MLK3 (Mixed lineage kinase 3) is a serine/threonine kinase that has an amino-terminal SH3 domain followed by the kinase domain and two leucine zippers, a cdc42/Rac1 binding (CRIB) domain and several other domains/motifs at the carboxy-terminal region. MLK3 functions as a MAPKKK of the SAPK/JNK stress pathway by directly phosphorylating SEK1/MKK4 and MKK7, althoμgh it is controversial whether MLK3 is involved in p38 stress pathway activation. MLK3 also functions as an IkB kinase and mediates the activation of the transcriptional factor NF-kB stimulated by CD3/CD28, sμggesting a role for MLK3 in immune and inflammatory responses.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat
Synthetic peptide mapping to the C-terminus of human MLK3.
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 50% glycerol, 1% BSA, and 0.02% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes 92 kDa MLK3 of human, mouse, and rat origins. It does not cross-react with MLK1, MLK2 and other mixed lineage kinases.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
