Akt1, also known as PKBa, is a serine/threonine kinase that belongs to the Akt family. Akt1 is activated in cells in response to diverse stimuli such as hormones, growth factors and extracellular matrix components and is involved in glucose metabolism, transcription, survival, cell proliferation, angiogenesis, and cell motility (1). Akt1 is frequently over-expressed and active in many types of human cancers including cancers of colon, breast, brain, pancreas and prostate as well as lymphomas and leukemias (2).
Recombinant full-length human Akt1 was expressed by baculovirus in Sf 9 insect cells using an N-terminal GST tag. The gene accession number is NM_005163.
Catalog #A1125-05N
ActivityThe specific activity of Akt1 was determined to be 124 nmol/min/mg using a synthetic peptide substrate (RPRAATF).
