General description

Anti-AKT2 antibody, Mouse monoclonal, (mouse IgG2a isotype) is derived from the AKT2(104) hybridoma produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from a BALB/c mouse. v-akt murine thymoma viral oncogene homolog 2 (AKT2) protein belongs to the subfamily of three closely related protein serine/threonine kinases. AKT2 is localized in the insulin-responsive tissues like adipose tissue, liver and skeletal muscle. It comprises of N-terminal regulatory pleckstrin homology (PH) domain, a central kinase domain with serine/threonine specificity and a C-terminal hydrophobic domain. It is mapped on the human chromosome at 19q13.2.


synthetic peptide from the internal region of human AKT2 protein, conjugated to KLH


Anti-AKT2 antibody, Mouse monoclonal may be used in immunoblotting.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide

Biochem/physiol Actions

v-akt murine thymoma viral oncogene homolog 2 (AKT2) is a key mediator of the insulin signal transduction process and is required for glucose metabolism. AKT2 plays an important role in the phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) signaling pathway and is over-expressed in a variety of malignant tumors. it is considered to be a useful molecular marker for predicting the prognosis of meningioma and breast cancer. Due to its important role in neuroblastoma tumorigenesis, it can be used as a target for developing novel therapeutics for the treatment of clinically aggressive neuroblastoma.
