Whole cell extracts (15 µg total protein) from serum-starved HeLa cells untreated (-) or treated (+) with IGF-1 (100 ng/ml, 30 min), and from serum-starved NIH/3T3 cells untreated (-) or treated (+) with PDGF-BB (200 ng/mL, 15 min) were resolved on a 4-12% Bis-Tris gel, transferred to a PVDF membrane, and probed with 1 µg/mL (1:500 dilution) of purified anti-AKT Phospho (Ser473) (clone A21001C) overnight at 4°C. Proteins were visualized by chemiluminescence detection using HRP goat anti-mouse IgG (Cat. No. 405306) at a 1:3000 dilution. Equal AKT Phospho (Ser473) loading was confirmed by probing membranes with anti-pan AKT1 (clone O94E10) (Cat. No. 680302) at a 1:500 dilution. Direct-Blot™ HRP anti-GAPDH (Cat. No. 607904) was used as a loading control at a 1:50000 dilution. Western-Ready™ ECL Substrate Plus Kit (Cat. No. 426317) was used as a detection agent. Lane M: Molecular weight marker

    Untreated Jurkat cells (positive control, panel A) and Jurkat cells treated with 1 µM wortmannin for 2 hours (negative control, panel B) were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde for 10 minutes, permeabilized with ice cold MeOH for 10 minutes, and blocked with 5% FBS for 60 minutes. Cells were then intracellularly stained with 5.0 µg/mL purified anti-AKT Phospho (Ser473) (clone A21001C) overnight at 4°C, followed by incubation with Alexa Fluor® 594 goat anti-mouse IgG (Cat. No. 405326) at 2.0 µg/mL. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI and the image was captured with a 60X objective. Scale: 50 µm

Description

AKT (also known as protein kinase B alpha) is a 60 kD serine/threonine-specific kinase containing a pleckstrin domain. AKT plays a critical role in controlling survival and apoptosis. This kinase is ubiquitously expressed and translocates to the membrane upon cell activation. It is activated by insulin and various growth and survival factors to function in a wortmannin-sensitive pathway involving PI 3-kinase. AKT is activated by phospholipid binding and activation loop phosphorylation at Thr308 by PDK1 and by phosphorylation within the carboxy terminus at Ser473. The previously elusive PDK2, responsible for phosphorylation of AKT at Ser473, has been identified as a mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) in a rapamycin-insensitive complex with rictor and Sin1. Activated AKT phosphorylates a wide range of substrates including transcription factors (e.g. FOXO1), kinases (GSK-3beta, Raf-1, ASK, Chk1) and other proteins with important signaling roles (e.g. Bad, MDM2). AKT promotes cell survival by inhibiting apoptosis through phosphorylation of several targets, including Bad, forkhead transcription factor, c-Raf and caspase-9. AKT also plays a critical role in cell growth by directly phosphorylating mTOR in a rapamycin-sensitive complex containing raptor. More importantly, AKT phosphorylates and inactivates tuberin (TSC2), an inhibitor of mTOR within the mTOR-raptor complex.

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by western blotting. For western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 0.25 - 1.0 µg/mL. For immunocytochemistry, a concentration range of 2.5 - 5.0 μg/mL is recommended. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤ 0.03 µg per million cells in 100 µL volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
