|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Other Accession||P0C865, Q9WVS8, A5PKJ4|
|Predicted||Bovine, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||88386 Da|
|Antigen Region||776-805 aa|
|Other Names||Mitogen-activated protein kinase 7, MAP kinase 7, MAPK 7, Big MAP kinase 1, BMK-1, Extracellular signal-regulated kinase 5, ERK-5, MAPK7, BMK1, ERK5, PRKM7|
|Target/Specificity||This MAPK7 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 776-805 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human MAPK7.|
|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||MAPK7 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||BMK1, ERK5, PRKM7|
|Function||Plays a role in various cellular processes such as proliferation, differentiation and cell survival. The upstream activator of MAPK7 is the MAPK kinase MAP2K5. Upon activation, it translocates to the nucleus and phosphorylates various downstream targets including MEF2C. EGF activates MAPK7 through a Ras- independent and MAP2K5-dependent pathway. May have a role in muscle cell differentiation. May be important for endothelial function and maintenance of blood vessel integrity. MAP2K5 and MAPK7 interact specifically with one another and not with MEK1/ERK1 or MEK2/ERK2 pathways. Phosphorylates SGK1 at Ser-78 and this is required for growth factor-induced cell cycle progression. Involved in the regulation of p53/TP53 by disrupting the PML-MDM2 interaction.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Nucleus, PML body. Note=Translocates to the nucleus upon activation|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in many adult tissues. Abundant in heart, placenta, lung, kidney and skeletal muscle. Not detectable in liver.|

MEK5 and ERK5, a member of the MAP kinase subfamily of the Ser/Thr protein kinases, interact specifically with one another and not with MEK1/ERK1 or MEK2/ERK2 pathways. ERK5 is activated by tyrosine and threonine phosphorylation It is expressed in many adult tissues, abundantly in heart, placenta, lung, kidney and skeletal muscle, but is not detectable in liver. The second proline-rich region may interact with actin targeting the kinase to a specific location in the cell. ERK5 is autophosphorylated on threonine and tyrosine residues when the C-terminal part of the kinase, which could have a regulatory role, is absent.
