Western blot analysis of extracts from control HEK293 cells (lane 1) or TAK1 knockout HEK293 cells (lane 2) using TAK1 antibody #4505. The absence of signal in the TAK1-knockout HEK293 cells confirms specificity of the antibody for TAK1.
Western blot analysis of extracts from untreated or IL-1 treated 293-IL-1R cells, and extracts from HeLa, NIH/3T3, C6, and COS cells, using TAK1 Antibody.

TAK1 Antibody detects endogenous levels of total TAK1 protein.
Human, Mouse, Rat, Monkey, Bovine
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues near the carboxy-terminus of human TAK1. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
TAK1 is a mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase that can be activated by TGF-β, bone morphogenetic protein and other cytokines including IL-1 (1,2). In vivo activation of TAK1 requires association with TAK1 binding protein 1 (TAB1), which triggers phosphorylation of TAK1 (3,4). Another adaptor protein, TAB2, links TAK1 with TRAF6 and mediates TAK1 activation upon IL-1 stimulation (5). Once activated, TAK1 phosphorylates MAPK kinases MKK4 and MKK3/6, which activate p38 MAPK and JNK, respectively. In addition, TAK1 activates the NF-κB pathway by interacting with TRAF6 and phosphorylating the NF-κB inducing kinase (NIK) (2).
