Rabbit anti MEK 1 (pThr291) antibody recognizes MAPK/ERK kinase 1 (MEK 1), also known as dual specificity mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase 1, MAP kinase kinase 1 (MAPKK 1) and ERK activator kinase 1, when phosphorylated at threonine 291.

MEK 1 is an integral component of the MAP kinase cascade that regulates cell growth and differentiation.

MEK1 is phosphorylated at threonine 291 by ERK1/2 as part of a negative feedback loop (Eblen et al. 2004, Zheng et al. 1994).
