Gallery: Immobilized Phospho-(Ser/Thr) Akt Substrate Antibody #9619
Immobilized Phospho-(Ser/Thr) Akt Substrate Antibody is useful for immunoprecipitation of phosphorylated Akt substrate proteins. This antibody recognizes proteins containing phospho-Ser/Thr preceded by Arg or Lys at positions -5 and -3. It shows some cross-reactivity with phospho-Ser/Thr preceded by Arg or Lys at positions -3 and -2. It does not cross-react with other phospho-Ser/Thr-containing motifs. The antibody is immobilized by conjugation of carbohydrates to cross-linked agarose hydrazide beads. (U.S. Patent No's.: 6,441,140; 6,982,318; 7,259,022; 7,344,714; U.S.S.N. 11,484,485; and all foreign equivalents.)Species Reactivity: All Species Expected
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a phospho-Akt substrate peptide. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
An important class of kinases, referred to as Arg-directed kinases or AGC-family kinases, includes cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA), cGMP-dependent protein kinase (PKG), protein kinase C, Akt, and RSK. These kinases share a substrate specificity characterized by Arg at position -3 relative to the phosphorylated Ser or Thr (1,2). Akt plays a central role in mediating critical cellular responses including cell growth and survival, angiogenesis, and transcriptional regulation (3-5). While a number of Akt substrates are known (such as GSK-3, Bad, and caspase-9) many important substrates await discovery. Akt phosphorylates substrates only at Ser/Thr in a conserved motif characterized by Arg at positions -5 and -3 (6). Phospho-Akt substrate-specific antibodies from Cell Signaling Technology are powerful tools for investigating the regulation of phosphorylation by Akt and other Arg-directed kinases, as well as for high throughput kinase drug discovery.
