Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 60 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 55 kDa).
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for Flow Cyt,ICC,IHC-P or IP.
  • Target

    • 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.

    • Lane 1: Wild-type HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)
      Lane 2: AKT2 knockout HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)
      Lanes 1 and 2: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab131168 observed at 55 kDa. Red - loading control, ab8226, observed at 42 kDa.

      ab131168 was shown to recognize AKT2 when AKT2 knockout samples were used, along with additional cross-reactive bands. Wild-type and AKT2 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab131168 and ab8226 (loading control to beta Actin) were both diluted 1/1000 and incubated overnight at 4°C. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preadsorbed (ab216773) and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preadsorbed (ab216776) secondary antibodies at 1/10000 dilution for 1 h at room temperature before imaging.
