|Target/Specificity||Synthetic phospho-peptide corresponding to amino acid residues surrounding Thr180/Tyr182 conjugated to KLH.|
|Dilution||WB~~ 1:1000 |
|Format||Prepared from rabbit serum by affinity purification via sequential chromatography on phospho- and dephosphopeptide affinity columns.|
|Antibody Specificity||Specific for the ~39k p38 MAPK protein phosphorylated at Thr180/Tyr182. Immunolabeling is blocked by preadsorption of the antibody with the phosphopeptide used as antigen but not by the corresponding dephosphopeptide.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Phospho-Thr180/Tyr182 p38 MAPK Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|

The three Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinases (MAPKs) are evolutionarily conserved protein kinases that control a vast array of cellular processes. p38 MAPK is one of these kinases and it is activated by both inflammatory cytokines and by stress (Johnson and Lapadat, 2002; Shi and Gaestel, 2002). The p38 MAPK is thought to be particularly important in diseases like asthma and autoimmunity but it also plays important roles in the stress response of the nervous system (Philip and Armstead, 2003; Ying et al., 2002). Like the other MAPKs, p38 is activated by a dual specificity kinase that phosphorylates Thr180 and Tyr182 (Lin et al., 1995).
