An, H., Xu, H., Zhang, M., Zhou, J., Feng, T., Qian, C., Qi, R. and Cao, X.

Notes: The authors of this study investigated the role of Src homology 2 (SH2) domain-containing inositol-5-phosphatase 1 (SHIP1) in Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4)-mediated lipopolysaccharide (LPS) response. RAW264.7 macrophages were transfected with wildtype or mutant SHIP1 or control plasmid. Anti-ACTIVE® JNK and p38 antibodies were used in Western analyses to determine phosphorylation of these kinases in response to overexpression of SHIP1 or mutant SHIP1. To investigate any effects on IκB-alpha and NF-κB expression, RAW264.7 macrophages were cotransfected with pGL3-XκB-luciferase reporter plasmid and pRL-TK Renilla luciferase control plasmid. Transfected cells were treated with LPS for 6 hours or left untreated (control). The Dual-Luciferase® Reporter Assay System was used to monitor reporter gene expression. (3524)

J. Biol. Chem. 278, 3860-3867. Enhanced activation of mitogen-activated protein kinase and myosin light chain kinase by the Pro33 polymorphism of integrin beta 3. 2003

Vijayan K.V., Liu Y., Dong J.F. and Bray P.F.

Notes: The role of integrin alpha(IIb)beta(3) in focal adhesion kinase activation and MAPK signaling was studied using Chinese hamster ovary and human kidney 293 cell lines expressing either the Leu(33) or Pro(33) isoform of beta(3). Compared with Leu(33) cells, Pro(33) cells demonstrated substantially greater activation of ERK2 (but not MAPK family members JNK and p38) upon adhesion to immobilized fibrinogen (but not fibronectin), and upon integrin cross-linking. ERK2 activation was mediated through MAPK kinase and required phosphoinositide 3-kinase signaling and an intact actin cytoskeleton.  Levels of activated MAPK family members ERK1 and 2, JNK, and p38 were assessed by western blotting using Anti-ACTIVE® MAPK (1:5000 dilution), Anti-ACTIVE® JNK (1:5000 dilution), and Anti-ACTIVE® p38 (1:1000 dilution) pAbs.  Anti-ERK 1/2 pAb was used at a 1:5000 dilution as a control for total protein amounts loaded on the blots.  (2789)

Notes: The neurotoxic effects of chromogranin A activated microglia in neurodegenerative diseases was examined. Rat neurons were grown in the presence or absence of conditioned media from chromogranin A treated or untreated microglia. DNA fragmentation in apoptotic neurons was detected using the DeadEnd™ Fluorometric TUNEL System. The levels of dually phosphorylated, active JNK in these cells was determined by Western blot analysis using the Anti-ACTIVE® JNK pAb.

Sugino, T., Nozaki. K., Takagi, Y., Hattori, I., Hashimoto, N., Moriguchi, T., and Nishida, E.

Notes: The role of JNK, p38 and MAPK signaling pathways in delayed neuronal death after transient forebrain ischemia was examined using Western blotting and immunohistochemistry. Gerbil hippocampi were homogenized, subjected to SDS-PAGE, blotted to PVDF membranes and incubated with one of the following primary antibodies: Anti-ACTIVE® JNK pAb (1:2000 dilution), Anti-ACTIVE® p38 pAb (1:1000 dilution), and the Anti-ACTIVE® MAPK pAb (1:2000 dilution).The secondary antibody was the Donkey Anti-Rabbit IgG (H+L), AP, diluted 1:10,000 for JNK and p38 and 1:5000 for ERK. For immunohistochemistry, gerbils were perfused with 4% paraformaldehyde. Frozen 40µm sections were stained with either the Anti-ACTIVE® JNK pAb and the Anti-ACTIVE® p38 pAb. (2402)

J. Cell Biol. 150, 165-175. Glutamate slows axonal transport of neurofilaments in transfected neurons. 2000

Ackerley, S., Grierson, A.J., Brownlees, J., Thornhill, P., Anderton, B.H., Leigh, P.N., Shaw, C.E., and Miller C.C.

Notes: The authors seek to determine the role of glutamate in excitotoxicity and neurofilament accumulation seen in some neurodegenerative diseases. Neurofilament light, middle, and heavy chains were expressed from rat cDNAs cloned into the pCI-neo Mammalian Expression vector in SW-13 cells. Primary rat cortical neurons were transfected with a neurofilament middle chain and green fluorescent fusion protein. SW13 cells and primary rat cortical neurons were transfected with the ProFection® Mammalian Transfection System–Calcium Phosphate. The CytoTox 96® Non-Radioactive Cytotoxicity Assay was used to monitor glutamate toxicity in these cell. To determine the role of the MAPK and JNK signaling pathways,  SW13- cells and primary neuronal cells were immunostained for dually phosphorylated MAPK and JNK using Promega's Anti-ACTIVE® MAPK pAb and Anti-ACTIVE® JNK pAb, respectively. Cells were fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde, permeabilized in 0.1% Triton® X-100 in PBS, blocked with  0.2% Tween® 20 in TBS, and incubated with primary antibodies diluted in blocking solution. Western blot analyses were performed on the primary cortical neurons to quantitate the level of dually phosphorylated MAPK protein  The blots were also probed with a pan MAPK antibody that detects total (active and inactive) MAPK.

Mol. Cell. Biol. 20, 6826-6836. Hsp72-mediated suppression of c-Jun N-terminal kinase is implicated in development of tolerance to caspase-independent cell death. 2000

Gabai, V.L., Yaglom, J.A., Volloch, V., Meriin, A.B., Force, T., Koutroumanis, M., Massie, B., Mosser, D.D. and Sherman, M.Y.

Notes: Levels of active (phophorylated) JNK were tested by western blotting of extracts from heat shocked fibroblasts using the Anti-ACTIVE® JNK pAb. Severe heat shock strongly activates JNK, but this activation is suppressed when cells are first exposed to a mild heat shock. It was shown that when accumulation of Hsp72 protein after mild heat stress was blocked by expression of antisense RNA, JNK suppression was relieved. The fibroblasts used were IMR90 human lung fibroblasts. (2131)

Fukuyama, K. , Yoshida, M. , Yamashita, A. , Deyama, T. , Baba, M. , Suzuki, A. , Mohri, H. , Ikezawa, Z. , Nakajima, H. , Hirai, S. , and Ohno, S.

Notes: The 293T cell line was transfected with constructs expressing MAPK Upstream Kinase (MUK) or another JNK activating Kinase called COT. Together with the MUK or COT, cells were transfected with JNK constructs and MUK Inhibitory Binding Protein. The coexpression of MUK or COT with JNK caused activation of JNK to its dually phosphorylated form. Inclusion of MIBP with MUK decreased the activation of JNK to near basal levels. MIBP had no effect on COT-dependent JNK activation. Activation of JNK was determined with the Anti-ACTIVE® JNK pAb via Western blotting. (0072)

Takagi, Y., Nozaki, K., Sugino, T., Hattori, I., and Hashimoto, N.

Notes: The role of JNK and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase during transient brain ischemia was examined by immunohistochemistry and Western blot analysis. The authors findings indicate that JNK and p38 MAPK pathways may play important roles in neuronal death during brain ischemia. Levels of active JNK and p38 in mouse brain were determined by Western blot analysis and immunohistochemistry using the Anti-ACTIVE® JNK pAb and the Anti-ACTIVE® p38 pAb. For Western blot analysis the antibodies were diluted 1:5000 while immunohistochemical studies were done with dilutions of 1:1000 and 1:400, respectively. Both JNK and p38 were activated following reperfusion of the ischemic tissue. (2409)

Notes: The signaling mechanism of Bcl10, an apoptosis-associated gene mutated in mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphomas, was examined. Activation of the JNK signaling pathway in response to overexpression of Bcl10 in 293 cells was monitored by immunoprecipitation with an anti-JNK1 antibody followed by Western blotting with the Anti-ACTIVE® JNKpAb. Immunohistochemical staining of transgenic mice expressing Bcl10 was also performed with the Anti-ACTIVE® JNK pAb. Mouse thymus was fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde, dehydrated, embedded in paraffin, and sectioned (5 µm thick) prior to immunostaining. (2384)

Notes: The Anti-ACTIVE® JNK pAb was used to detect JNK in lysates of agonist- and inhibitor-treated PC12 cells. The antibody was used at a 1:5000 dilution, and the secondary antibodies used were either HRP- or AP-conjugated. The authors were studying the PI3K pathway, and used various inhibitors to differentiate the regulatory pathway controlled by PI3K from other kinase pathways. The cells were treated with NGF to stimulate kinase activity, and treated with kinase inhibitors to determine which inhibitors were selectively inhibited PI3K signaling. (2135)
