Immunogen A five residue synthetic peptide based on the Human Akt2, coupled to KLH
Isotype IgG
Specificity This antibody detects a ~65kDa protein, corresponding to the molecular mass of Akt2 PKB beta on SDSPAGE immunoblots. Does not react with PKB-alpha (Akt1) or PKB-gamma (Akt3).
Purification Affinity Chromatography
Alternative Name AKT2 / PKB beta
Background The serine/threonine kinase Akt (protein kinase B or PKB) has a central role in the regulation of several signaling pathways controlling cell proliferation, apoptosis, angiogenesis, and diabetes. In humans, there are three genes in the "Akt family": Akt1, Akt2, and Akt3. AKT2 is a putative oncogene and is a general protein kinase capable of phophorylating several known proteins. AKT2 is amplified and overexpressed in some human carcinomas. AKT2 acts primarily as a regulator of glucose metabolism.
Alternate names: Protein kinase Akt-2, Protein kinase B beta, RAC-PK-beta, RAC-beta serine/threonine- protein kinase
Gene ID 208
NCBI Accession NP_001617.1
