Detection of Human/Mouse/Rat MST2/STK3 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line, MCF‑7 human breast cancer cell line, NIH‑3T3 mouse embryonic fibroblast cell line, and L6 rat myoblast cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Human/Mouse/Rat MST2/STK3 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF4549) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF017). A specific band was detected for MST2/STK3 at approximately 65 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 2.

MST2 (mammalian sterile twenty-like 2; also known as STK3 and Krs-1) is a 58 kDa member of the GCKII group of the STE20 subfamily of the STE Ser/Thr kinase protein family. In human, MST2 is 491 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains one kinase domain (aa 27‑278), two NESs (aa 361‑371 and 438‑447) and coiled-coil domains (aa 287‑328 and 442‑475), and one NLS (aa 473‑487). A caspase-cleavage site exists between Asp322‑Ser323. MST2 is normally inactive in the cytoplasm bound to Raf-1. Cell activation induces Raf-1:MST2 dissociation, MST2 cleavage, and N-terminal translocation to the nucleus. Human MST2 is 99% and 96% aa identical to canine and mouse MST2, respectively.
