AKT Antibody Description

AKT Antibody detects AKT which is a component of the PI-3 kinase pathway and is activated by phosphorylation at Ser 473 and Thr 308.  AKT is a cytoplasmic protein also known as Protein Kinase B (PKB) and rac (related to A and C kinases). AKT is a key regulator of many signal transduction pathways.  AKT Exhibits tight control over cell proliferation and cell viability.  Overexpression or inappropriate activation of AKT is noted in many types of cancer.   AKT mediates many of the downstream events of PI 3-kinase (a lipid kinase activated by growth factors, cytokines and insulin). PI 3-kinase recruits AKT to the membrane, where it is activated by PDK1 phosphorylation. Once phosphorylated, AKT dissociates from the membrane and phosphorylates targets in the cytoplasm and the cell nucleus.  AKT has two main roles: (i) inhibition of apoptosis; (ii) promotion of proliferation. Anti-AKT Antibody is ideal for investigators involved in Cell Signaling, Neuroscience, Signal Transduction research.
AKT Antibody was produced from whole rabbit serum prepared by repeated immunizations with a synthetic peptide C-R-P-H-F-P-Q-F-S-Y-S-A-S-G-T-A corresponding to the C-terminus (460-480) of human, rat and mouse and chicken AKT proteins conjugated to KLH using maleimide.  A residue of cysteine was added to the amino terminal end to facilitate coupling.
Immunogen Type
Storage Condition
Store Anti-Akt antibody at -20° C prior to opening. Aliquot contents and freeze at -20° C or below for extended storage. Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing. Centrifuge product if not completely clear after standing at room temperature. This product is stable for several weeks at 4° C as an undiluted liquid. Dilute only prior to immediate use.
Application Note
AKT Antibody is suitable for western blotting to detect a single band of the expected apparent molecular weight,  immunohistochemistry (Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded sections), immunofluorescence microscopy using paraformaldehyde-fixed primary cardiomyocyte cultures, immunoprecip-itation, transfected cell culture, primary cell culture and ELISA. Researchers should determine optimal titers for applications that are not stated below.
AKT Antibody reacts with the AKT from human tissues.  Based on sequence we expect this antibody to react as well with rat, mouse, and chicken AKT.
