AKT Antibody Description


AKT 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.

Anti-AKT antibody was affinity purified antibody was prepared by repeated immunizations with a synthetic peptide corresponding to an internal region of human AKT1 protein.  A residue of cysteine was added to facilitate coupling.

Immunogen Type


Storage Condition

Store Anti-AKT at -20 °C prior to opening. Aliquot antibody 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

This Anti-AKT affinity purified antibody is suitable for ELISA and western blotting.  Specific conditions for reactivity should be optimized by the end user for IF and IHC.  Expect a band approximately 55-60 kDa in size corresponding to AKT1 by western blotting in the appropriate cell lysate or extract. Cell Signaling, Neuroscience, Signal Transduction research.


This antibody is directed against AKT and reacts with the AKT from human tissues.  Based on sequence we expect this antibody to react as well with rat, mouse and chicken AKT.
