Western blot analysis was performed on whole cell extracts (20 ug lysate) of NIH/3T3 (Lane 1), PC-12 (Lane 2), HeLa (lane 3), HUVEC (lane 4), A549 (lane 5), Serum Starved A549 (lane 6) and A549 serum starved overnight followed by treatment for 10 minutes with 50 ng/ml of PDGF (lane 7). The blots were probed with Anti-MAPK7 Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (Product# 44688G, 1:500-1:2000 dilution) and detected by chemiluminescence using Goat anti-Rabbit IgG (H+L) Superclonal™ Secondary Antibody, HRP conjugate (Product # A27036, 0.4 ug/ml, 1:2500 dilution). Three bands ~ 73, 35 and 30 kDa corresponding to MAPK7 was observed across the cell lines tested. Known quantity of protein samples were electrophoresed using Novex® NuPAGE® 12 % Bis-Tris gel (Product # NP0342BOX), XCell SureLock™ Electrophoresis System (Product # EI0002) and Novex® Sharp Pre-Stained Protein Standard (Product # LC5800). Resolved proteins were then transferred onto a nitrocellulose membrane with iBlot® 2 Dry Blotting System (Product # IB21001). The membrane was probed with the relevant primary and secondary Antibody following blocking with 5 % skimmed milk. Chemiluminescent detection was performed using Novex® ECL Chemiluminescent Substrate Reagent Kit (Product # WP20005).

The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the MAP kinase family. MAP kinases act as an integration point for multiple biochemical signals, and are involved in a wide variety of cellular processes such as proliferation, differentiation, transcription regulation and development. This kinase is specifically activated by mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase 5. It is involved in the downstream signaling processes of various receptor molecules including receptor type kinases, and G protein-coupled receptors. In response to extracelluar signals, this kinase translocates to cell nucleus, where it regulates gene expression by phosphorylating, and activating different transcription factors. Four alternatively spliced transcript variants of this gene encoding two distinct isoforms have been reported.
