General description

Monoclonal Anti-Protein Kinase Bα (PKBα/Akt1) (mouse IgG1 isotype) is derived from the PKB-175 hybridoma produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from a BALB/c mouse. PKB/Akt is composed of an N-terminal pleckstrin-homology (PH) domain, followed by a catalytic kinase domain and a short C-terminal regulatory domain. This cytoplasmic protein is made up of 480 amino acids. AKT1 is mapped to human chromosome 14q32.

Protein Kinase B (also known as Akt, or RAC-PK) is a protein that belongs to serine/threonine kinases.


Monoclonal Anti-Protein Kinase Bα (PKBα/Akt1) recognizes PKB isoform α.


Synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 461-477 of human PKBα/Akt1, conjugated to KLH. The sequence is identical in mouse, rat, and bovine PKBα/Akt1, highly conserved in PKBβ/Akt2, and diverges in PKBγ.


Monoclonal Anti-Protein Kinase Bα antibody produced in mouse has been used in:
• western blot
• immunofluorescence
• enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA)

Physical form

Monoclonal Anti-Protein Kinase Bα (PKBα/Akt1) is supplied as ascites fluid containing 15 mM sodium azide

Storage and Stability

For continuous use, store at 2-8C for upto one month. For extended storage, freeze in working aliquots. Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Storage in "frost-free" freezers is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify the solution by centrifugation before use. Working dilution samples should be discarded if not used within 12hours.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Protein kinase Bα (PKBα/Akt1) plays a crucial role as a suppressor of apoptotic cell death in different cell types, induced by a variety of stimuli including growth factor withdrawal, loss of cell adhesion and DNA damage. It can protect cerebellar neurons from apoptosis induced by insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) withdrawal. Akt is the cellular homologue of the viral oncogene v-akt of the AKT-8 acute transforming retrovirus found in rodent T cell lymphoma. It is considered to play an important role in the control of cell cycle, cell proliferation and differentiation . AKT plays a key role in angiogenesis.
