|Description||MAP4K4: mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase kinase 4. The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the serine/threonine protein kinase family. This kinase has been shown to specifically activate MAPK8/JNK. The activation of MAPK8 by this kinase is found to be inhibited by the dominant-negative mutants of MAP3K7/TAK1, MAP2K4/MKK4, and MAP2K7/MKK7, which suggests that this kinase may function through the MAP3K7-MAP2K4-MAP2K7 kinase cascade, and mediate the TNF-alpha signaling pathway. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified.|
|Immunogen||Purified recombinant fragment of MAP4K4 (aa400-500) expressed in E. Coli.|
|Formulation||Ascitic fluid containing 0.03% sodium azide.|
|Other Names||Mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase kinase 4, 188.8.131.52, HPK/GCK-like kinase HGK, MAPK/ERK kinase kinase kinase 4, MEK kinase kinase 4, MEKKK 4, Nck-interacting kinase, MAP4K4, HGK, KIAA0687, NIK|
|Dilution||WB~~1/500 - 1/2000|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||MAP4K4 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||HGK, KIAA0687, NIK|
|Function||Serine/threonine kinase that may play a role in the response to environmental stress and cytokines such as TNF-alpha. Appears to act upstream of the JUN N-terminal pathway. Phosphorylates SMAD1 on Thr-322.|
|Tissue Location||Appears to be ubiquitous. Expressed in all tissue types examined. Isoform 5 appears to be more abundant in the brain. Isoform 4 is predominant in the liver, skeletal muscle and placenta.|
