|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||51875 Da|
|Antigen Region||402-432 aa|
|Other Names||MAP kinase-interacting serine/threonine-protein kinase 2, MAP kinase signal-integrating kinase 2, MAPK signal-integrating kinase 2, Mnk2, MKNK2, GPRK7, MNK2|
|Target/Specificity||This MNK2 (MKNK2) antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 402-432 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human MNK2 (MKNK2).|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||MNK2 (MKNK2) Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Serine/threonine-protein kinase that phosphorylates SFPQ/PSF, HNRNPA1 and EIF4E. May play a role in the response to environmental stress and cytokines. Appears to regulate translation by phosphorylating EIF4E, thus increasing the affinity of this protein for the 7-methylguanosine-containing mRNA cap. Required for mediating PP2A-inhibition-induced EIF4E phosphorylation. Triggers EIF4E shuttling from cytoplasm to nucleus. Isoform 1 displays a high basal kinase activity, but isoform 2 exhibits a very low kinase activity. Acts as a mediator of the suppressive effects of IFNgamma on hematopoiesis. Negative regulator for signals that control generation of arsenic trioxide As(2)O(3)-dependent apoptosis and anti-leukemic responses. Involved in anti-apoptotic signaling in response to serum withdrawal.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 2: Nucleus, PML body.|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitously expressed in all tissues examined. Isoform 2 is expressed at higher levels in the ovary than is isoform 1.|
