IP Use at an assay dependent dilution.
ICC Use at an assay dependent dilution.


  • Function
    Anchoring protein that mediates the subcellular compartmentation of protein kinase A (PKA) and protein kinase C (PKC).
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in endothelial cells, cultured fibroblasts and osteosarcoma, but not in platelets, leukocytes, monocytic cell lines or peripherical blood cells.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 3 AKAP domains.
  • Domain
    Polybasic regions located between residues 266 and 557 are involved in binding PKC.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm > cell cortex. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. May be part of the cortical cytoskeleton.

Thank you for your patience.

I sincerely apologize about this delay, but I have good news:

Yes, rat is a tested species and I have updated our datasheet to reflect that. We therefore guarantee this antibodyto work with rat samples.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

Thank you for contacting us.

I have received the following information from the lab so far:

Wedid a Blast comparison of the rat and human proteins and although the overall identity was only 68%, there are long stretches of >90% identity throughout the two sequences, probably accounting for recognition of the rat protein by the antibody.

We are inquiring about why rat is not listed.

I will keep you informed once I receive more information.
Thank you for your patience.

Thank you for contacting us.

The lab is looking into this and will let me know if there is a reason why rat was not listed as tested species. I will get back to you when I have more information.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Thank you for contacting us and for alerting us to the problem you are experiencing with our Anti-AKAP12 antibody ab49849. We take product complaints very seriously, and investigate every product that we feel may not be performing correctly.

Indeed, this antibody has been tested in ICC/IF, and as we have received no complaints about this product, I am concerned it is not working for you. Thus, I would like to investigate this particular case further for you. In order to proceed with this, I have enclosed our questionnaire so that we can gather further information regarding the samples you tested and the protocol you used. I would appreciate if you could complete this, and also provide some information about the self-made antibody (e.g. which part of AKAP12 it recognises and which species it was raised in). I would also appreciate if you could also provide an image which would help us to assess the results.

Once you have submitted the form to us, we will look at the protocol you used and see if there are any suggestions we can make to improve your results. If we determine that the antibody is not working as stated on the datasheet, and as you have purchased it in December (i.e. in the last six months), we would be happy to replace or refund the antibody for you.

We look forward to receiving your reply.

Thank you for contacting Abcam. I have looked at the western blot image that you attached and I believe that the Akap12 band is actually the large band a the top of the image, not marked by a red arrow. If you would like my opinion of which band is the closet to 191kDa, then I would chose the top red arrow, but again I believe the actual Akap12 band is higher. Based on the datasheet and the references listed on the datasheet (PubMed: 21831305), the band that is of interest is at 300kDa. To achieve an image that has better resolution, you could rerun the gel and this time let the gel run longer, so that you get rid of all the low molecular weight products and gain a greater separation of the higher molecular weight proteins. Also using a molecular weight marker, that goes to 300kDa would also allow more accurate sizing. Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.
