  • Function

    Responsible for the regulation of fatty acid synthesis by phosphorylation of acetyl-CoA carboxylase. It also regulates cholesterol synthesis via phosphorylation and inactivation of hormone-sensitive lipase and hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA reductase. Appears to act as a metabolic stress-sensing protein kinase switching off biosynthetic pathways when cellular ATP levels are depleted and when 5'-AMP rises in response to fuel limitation and/or hypoxia. This is a catalytic subunit.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CAMK Ser/Thr protein kinase family. SNF1 subfamily.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for contacting us.

Unfortunately, we have not tested this antibody for cross reactivity with AMPK alpha 2 and are unsure whether it will cross react with this protein as we do not have any data for support.

We do offer two other products against AMPK alpha 2 which may satisfy your requirement however. According to the information available to us and on the datasheet, Ab3759 does not react withAMPK alpha 2 (https://www.abcam.com/AMPK-alpha-1-antibody-ab3759.html).

Ab31958 has not been tested for cross reactivity however a BLAST of the immunogen sequence did not reveal appropriate homology with AMPK alpha 1 to suggest cross reactivity (https://www.abcam.com/AMPK-alpha-1-antibody-ab31958.html).

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