Batches of this product that have a concentration < 1mg/ml may have BSA added as a stabilising agent. If you would like information about the formulation of a specific lot, please contact our scientific support team who will be happy to help.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/250. Detects a band of approximately 38 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 30 kDa).
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
Non-catalytic subunit of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), an energy sensor protein kinase that plays a key role in regulating cellular energy metabolism. In response to reduction of intracellular ATP levels, AMPK activates energy-producing pathways and inhibits energy-consuming processes: inhibits protein, carbohydrate and lipid biosynthesis, as well as cell growth and proliferation. AMPK acts via direct phosphorylation of metabolic enzymes, and by longer-term effects via phosphorylation of transcription regulators. Also acts as a regulator of cellular polarity by remodeling the actin cytoskeleton; probably by indirectly activating myosin. Beta non-catalytic subunit acts as a scaffold on which the AMPK complex assembles, via its C-terminus that bridges alpha (PRKAA1 or PRKAA2) and gamma subunits (PRKAG1, PRKAG2 or PRKAG3).
Belongs to the 5'-AMP-activated protein kinase beta subunit family.
The glycogen-binding domain may target AMPK to glycogen so that other factors like glycogen-bound debranching enzyme or protein phosphatases can directly affect AMPK activity.
Phosphorylated when associated with the catalytic subunit (PRKAA1 or PRKAA2). Phosphorylated by ULK1; leading to negatively regulate AMPK activity and suggesting the existence of a regulatory feedback loop between ULK1 and AMPK.
The predicted molecular weight of AMPK beta 1 is 30 kDa (SwissProt), however we expect to observe a banding pattern at 38 kDa. Abcam welcomes customer feedback and would appreciate any comments regarding this product and the data presented above.
This blot was produced using a 4-12% Bis-tris gel under the MOPS buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 50 minutes before being transferred onto a Nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 minutes. The membrane was then blocked for an hour using 2% Bovine Serum Albumin before being incubated with ab156890 overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using an anti-rabbit antibody conjugated to HRP, and visualised using ECL development solution ab133406
ab156890 was tested using an Indirect ELISA approach. The wells were coated with peptide (1µg/ml at 100µl/well) overnight at 4°C, followed by a 5% BSA blocking step for 1 hour at room temperature. The primary Ab was then added at a dilution range of 1- 0.00025µg/ml (100µl/well) for 1hr at room temperature. A HRP-conjugated anti-rabbit IgG (heavy and light chain) was used as a secondary antibody at 1:20,000 dilution for 1hr at room temperature.
