Immunogen:synthetic peptide. The epitope recognized by A300-508A maps to a region between residues 350 and 400 of human 5'-AMP-activated Protein Kinase, catalytic Alpha-2 chain using the numbering given in entry AAH69823.1 (GeneID 5563).
Bemerkungen:AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is a heterotrimeric protein made up of a catalytic alpha subunit, and a regulatory beta and gamma subunit. There are two distinct genes for the alpha subunit, alpha1 and alpha2. AMPK alpha 2 is the serine/threonine kinase catalytic subunit of the AMPK. AMPK is responsible for regulating fatty acid and cholesterol synthesis. AMPK is activated in response to a wide variety of metabolic stresses and switches off anabolic pathways when ATP levels are depleted. AMPK alpha 2 is also known as 5-AMP-activated protein kinase catalytic subunit alpha-2, AMPK alpha-2 chain, PRKAA, PRKAA2, AMPK, and AMPK2,
Detection of Human and Mouse AMPK alpha 2 by Western Blot. Samples: Whole cell lysate (50 µg) from HeLa, 293T, Jurkat, mouse Renca, and mouse TCMK-1 cells. Antibodies: Affinity purified rabbit anti-AMPK alpha 2 antibody A300-508A (lot A300-508A-2) used for WB at 0.4 µg/ml. Detection: Chemiluminescence with an exposure time of 3 minutes.
