Description :Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody
Specificity :Recognizes the AKT1 protein
Cited Applications :WB, ELISA, IF, IHC
Cross Reactivity :Human, Mouse and Rat
Host / Isotype / Clone# :Rabbit, IgG
Immunogen :AKT1 antibody was raised against a 16 amino acid synthetic peptide from near the amino-terminus of human AKT1
Purification :Affinity chromatography
Stability :Store at 4oC (add 0.1% NaN3) for several months, and at -20oC for longer periods. 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.
Sample Data :Western blot analysis of AKT1 in human liver cell lysate with AKT1 antibody at (A) 1 and (B) 2 ug/ml.
Sample Data :Immunohistochemistry of AKT1 in human liver cells with AKT1 antibody at 2 ug/ml.
Scientific Background :AKT1/PKBalpha is a serine/threonine kinase that belongs to the AKT family. AKT1 is activated in cells in response to diverse stimuli such as hormones, growth factors and extracellular matrix components and is involved in glucose metabolism, transcription, survival, cell proliferation, angiogenesis, and cell motility (1). AKT1 is frequently overexpressed and active in many types of human cancers including cancers of colon, breast, brain, pancreas and prostate as well as lymphomas and leukemias (2).
