In order to elicit an immune response, CUSABIO immunized an animal with a human MAP2K1-derived peptide. B cells were isolated from the immunized animal and fused with myeloma cells, resulting in the formation of hybridoma cells. Through careful screening, a specific hybridoma cell clone that produces MAP2K1-specific antibodies was selected. RNA was extracted from the chosen hybridoma cells, and the genes that encode the MAP2K1 antibody's heavy and light chains were amplified using reverse transcription PCR. These amplified genes were then cloned into an expression vector and transfected into a host system to enable antibody expression. The MAP2K1 recombinant monoclonal antibodies were purified from the cell culture supernatant using affinity chromatography. Rigorous validation using ELISA, WB, IHC, and IP assays confirmed the binding specificity and affinity of the recombinant monoclonal MAP2K1 antibody with both human and rat MAP2K1 protein.

Target Background

Dual specificity protein kinase which acts as an essential component of the MAP kinase signal transduction pathway. Binding of extracellular ligands such as growth factors, cytokines and hormones to their cell-surface receptors activates RAS and this initiates RAF1 activation. RAF1 then further activates the dual-specificity protein kinases MAP2K1/MEK1 and MAP2K2/MEK2. Both MAP2K1/MEK1 and MAP2K2/MEK2 function specifically in the MAPK/ERK cascade, and catalyze the concomitant phosphorylation of a threonine and a tyrosine residue in a Thr-Glu-Tyr sequence located in the extracellular signal-regulated kinases MAPK3/ERK1 and MAPK1/ERK2, leading to their activation and further transduction of the signal within the MAPK/ERK cascade. Activates BRAF in a KSR1 or KSR2-dependent manner; by binding to KSR1 or KSR2 releases the inhibitory intramolecular interaction between KSR1 or KSR2 protein kinase and N-terminal domains which promotes KSR1 or KSR2-BRAF dimerization and BRAF activation. Depending on the cellular context, this pathway mediates diverse biological functions such as cell growth, adhesion, survival and differentiation, predominantly through the regulation of transcription, metabolism and cytoskeletal rearrangements. One target of the MAPK/ERK cascade is peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARG), a nuclear receptor that promotes differentiation and apoptosis. MAP2K1/MEK1 has been shown to export PPARG from the nucleus. The MAPK/ERK cascade is also involved in the regulation of endosomal dynamics, including lysosome processing and endosome cycling through the perinuclear recycling compartment (PNRC), as well as in the fragmentation of the Golgi apparatus during mitosis.

  19. MEK1 is constitutively and mainly phosphorylated at the Thr-292, Ser-298, Thr-386, and Thr-388 residues in vivo, and combinations of phosphorylations at these four residues produce at least six phosphorylated variants of MEK1.
