Mitogen-activated protein kinase 8
Short name= MAP kinase 8
Short name= MAPK 8
Stress-activated protein kinase JNK1
The shelf life is related to many factors, storage state, buffer ingredients, storage temperature and the stability of the protein itself. Generally, the shelf life of liquid form is 6 months at -20°C/-80°C. The shelf life of lyophilized form is 12 months at -20°C/-80°C.
Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.
Responds to activation by environmental stress and pro-inflammatory cytokines by phosphorylating a number of transcription factors, and thus regulating transcriptional activity (By similarity). Regulates morphogenic cell movements, controlling convergent extension during gastrulation. May play a role in the regulation of the circadian clock (By similarity).
Protein kinase superfamily, CMGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family, MAP kinase subfamily
Strongly expressed in presumptive ectoderm and mesoderm regions and weakly expressed in endoderm regions during early stages of embryo development. Expressed in the head and dorsal regions during neurula and tailbud stages.
