  • Function

    Subunit of mTORC2, which regulates cell growth and survival in response to hormonal signals. mTORC2 is activated by growth factors, but, in contrast to mTORC1, seems to be nutrient-insensitive. mTORC2 seems to function upstream of Rho GTPases to regulate the actin cytoskeleton, probably by activating one or more Rho-type guanine nucleotide exchange factors. mTORC2 promotes the serum-induced formation of stress-fibers or F-actin. mTORC2 plays a critical role in AKT1 'Ser-473' phosphorylation, which may facilitate the phosphorylation of the activation loop of AKT1 on 'Thr-308' by PDK1 which is a prerequisite for full activation. mTORC2 regulates the phosphorylation of SGK1 at 'Ser-422'. mTORC2 also modulates the phosphorylation of PRKCA on 'Ser-657'. Plays an essential role in embryonic growth and development.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the RICTOR family.
  • Post-translational

    Phosphorylated by MTOR; when part of mTORC2. Phosphorylated at Thr-1135 by RPS6KB1; phosphorylation of RICTOR inhibits mTORC2 and AKT1 signaling.

rply. Please find here below the discount code for testing the Anti-SIN1 antibody (ab71152) on Zebra fish.

I have checked also for our other antibodies against Rictor.

We do have 8 antibodies tested in Western blot against Rictor, please see below for comments on each of them. I would recommend to test the https://www.abcam.com/RICTOR-antibody-ab105469.htmlas it is a polyclonal antibody against a short sequence, which is conserved to 93%. Please have however a look and let me know. I will then send you a discount code as well for the selected antibody.Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you for your inquiry and your interest in our antibodies!

I have contacted the laboratory to find out whether the immunogen sequence is similar to the Danio rerio sequence. The immunogen sequence is proprietary information, however the laboratory confirmed the following:

Sin1: At the site recognized by the antibody, human Sin1 ab71152 and the Zebrafish sequence (XP_003198622.1) are sufficiently similar to expect a probability of about 50% that the antibody ab71152 will bind Sin1 from Zebrafish.

Rictor: At the site recognized by the antibody, human Rictor ab70373 and the Zebrafish sequence (XP_001921907.1) are sufficiently divergent to expect the antibody ab70373 will not bind Rictor from Zebrafish.

I am very happy therefore to provide you with a discount code for the ab71152. Unfortunately I do not think that it would be the ab70373 is a good choice to test. I will be happy to look for possibility of crossreaction to Zebrafish of any of our other antibodies against rictor. Can you confirm please that you need the antibody for Western blot? Does it need to be a rabbit antibody?

We can do discount codes for different antibodies. However one discount code is always linked to test the antibody we have provided. It can however be redeemed against any of our other primary antibodies.

I look forward hearing back from you in to look for another Rictor antibody and to provide also the discount code for ab71152. Please let me know also if you have any questions or concerns.
