AKT1 (AKT serine/threonine kinase 1) is also called as v-akt murine thymoma viral oncogene homolog 1 and PKBα (protein kinase B). It is expressed in liver, muscle and adipocytes. AKT1 gene is mapped to human chromosome 14q32. It is a member of AKT family that has an amino-terminal pleckstrin homology (PH) domain, a short α helical linker and a carboxyl-terminal kinase domain.
The antiserum was produced against synthesized peptide derived from human Akt around the phosphorylation site of Ser473.
Immunogen Range: 431-480
