Product nameAnti-AKT2 (phospho S474) antibody
See all AKT2 primary antibodies
DescriptionRabbit polyclonal to AKT2 (phospho S474)
SpecificityAkt2 (phospho-Ser474) antibody detects endogenous levels of Akt2 only when phosphorylated at serine 474. The region of AKT2 surrounding S474 has a high degree of similarity to the corresponding regions in AKT1 and AKT3 and thus may cross react with these proteins if phosphorylated on the corresponding serine residue.
Tested applicationsSuitable for: WB, IHC-P, ICC/IFmore details
Species reactivityReacts with: Mouse, Rat, Human
Synthetic peptide within Human AKT2 aa 432-481 (C terminal) (phospho S474). The exact sequence is proprietary. The antiserum was produced against synthesized phosphopeptide derived from human Akt2 around the phosphorylation site of serine 474.

FunctionGeneral protein kinase capable of phosphorylating several known proteins.
Tissue specificityExpressed in all human cell types so far analyzed.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs 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.
modificationsPhosphorylation 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.

ab38513 staining AKT2 (phospho S474) in 293T cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with formaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.1% Tween and blocked with 3% BSA for 1 hour at room temperature. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/20 in PBS + 3% BSA) for 2 hours. An Alexa Fluor® 555-conjugated donkey anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/500) was used as the secondary antibody.

ab38513 staining AKT2 in human infantile fibromatosis tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and blocked with 1% FBS/BSA for 3 hours at room temperature; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in Tris pH 9. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/150 in TBS + 1% BSA + 1% FBS) for 16 hours. An undiluted HRP-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal was used as the secondary antibody.
