The MAPK (mitogen activated protein kinase) comprises a family of ubiquitous praline-directed, proteinserine/ threonine kinases which signal transduction pathways that control intracellular events including acute responses to hormones and major developmental changes in organisms (1). This super family consists of stress activated protein kinases (SAPKs); extracellular signal-regulated kinases (ERKs); and p38 kinases, each of which forms a separate pathway (2). The kinase members that populate each pathway are sequentially activated by phosphorylation. Upon activation, p38 MAPK/SAPK2α translocates into the nucleus where it phosphorylates one or more nuclear substrates, effecting transcriptional changes and other cellular processes involved in cell growth, division, differentiation, inflammation, and death (3). Specifically p38 always acts as a pro-apoptotic factor with its activation leading to the release of cytochrome c from mitochondria and cleavage of caspase 3 and its downstream effector, PARP (4). p38 MAPK is activated by a variety of chemical stress inducers including hydrogen peroxide, heavy metals, anisomycin, sodium salicylate, LPS, and biological stress signals such as tumor necrosis factor, interleukin-1, ionizing and UV irradiation, hyperosmotic stress and chemotherapeutic drugs (5). As a result, p38 alpha has been widely validated as a target for inflammatory disease including rheumatoid arthritis, COPD and psoriasis (6) and has also been implicated in cancer, CNS and diabetes (7).

The Mouse Anti- p38 alpha (MAP Kinase) Monoclonal IgG1, Clone 9F12 is a α- or alpha protein sometimes glycoprotein present in blood.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.
StressMark antibodies supplies antibodies that are for research of human proteins.Mouse or mice from the Mus musculus species are used for production of mouse monoclonal antibodies or mabs and as research model for humans in your lab. Mouse are mature after 40 days for females and 55 days for males. The female mice are pregnant only 20 days and can give birth to 10 litters of 6-8 mice a year. Transgenic, knock-out, congenic and inbread strains are known for C57BL/6, A/J, BALB/c, SCID while the CD-1 is outbred as strain.
Human proteins, cDNA and human recombinants are used in human reactive ELISA kits and to produce anti-human mono and polyclonal antibodies. Modern humans (Homo sapiens, primarily ssp. Homo sapiens sapiens). Depending on the epitopes used human ELISA kits can be cross reactive to many other species. Mainly analyzed are human serum, plasma, urine, saliva, human cell culture supernatants and biological samples.
Monoclonals of this antigen are available in different clones. Each murine monoclonal anibody has his own affinity specific for the clone. Mouse monoclonal antibodies are purified protein A or G and can be conjugated to FITC for flow cytometry or FACS and can be of different isotypes.
