Store vial at -20° C or below prior to opening. This vial contains a relatively low volume of reagent (25 µL). To minimize loss of volume dilute 1:10 by adding 225 µL of the buffer stated above directly to the vial. Recap, mix thoroughly and briefly centrifuge to collect the volume at the bottom of the vial. Use this intermediate dilution when calculating final dilutions as recommended below. Store the vial at -20°C or below after dilution. Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing.
Anti-AKT Antibody is suitable for ELISA, immunohistochemistry, immunoprecipitation and western blotting. Expect a band approximately 54 - 56 kDa in size corresponding to AKT protein by western blotting in the appropriate cell lysate or extract. This monoclonal antibody reacts with human and mouse AKT. Specific conditions for reactivity should be optimized by the end user. For immunohistochemistry we recommend the use of fresh frozen tissues. Attempts at staining paraffin-embedded formalin fixed tissues were negative. No pre-treatment of sample is required.
Anti-AKT Antibody was purified by Protein A chromatography. This antibody is specific for human and mouse AKT protein. A BLAST analysis was used to suggest cross-reactivity with AKT1, AKT2, and AKT3 from human, mouse, rat and chimpanzee sources based on 100% homology with the immunizing sequence. Cross-reactivity with AKT1, 2, 3 was determined with Western Blot. Cross reactivity of AKT from other sources has not been determined. AKT antibody is suitable for Cell Signaling, Neuroscience, Signal Transduction research.
