ERK1/2 are members of the mitogen-activated kinases (MAPKs) that are serine/threonine protein kinases. ERK1/2 can be activated by a range of extracellular stimuli, such as mitogen, growth factors, neurotransmitters, chemokines, and cytokines, through receptor tyrosine kinases (RTK), G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), or protein kinase C (PKC). Upon stimulation, ERK1/2 are phosphorylated by the upstream kinase MEK on residues Thr202 and Tyr204 and in turn phosphorylate many other downstream molecules that are involved in a range of cellular processes such as cell proliferation, differentiation, motility and cell death.Product Details

- Host Species
- Partial human ERK1 recombinant protein (180-379 a.a.) expressed in E. coli.
- Phosphate-buffered solution, pH 7.2, containing 0.09% sodium azide.
- The antibody was purified by affinity chromatography.
- 0.5 mg/ml
- Storage & Handling
- The antibody solution should be stored undiluted between 2°C and 8°C.
WB - Quality tested
KO/KD-WB, ICC - Verified
- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by Western blotting. For Western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 0.5 – 2.0 µg/ml in human, mouse, and Drosophila. For immunocytochemistry, a concentration range of 1.0 - 5.0 μg/ml is recommended. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
Reactivity to Drosophila was only verified with the purified format.
The drosophila homolog of mammalian ERK1/2 is the 43 kD mitogen-activated protein kinase ERK-A.
AB_2861071 (BioLegend Cat. No. 686901)
AB_2629535 (BioLegend Cat. No. 686902)
- ERK1 and ERK2 encode 42 and 44 kD protein kinases and share 85% homology.
Nucleus and cytoplasm.
- ERK1/2 are broadly expressed protein kinases that are involved in proliferation, differentiation, motility, and cell death. In response to extracellular stimuli, ERK1/2 are phosphorylated at Thr202 and Tyr204 and in turn transduce signals to downstream substrates.
- Interacts with ADAM15, ARRB2, CANX, DAPK1, HSF4, IER3, MAP2K1/MEK1, MORG1, NISCH, SGK1, TPR, CDKN2AIP, PEA15, and MKNK2.
