The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 - 5 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 30 kDa.
FunctionAMPK is responsible for the regulation of fatty acid synthesis by phosphorylation of acetyl-CoA carboxylase. Also regulates cholesterol synthesis via phosphorylation and inactivation of hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA reductase and hormone-sensitive lipase. This is a regulatory subunit, may be a positive regulator of AMPK activity. It may also serve as an adapter molecule for the catalytic alpha-subunit.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the 5'-AMP-activated protein kinase beta subunit family.
Post-translational modificationsPhosphorylated when associated with the catalytic subunit.
