||Recombinant full-length human MNK2 was expressed by baculovirus inSf9insect cells using a N-terminal GST tag. MW = 74 kDa.
||MNK2 (MAP kinase-interacting kinase 2) contains a conserved C-terminal ERK-interacting domain, a catalytic domain with homology to the calcium/calmodulin-dependent family of kinases, and putative MAP kinase phosphorylation sites located within the T loop of the kinase domain. MNK2 binds tightly to the growth factor-regulated MAP kinases, ERK1 and ERK2. ERK and p38 phosphorylate MNK2, which stimulates its in vitro kinase activity toward a substrate, eukaryotic initiation factor-4E (eIF-4E). A yeast two-hybrid screen showed the Mnk2 protein interacted with the ligand-binding domain of estrogen receptor beta (ERbeta).

|Storage And Stability:
||Store product at -70℃. For optimal storage, aliquot target into smaller quantities after centrifugation and store at recommended temperature. For most favorable performance, avoid repeated handling and multiple freeze/thaw cycles.
