPK and were first discovered independently by the work of Fukunaga and Hunter (2) and Waskiewicz and Cooper (3). There are 2 Mnks in human, termed Mnk1 and Mnk2. Both Mnks possess a MAPK-binding domain that allows them to bind to and then to be phosphorylated by Erk and p38. The phosphorylation in the T-loop of Mnks stimulates their in vitro kinase activity toward a substrate, eukaryotic initiation factor-4E (eIF4E) (2,3). eIF4E is a key component of the translational machinery mediating the initiation of translation, but how phosphorylation of eIF4E regulates translation initiation is still under investigation (4).
