Total p38 alpha DuoSet IC ELISA Summary

Assay Type
Solid Phase Sandwich ELISA
Format
96-well strip plate
Sample Volume Required
Cell lysates (100 µL)
Sufficient Materials
Kits available for two, five, or fifteen 96-well plates*
Specificity

* Provided that the recommended microplates, buffers, diluents, substrates and solutions are used, and the assay is run as summarized in the Assay Procedure provided.

This DuoSet IC ELISA contains the basic components required for the development of sandwich ELISAs to measure total p38 alpha in cell lysates. An immobilized capture antibody specific for p38 alpha binds both phosphorylated and unphosphorylated p38 alpha. After washing away unbound material, a biotinylated detection antibody is used to detect both phosphorylated and unphosphorylated protein, utilizing a standard Streptavidin-HRP format.

Background: p38 alpha

The p38 Mitogen-activated Protein Kinases (MAPKs) are a family of four related Ser/Thr kinases activated by proinflammatory cytokines and environmental stresses. All four p38 family members, alpha, beta, gamma, and delta, are phosphorylated by MKK3 and/or MKK6 at dual Thr and Tyr positions within the phosphoacceptor sequence Thr-Gly-Tyr. Once activated, p38 phosphorylates a number of targets, including the nuclear transcription factors ATF2 and Max.

The most frequently analyzed family member, p38 alpha, also known as SAPK2a and MAPK14, was initially purified as a kinase critical to the signaling cascade linking IL-1 to MAPKAPK-2 and the small heat shock protein HSP27. Ubiquitously expressed, p38 alpha is dually phosphorylated by MKK3 and MKK6 at Thr180 and Tyr182. Once activated, p38 alpha phosphorylates a number of targets, including the cytoplasmic kinases MNK 4 and PRAK5 and the nuclear transcription factors ATF2 1 and STAT1. Several promising compounds that inhibit p38 alpha are being investigated as potential therapies for arthritic and inflammatory diseases.
