|Baculovirus-Insect Cell lysate that Human MAP4K2 / GCK transfected / overexpressed for Western blot (WB) positive control. The whole cell lysate is provided in 1X Sample Buffer (1X modified RIPA buffer+1X SDS loading buffer).|
|A DNA sequence encoding the human MAP4K2 (AAH47865.1) (Met 1-Tyr 812) was fused with the N-terminal polyhistidine-tagged GST tag at the N-terminus.|
|The recombinant human MAP4K2/GST chimera consists of 1049 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 119 kDa. It migrates as an approximately 116 kDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.|
|Cell lysate was prepared by homogenization in ice-cold modified RIPA Lysis Buffer with cocktail of protease inhibitors (Sigma). Cell debris was removed by centrifugation. Protein concentration was determined by Bradford assay (Bio-Rad protein assay, Microplate Standard assay). The cell lysate was boiled for 5 min in 1 x SDS loading buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl pH 6.8, 12.5% glycerol, 1% sodium dodecylsulfate, 0.01% bromophenol blue) containing 5% b-mercaptoethanol, and lyophilized.|
|Modified RIPA Lysis Buffer: 50 mM Tris-HCl pH 7.4, 150 mM NaCl, 1mM EDTA, 1% Triton X-100, 0.1% SDS, 1% Sodium deoxycholate, 1mM PMSF.|
|12.5% SDS-PAGE Stained with Coomassie Blue after protein purification.|
|Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt.|
|1. Centrifuge the tube for a few seconds and ensure the pellet at the bottom of the tube. 2. Re-dissolve the pellet using 200μL pure water and boil for 2-5 min. 3. Store the lyophilized cell lysate at 4℃. After re-dissolution, recommend to aliquot it into smaller quantities and store at -80℃.|
|1 X Sample Buffer (1 X modified RIPA buffer+1 X SDS loading buffer).|
|Store at 4℃. After re-dissolution, aliquot and store at -80℃.|
|Western blot (WB): Use at an assay dependent dilution.|
Other Applications: Not tested.
Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase kinase 2, also known as B lymphocyte serine/threonine-protein kinase, Germinal center kinase, MAPK/ERK kinase kinase kinase 2, MEK kinase kinase 2, Rab8-interacting protein and MAP4K2, is a cytoplasm and peripheral membrane protein which belongs to the protein kinase superfamily, STE Ser/Thr protein kinase family and STE20 subfamily. MAP4K2 contains one CNH domain and one protein kinase domain. Although this kinase is found in many tissues, its expression in lymphoid follicles is restricted to the cells of germinal centre, where it may participate in B-cell differentiation. MAP4K2 can be activated by TNF-alpha, and has been shown to specifically activate MAP kinases. It is also found to interact with TNF receptor-associated factor 2 (TRAF2), which is involved in the activation of MAP3K1 / MEKK1. MAP4K2 enhances MAP3K1 oligomerization, which may relieve amino-terminal mediated MAP3K1 autoinhibition and lead to activation following autophosphorylation. It may also play a role in the regulation of vesicle targeting or fusion.
