General description

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.


This antibody recognizes Akt1/PKBα.


Epitope: C-terminus

Sythetic peptide (C-RPHFPQFSYSASGTA) corresponding to the C-terminal (residues 466-480) of rat Akt1/PKBα.


Anti-Akt1 Antibody, clone AW24 detects level of Akt1/PKBα & has been published & validated for use in WB & IP.
