The serine threonine protein kinase encoded by the AKT1 gene is catalytically inactive in serum starved primary and immortalized fibroblasts. AKT1 and the related AKT2 are activated by platelet derived growth factor. The activation is rapid and specific. In the developing nervous system AKT is a critical mediator of growth factor induced neuronal survival. Survival factors can suppress apoptosis in a transcription independent manner by activating the serine/threonine kinase AKT1, which then phosphorylates and inactivates components of the apoptotic machinery. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene (referenced from entrez gene).

FAQs for Akt1 Antibody (NB600-590). (Showing 1 - 1 of 1 FAQs).

  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.
