ab172730 - Rabbit monoclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 44, 42 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 43, 41 kDa).
Involved in both the initiation and regulation of meiosis, mitosis, and postmitotic functions in differentiated cells by phosphorylating a number of transcription factors such as ELK1. Phosphorylates EIF4EBP1; required for initiation of translation. Phosphorylates microtubule-associated protein 2 (MAP2). Phosphorylates SPZ1 (By similarity). Phosphorylates heat shock factor protein 4 (HSF4) and ARHGEF2. Acts as a transcriptional repressor. Binds to a [GC]AAA[GC] consensus sequence. Repress the expression of interferon gamma-induced genes. Seems to bind to the promoter of CCL5, DMP1, IFIH1, IFITM1, IRF7, IRF9, LAMP3, OAS1, OAS2, OAS3 and STAT1. Transcriptional activity is independent of kinase activity.
Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CMGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family. MAP kinase subfamily. Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
The TXY motif contains the threonine and tyrosine residues whose phosphorylation activates the MAP kinases.
Dually phosphorylated on Thr-185 and Tyr-187, which activates the enzyme. Dephosphorylated by PTPRJ at Tyr-187.
Recombinant full length ERK1 protein (ab43623) contains aa1-379.
Blocking/Dilution buffer: 5% NFDM/TBST.

Ab184699 staining ERK1 + ERK2 in HeLa cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with 0.5% Triton X-100. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/500 in PBS) for 1 hour at 22°C. A Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (Alexa Fluor® 488) preadsorbed (ab150081) was used as the secondary antibody.
Recombinant full length ERK2 protein (ab43625) contains aa1-360.

Secondary Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG, (H+L),Peroxidase conjugated at 1/1000 dilution
Immunofluorescent analysis of 4% paraformaldehyde-fixed, 0.1% Triton X-100 permeabilized HeLa (Human epithelial cells from cervix adenocarcinoma) cells labeling ERK1 + ERK2 with ab184699 at 1/250 dilution, followed by Goat anti-rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488) (ab150077) secondary antibody at 1/500 dilution (green). Confocal image showing both nuclear and cytoplasmic staining on HeLa cell line. The nuclear counter stain is DAPI (blue). Tubulin is detected with ab7291 (anti-Tubulin mouse mAb) at 1/1000 dilution and ab150120 (AlexaFluor®594 Goat anti-Mouse secondary) at 1/500 dilution (red). The negative controls are as follows: -ve control 1: ab184699 at 1/250 dilution followed by ab150120 (AlexaFluor®594 Goat anti-Mouse secondary) at 1/500 dilution. -ve control 2: ab7291 (anti-Tubulin mouse mAb) at 1/1000 dilution followed by ab150077 (Alexa Fluor®488 Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L) at 1/500 dilution.
Flow cytometric analysis of A431 (Human epidermoid carcinoma) cells labeling ERK1 + ERK2 with ab184699 at 1/440 dilution (red) compared with a rabbit monoclonal IgG isotype control (black) and an unlabelled control (cells without incubation with primary antibody and secondary antibody; blue). Goat anti rabbit IgG (FITC) at 1/150 dilution was used as the secondary antibody.
ERK1 + ERK2 were immunoprecipitated from 1mg of PC-12 (Rat adrenal gland pheochromocytoma) whole cell extract with ab184699 at 1/70 dilution. Western blot was performed from the immunoprecipitate using ab184699 at 1/5000 dilution. Anti-Rabbit IgG (HRP), specific to the non-reduced form of IgG, was used as secondary antibody at 1/1500 dilution.
Lane 1: PC-12 whole cell extract. Lane 2: PBS instead of PC-12 whole cell extract. Blocking and dilution buffer and concentration: 5% NFDM/TBST.
44kDa band represents ERK1. 42kDa band represents ERK2.
