Antibody Host Species: Rabbit
Antibody Immunogen Source: Human MKK3 (MAP2K3, MEK3) sequence peptide Cat. No.: PE-04ABS99

Antibody Immunogen Sequence: YLVD(pS)VAK(bA)C

Antibody Immunogen Description: Corresponds to amino acid residues Y214 to K221; In the protein kinase catalytic domain activation T loop region between subdomains VII and VIII.

Production Method: The immunizing peptide was produced by solid phase synthesis on a multipep peptide synthesizer and purified by reverse-phase hplc chromatography. Purity was assessed by analytical hplc and the amino acid sequence confirmed by mass spectrometry analysis. This peptide was coupled to KLH prior to immunization into rabbits. New Zealand White rabbits were subcutaneously injected with KLH-coupled immunizing peptide every 4 weeks for 4 months. The sera from these animals was applied onto an agarose column to which the immunogen peptide was thio-linked. Antibody was eluted from the column with 0.1 M glycine, pH 2.5. Subsequently, the antibody solution was neutralized to pH 7.0 with saturated Tris.This antibody was also subject to negative purification over phosphotyrosine-agarose.

Antibody Modification: Unconjugated. Contact KInexus if you are interest in having the antibody biotinylated or coupled with fluorescent dyes.

Scientific Background: MKK3 (MAP2K3, MEK3) is a Dual specificity protein kinase of the STE group and STE7 family. MKK3 is activated by cytokines and environmental stress in vivo. Phosphorylation of S218 and T222 increases its phosphotransferase activity. S218A and T222A substitutions are involved in inactivation. S218E and T222E mutations are associated in constitutive activation. It catalyzes the concomitant phosphorylation of a threonine and a tyrosine residue in the activation T loops of the p38 MAP kinase isoforms. Defects in the MKK3 gene may be involved colon cancer.
