Detection of Human ERK1 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line, Jurkat human acute T cell leukemia cell line, and MCF-7 human breast cancer cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.2 µg/mL Mouse Anti-Human ERK1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1940) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). For additional reference, Recombinant Human Active ERK1 (Catalog # 1879-KS) and Recombinant Human Active ERK2 (Catalog # 1230-KS) (2 ng/lane) were included. A specific band for ERK1 was detected at approximately 44 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 3.
ERK1 in Human Liver. ERK1 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human liver using Mouse Anti-Human ERK1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1940) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm in hepatocytes. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

ERK1 is a protein Serine/Threonine kinase that is a member of the extracellular signal-regulated kinases (ERKs) which are activated in response to numerous growth factors and cytokines (1). Activation of ERK1 requires both tyrosine and threonine phosphorylation that is mediated by MEK. ERK1 is ubiquitously distributed in tissues with the highest expression in heart, brain, and spinal cord. Activated ERK1 translocates into the nucleus where it phosphorylates various transcription factors.
