DUSP8 Antibody (C-term) Blocking Peptide

Synthetic peptide

Product Information
Primary Accession Q13202
Other Accession NP_004411
Peptide ID 15307
Additional Information
Gene ID 1850
Other Names Dual specificity protein phosphatase 8, Dual specificity protein phosphatase hVH-5, DUSP8, C11orf81, VH5
Target/Specificity The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8451b was selected from the C-term region of human DUSP8. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.

DUSP8 is a member of the dual specificity protein phosphatase subfamily. These phosphatases inactivate their target kinases by dephosphorylating both the phosphoserine/threonine and phosphotyrosine residues. They negatively regulate members of the mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase superfamily (MAPK/ERK, SAPK/JNK, p38), which is associated with cellular proliferation and differentiation. Different members of the family of dual specificity phosphatases show distinct substrate specificities for various MAP kinases, different tissue distribution and subcellular localization, and different modes of inducibility of their expression by extracellular stimuli. DUSP8 inactivates SAPK/JNK and p38, is expressed predominantly in the adult brain, heart, and skeletal muscle, is localized in the cytoplasm, and is induced by nerve growth factor and insulin.
