Akt, protein kinase B (PKB), is a serine/threonine kinase which is involved in many cellular signaling pathways and acts as a transducer of many functions initiated by growth factor receptors that activat phosphtidylinositol 3-kinase (PI 3-kinase). The major activity of Akt/PKB is to mediate cell survival. Akt/PKB is also believed to be a critical factor in the genesis of cancer as the tumor suppressor PTEN was found to antagonise PI-3 kinase and Akt/PKB kinase activity. Akt/PKB phosphorylation is critical for it activity. The major phosphorylation sites required for Akt activation has been identified as threoinine 308 and serine 473. Serine 473 is phosphorylated by MAPKAP kinase 2.

FAQs for Akt1 Antibody (NB100-56631). (Showing 1 - 1 of 1 FAQ).

  1. I am looking for a antibody that recognizes human Akt1 but NOT Akt2 or 3, for Western blot analyses. I also want that antibody to recognize Akt1 regardless of its phosphorylated form.
    • At the moment we do not have an AKT1 antibody that definitively does not react with either AKT2 or AKT3.
