Detects human and mouse MafK in Western blots. In Western blots, no cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) MafB or rhMafF is observed. In Western blots, prolonged film exposures may slightly detect rhMafG.
Monoclonal Mouse IgG2B Clone # 381923
Protein A or G purified from hybridoma culture supernatant
E. coli-derived recombinant human MafK Thr2-Ser156 Accession # O60675
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.
Detection of Human/Mouse MafK by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of A549 human lung carcinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse MafK Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB3809) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). For additional reference, recombinant human MafB, MafF, MafG, and MafK (0.5 ng/lane) were included. A specific band for MafK was detected at approximately 18 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 3.

Maf family members form a unique subclass of basic-leucine zipper (bZIP) transcription factors. Maf proteins are subdivided into two groupings: large, including c‑Maf, Nrl, MafA, and MafB; and small, including MafF, MafG, and MafK, also known as p18. Large Mafs contain an N-terminal acidic domain important for transcriptional activation that is lacking in small Maf family members. Heterodimers of MafK and p45 NF-E2, another bZIP factor, promote globin gene expression and erythroid differentiation in erythroleukemia cells.
