Rabbit anti Human MEK 2 antibody recognizes MEK 2 also known as dual specificity mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase 2, also known as ERK activator kinase 2, MAP kinase kinase 2, MAPK/ERK kinase 2, MAPKK2 or p45.

The protein encoded by MAP2K2 gene is a dual specificity protein kinase that belongs to the MAP kinase kinase family. This kinase is known to play a critical role in mitogen growth factor signal transduction. It phosphorylates and thus activates MAPK1/ERK2 and MAPK2/ERK3. The activation of this kinase itself is dependent on the Ser/Thr phosphorylation by MAP kinase kinase kinases. Mutations in MAP2K2 gene cause Cardiofaciocutaneous syndrome 4 (CFC4), a disease characterized by heart defects, mental retardation, and distinctive facial features similar to those found in Noonan syndrome (Schulz et al. 2008). The inhibition or degradation of this kinase is also found to be involved in the pathogenesis of Yersinia and anthrax. A pseudogene, which is located on chromosome 7, has been identified for MAP2K2 (provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008).

Rabbit anti Human MEK 2 antibody detects a band of 49 kDa. The antibody has been extensively validated for western blotting using whole cell lysates.
