AKT pS473 Antibody Description

Background
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 AKT1, 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 phos-phorylated, AKT dissociates from the membrane and phos-phorylates targets in the cytoplasm and the cell nucleus.  AKT has two main roles: (i) inhibition of apoptosis; (ii) promotion of proliferation.

RAC-PK-alpha, Protein kinase B, PKB, C-AKT, RAC-alpha serine/threonine-protein kinase, Proto-oncogene c-Akt, AKT1, AKT 1, AKT-1
Immunogen
This whole rabbit serum was prepared by repeated immunizations with a synthetic peptide corresponding to the C-terminus aa 460-480 of human, mouse, rat and chicken AKT proteins conjugated to KLH.
Immunogen Type
Peptide
Post Translational Modification
Phosphorylation
Storage Condition
Store vial 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
This antibody is phospho specific for pS473 and is suitable for western blotting, immunohistochemistry (formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded sections), immunofluorescence and ELISA. By immunoblot a single band of the expected apparent molecular weight is observed.  For immunohistochemistry no pre-treatment of sample is required.
Purity/Specifity
This product was prepared from monospecific antiserum by immunoaffinity chromatography using phospho peptide coupled to agarose beads followed by solid phase adsorption(s) against non-phospho peptide and non-specific peptide to remove any unwanted reactivities. Assay by immunoelectrophoresis resulted in a single precipitin arc against anti-Rabbit Serum.  This antibody is specific for phosphorylated human AKTpS473.  Minimal reactivity occurs against non-phosphorylated AKT.  Reactivity against AKT from other species may occur but has not yet been tested.
