p38 MAPK activity of UV-treated or untreated C6 cell extracts was analyzed by IP/kinase assay. Cell extracts were immunoprecipitated with Phospho-p38 MAPK (Thr180/Tyr182) Mouse mAb (Sepharose® Bead Conjugate). In vitro kinase assays were performed using ATF-2 Fusion Protein #9224 as a substrate. Phosphorylation of ATF-2 at Thr71 was measured by Western blot using Phospho-ATF-2 (Thr71) Antibody.

Protocol Id: 27
Phospho-p38 MAPK (Thr180/Tyr182) Mouse mAb (Sepharose® Bead Conjugate) binds only p38 MAPK only when dually phosphorylated at Thr180 and Tyr182. This antibody was immobilized via conjugation of carbohydrates to cross-linked agarose hydrazide beads. This antibody does not significantly cross-react with phosphorylated SAPK/JNK or p44/42 MAPK, or with nonphosphorylated p38 MAPK.
Human, Mouse, Rat, Monkey, S. cerevisiae
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic phosphopeptide corresponding to residues around Thr180/Tyr182 of human p38 MAP kinase.
p38 MAP kinase (MAPK), also called RK (1) or CSBP (2), is the mammalian orthologue of the yeast HOG kinase that participates in a signaling cascade controlling cellular responses to cytokines and stress (1-4). Four isoforms of p38 MAPK, p38α, β, γ (also known as Erk6 or SAPK3), and δ (also known as SAPK4) have been identified. Similar to the SAPK/JNK pathway, p38 MAPK is activated by a variety of cellular stresses including osmotic shock, inflammatory cytokines, lipopolysaccharide (LPS), UV light, and growth factors (1-5). MKK3, MKK6, and SEK activate p38 MAPK by phosphorylation at Thr180 and Tyr182. Activated p38 MAPK has been shown to phosphorylate and activate MAPKAP kinase 2 (3) and to phosphorylate the transcription factors ATF-2 (5), Max (6), and MEF2 (5-8). SB203580 (4-(4-fluorophenyl)-2-(4-methylsulfinylphenyl)-5-(4-pyridyl)-imidazole) is a selective inhibitor of p38 MAPK. This compound inhibits the activation of MAPKAPK-2 by p38 MAPK and subsequent phosphorylation of HSP27 (9). SB203580 inhibits p38 MAPK catalytic activity by binding to the ATP-binding pocket, but does not inhibit phosphorylation of p38 MAPK by upstream kinases (10).
