Detection of Human Phospho-MSK1/MSK2 (MSK1 S376, MSK2 S360) by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HEK293 human embryonic kidney cell line untreated (-) or treated (+) with 200 ng/mL Recombinant Human EGF (Catalog # 236-EG) in the presence or absence of pathway inhibitors SB203580 and PD98059 for 20 minutes. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.2 µg/mL of Rabbit Anti-Human Phospho-MSK1/MSK2 (MSK1 S376, MSK2 S360) Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody, followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rabbit IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF008). A specific band was detected for Phospho-MSK1/MSK2 (MSK1 S376, MSK2 S360) at approximately 90 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Mitogen- and stress-activated protein kinase 1 (MSK1), also known as ribosomal protein S6 kinase 5 (RPS6KA5), belongs to the AGC family of kinases. Both MSK1 and the related MSK2, also known as RSKB and RPS6KA4, have two kinase domains connected by a regulatory linker region, and are activated by the mitogen-activated protein kinases ERK1, ERK2, and p38. Nuclear MSK phosphorylates and activates a number of transcription factors, including ATF1 and CREB.
