Western blot analysis of human A431 epithelial cells untreated (lanes 1 & 4) or treated with 100 nM calyculin A for 30 min. (lanes 2 & 5) or 100 ng/ml EGF for 60 min. (lanes 3 & 6). The blots were probed with anti-ERK1 (C-terminal region) (lanes 1, 2, & 3) or anti-ERK1/2 (Thr-202/Tyr-204) (lanes 4, 5, & 6).

ERK1 (C-terminal region)
Mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) are a widely conserved family of serine/threonine protein kinases involved in many cellular programs such as cell proliferation, differentiation, motility, and death. The ERK1/2 (p44/42) signaling pathway can be activated in response to a diverse range of extracellular stimuli including mitogens, growth factors, and cytokines. Upon stimulation, a sequential three-part protein kinase cascade is initiated, consisting of a MAP kinase kinase kinase (MAPKKK), a MAP kinase kinase (MAPKK), and a MAP kinase (MAPK). Multiple ERK1/2 MAPKKKs have been identified, including members of the Raf family as well as Mos and Tpl2/Cot. MEK1 and MEK2 are the primary MAPKKs in this pathway. MEK1 and MEK2 activate ERK1 and ERK2 through phosphorylation of activation loop residues Thr-202/Tyr-204 and Thr-185/Tyr-187, respectively. ERK1/2 are negatively regulated by a family of dual-specificity (Thr/Tyr) MAPK phosphatases. Several downstream targets of ERK1/2 have been identified, including p90RSK and the transcription factor Elk-1.

Clone (M233) was generated from a recombinant human ERK1 protein that included amino acids residues in the C-terminal region. This sequence is conserved in rat and mouse ERK1, and has low homology to ERK2, as well as other ERK family members.

Storage at -20°C is recommended, as aliquots may be taken without freeze/thawing due to presence of 50% glycerol. Stable for at least 1 year at -20°C.
PBS + 1 mg/ml BSA, 0.05% NaN3 and 50% glycerol
The antibody detects a 44 kDa* protein corresponding to ERK1 on SDS-PAGE immunoblots of human A431 epithelial cells. It does not detect ERK2.
