Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
PKB, RAC, Akt 1, Akt 2, Akt 3
Akt, also referred to as PKB and RAC, is the cellular homologue of the viral oncogene v-Akt. This protein kinase is activated by insulin and various growth factors and functions in a pathway involving PI3 kinase as activation is sensitive to wortmanin. Recent evidence sμggests that Akt functions to promote cell survival by actively inhibiting apoptosis.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat, bovine
Synthetic peptide corresponding to residue surrounding amino acid 80 of human Akt
