Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 60 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 56 kDa).


  • Function
    General protein kinase capable of phosphorylating several known proteins.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in all human cell types so far analyzed.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs 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.

Anti-AKT2 antibody images

  • Predicted band size : 56 kDa

    ab9763 used with a stable HEK293 cell line expressing an inducible, myristoylated form of Akt2 (MyrAkt2-ER). In response to 4OHT (tamoxifen), the Akt2 is recruited to the plasma membrane via its myristoylation sequence and becomes phosphorylated and activated. The blot shows 0m, 15m, and 30m of 4OHT treatment (which has no effect on endogenous Akt2, but causes a band shift upwards in the MyrAkt2). Endogenous Akt2 runs at about 60kDa whereas the myristoylated construct runs at around 110kDa.

    The second panel of 3 lanes is pretreated for 15min with 25uM LY294002 which affects the phosphorylation of endogenous Akt2 but has no effect on phosphorylation of the myristoylated construct. This confirms that the antibody picks up phosphorylated and non-phosphorylated forms of Akt2 whether it be endogenous or transfected in.
