Technical Data
Akt1, (Rac PKa, PKBa), phosphorylated (Thr308)
Akt1/PKBa is a Ser/Thr protein kinase, whose kinase activity plays a key role in various cellular functions, including apoptosis, glycogen synthesis, and cell growth. Akt1/PKBa is activated by various growth and survival factors (1). Phosphorylation on Thr308, Ser473 and Tyr474 is required for full activity. Akt1/PKBa inhibits apoptosis by phosphorylating and inactivating several targets, including caspase-9 (2). Akt1/PKBa regulates glycogen synthesis by phosphorylating and inactivating glycogen synthase kinase-3a and b (3, 4). Three mammalian Akt1/PKBa isoforms have been identified.

Suitable for use in Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 1:5,000 -10,000
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage, store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20°C. 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.
