|Other Names||Mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase 1, MAPK/ERK kinase kinase 1, MEK kinase 1, MEKK 1, MAP3K1, MAPKKK1, MEKK, MEKK1|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7907a was selected from the C-term region of human MEKK1 . A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||MAPKKK1, MEKK, MEKK1|
|Function||Component of a protein kinase signal transduction cascade. Activates the ERK and JNK kinase pathways by phosphorylation of MAP2K1 and MAP2K4. Activates CHUK and IKBKB, the central protein kinases of the NF-kappa-B pathway.|

Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling cascades include MAPK or extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK), MAPK kinase (MKK or MEK), and MAPK kinase kinase (MAPKKK or MEKK). MAPKK kinase/MEKK phosphorylates and activates its downstream protein kinase, MAPK kinase/MEK, which in turn activates MAPK. The kinases of these signaling cascades are highly conserved, and homologs exist in yeast, Drosophila, and mammalian cells. MEKK1 can phosphorylate and activate MAPKK 1 and MAPKK 2 (MEK1/MEK2) which leads to phosphorylation of MAP kinases. It is also a highly efficient activator of the JNK cascade. The protein contains a putative 1 RING-type zinc finger and 1 SWIM-type zinc finger.
