  • FunctionGeneral protein kinase capable of phosphorylating several known proteins.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in all human cell types so far analyzed.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. AGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family. RAC subfamily.
    Contains 1 AGC-kinase C-terminal domain.
    Contains 1 PH domain.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylation on Thr-309 and Ser-474 is required for full activity.
    Ubiquitinated; undergoes both 'Lys-48'- and 'Lys-63'-linked polyubiquitination. TRAF6-induced 'Lys-63'-linked AKT2 ubiquitination. When fully phosphorylated and translocated into the nucleus, undergoes 'Lys-48'-polyubiquitination catalyzed by TTC3, leading to its degradation by the proteasome.

The antibodies of AKT 1, 2, 3 are very specific. The phospho-specific antibody is specific as well. No cross reactivity to each other.

Thank you so much for your patience, I have only just heard back from the antibody's originator. Ab5920 only recognizes AKT2. If you have any more question, please contact us again.
