Our Anti-AKT (Thr342) rabbit polyclonal phosphospecific primary antibody from PhosphoSolutions is produced in-house. It detects drosophila AKT (Thr342) and is antigen affinity purified from pooled serum. It is great for use in WB.
Western blot of Drosophila lysate showing specific labeling of the ~68 kDa AKT protein phosphorylated at Thr342 in the first lane (-). Phosphospecificity is shown in the second lane (+) where the immunolabeling is completely eliminated by blot treatment with lambda phosphatase (λ-Ptase, 1200 units for 30 minutes).
Anti-AKT (Thr342) Antibody
The serine/threonine kinase Akt also known as protein kinase B (PKB) or Rac, plays a crucial role in controlling many diverse and important cellular functions such as cell survival and glycogen metabolism (Hajduch et al., 2001 and Nicholson & Anderson, 2002). Three isoforms (α, β, and γ) have been identified that can be activated rapidly in response to insulin and growth factors in a phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K)-dependent fashion (Hajduch et al., 2003). Phosphorylation of Aktα occurs at two specific regulatory sites in Drosophila, one localized in the kinase domain, Thr342, and the other in the C-terminal regulatory domain, Ser505: these two activation sites are homologous to mammalian Ser473 and Thr308 respectively (Powell et al., 2004).
Antigen Affinity Purified from Pooled Serum
Synthetic phospho-peptide corresponding to amino acid residues surrounding Thr342 of Drosophila AKT, conjugated to keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH)
Storage at -20°C is recommended, as aliquots may be taken without freeze/thawing due to presence of 50% glycerol. Stable for at least 1 year at -20°C.
Prepared from pooled rabbit serum by affinity purification via sequential chromatography on phospho and non-phosphopeptide affinity columns.
10 mM HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 µg per ml BSA and 50% glycerol.
Specific for endogenous levels of the ~68 kDa AKT protein phosphorylated at Thr342. Immunolabeling is completely eliminated with λ-phosphatase treatment. It has been reported that this antibody may also recognize some level of phosphorylated S6K as there is 67% homology with the sequence used as antigen.
Western blots performed on each lot.
