Detection of Human/Mouse/Rat MEK2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of MCF-7 human breast cancer cell line, U937 human histiocytic lymphoma cell line, NIH-3T3 mouse embryonic fibroblast cell line, and NRK rat normal kidney cell. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.5 µg/mL Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat MEK2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2855) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). For additional reference, recombinant human MEK1 and Recombinant Human Active MEK2 (Catalog # 2855-KS) (5 ng/lane) were included. A specific band for MEK2 was detected at approximately ??? kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 3.

MEK1 and MEK2, also known as MAP2K1 and MAP2K2, are activated in response to mitogenic stimuli. Activation occurs through dual phosphorylation at S218/S222 of MEK1 and S222/S226 of MEK2 by several upstream MAP3Ks. Both MEK1 and MEK2 are dual-specificity protein kinases, phosphorylating and activating ERK1 and ERK2 at Thr and Tyr positions.
