Control Peptide for Akt, 460-480 (PKB, Protein Kinase B, RAC-alpha), cat# A1124-07K

The PKB (RAC/akt) protein kinases are a family of second messenger-regulated serine/threonine kinases. Three mammalian isoforms (alpha, beta, gamma) have been identified so far; the alpha-isoform being the cellular homologue of the v-akt oncogene. Stimulation of cells with growth factors leads to activation of PKB by a phosphoinositide-3-kinase dependent signal transduction pathway.

Sequence: acetyl CRPHFPQFSYSASGTA amide.

Molecular Weight: ~1.75kD

Suitable for use in block specific interaction of A1124-07K Akt, 460-480 antibody. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Should be used at 1ug/ul of antiserum per assay. Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 6 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
