Alternate Names for AKT [p Ser473] Antibody - Pan Specific

  • AKT serine/threonine kinase 1
  • Akt
  • PKB
  • RAC


Akt1, Akt2, and Akt3 make up a family of serine/threonine kinases, often activated downstream of growth factor receptors and PI 3-Kinase. Each Akt family member contains an N-terminal pleckstrin homology (PH) domain, a central kinase domain, and a C-terminal regulatory domain. They have putative roles in cell proliferation and survival, and Akt perturbations are thought to play an important role in tumorigenesis.


This product is for research use only and is not approved for use in humans or in clinical diagnosis. Primary Antibodies are guaranteed for 1 year from date of receipt.
