Human JNK1 Baculovirus-Insect Overexpression Lysate: Product Information

Product Description
This Human JNK1 overexpression lysate was created in Baculovirus-Insect Cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of JNK1 protein (Cat: 10795-H09B) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
Expression Host
Baculovirus-Insect Cells
Species
Human
Sequence Information
A DNA sequence encoding the full length of human MAPK8 isoform JNK1 alpha 2 (NP_620637.1) (Met 1-Arg 427) was expressed with the GST tag at the N-terminus.
Molecule Mass
The recombinant human MAPK8/GST chimera consists of 652 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 75 kDa. It migrates as an approximately 65 kDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.

Human JNK1 Baculovirus-Insect Overexpression Lysate: Usage Guide

Preparation Method
Cell lysate was prepared by homogenization of the over-expressed cells in ice-cold modified RIPA Lysis Buffer with cocktail of protease inhibitors (Sigma). Cell debris was removed by centrifugation. Protein concentration was determined by Bradford assay (Bio-Rad protein assay, Microplate Standard assay). The cell lysate was boiled for 5 min in 1 x SDS loading buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl pH 6.8, 12.5% glycerol, 1% sodium dodecylsulfate, 0.01% bromophenol blue) containing 5% b-mercaptoethanol, and lyophilized.
Lysis Buffer
Modified RIPA Lysis Buffer: 50 mM Tris-HCl pH 7.4, 150 mM NaCl, 1mM EDTA, 1% Triton X-100, 0.1% SDS, 1% Sodium deoxycholate, 1mM PMSF.
Recommend Usage
1.  Centrifuge the tube for a few seconds and ensure the pellet at the bottom of the tube. 2.  Re-dissolve the pellet using 200μL pure water and boil for 2-5 min.
Sample Buffer
1 X Sample Buffer (1 X modified RIPA buffer+1 X SDS loading buffer).
Stability & Storage
Store at 4℃ for up to twelve months from date of receipt. After re-dissolution, aliquot and store at -80℃ for up to twelve months. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Application
Western Blot (WB)
Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

JNK1 Background Information

Mitogen-activated protein kinase 8 (MAPK8), also known as JNK1, 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. The protein kinases JNK1 has been found to serve as critical molecular links between obesity, metabolic inflammation, and disorders of glucose homeostasis. It is critically involved in the promotion of diet-induced obesity, metabolic inflammation and beta-cell dysfunction. The selective deficiency of JNK1 in the murine nervous system is sufficient to suppress diet-induced obesity. Genetic analysis indicates that the effects of JNK1 can be separated from effects of JNK1 on obesity. JNK1 is a potential pharmacological target for the development of drugs that might be useful for the treatment of metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes. Furthermore, JNK1 plays a major role in the hypoxic cellular damage. JNK1 protein might be an attractive target for antihypoxic therapy in increasing resistance to many pathological conditions and diseases, leading to the oxygen deficit.
