Immunofluorescent analysis of ERK3 (green) showing positive staining in the cytoplasm and nucleus of NIH-3T3 cells (right) compared with a negative control in the absence of primary antibody (left). Formalin-fixed cells were permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in TBS for 5-10 minutes, blocked with 3% BSA-PBS for 30 minutes at room temperature and probed with an ERK3 monoclonal antibody (Product # MA1-101) in 3% BSA-PBS at a dilution of 1:200 and incubated overnight at 4 °C in a humidified chamber. Cells were washed with PBST and incubated with a DyLight 488-conjugated goat-anti-mouse IgG (H+L) secondary antibody in PBS at room temperature in the dark. F-actin (red) was stained with a flourescent red phalloidin and nuclei (blue) were stained with DAPI for 5-10 minutes in the dark. Images were taken at a magnification of 60x.

MA1-101 has been successfully used in Western blot, immunohistochemistry and immunfluorescence applications on human and mouse samples.
ERK3 is a member of the Ser/Thr protein kinase family, and is most closely related to mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAP kinases). MAP kinases also known as extracellular signal-regulated kinases (ERKs), are activated through protein phosphorylation cascades and act as integration points for multiple biochemical signals. This kinase is localized in the nucleus, and has been reported to be activated in fibroblasts upon treatment with serum or phorbol esters
