Detection of Akt2 in MCF‑7 Human Cell Line by Flow Cytometry. MCF‑7 human breast cancer cell line was stained with Mouse Anti-Human Akt2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB23152, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB002, open histogram), followed by Phycoerythrin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG F(ab')2 Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0102B). To facilitate intracellular staining, cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with saponin.
Akt2 in Human Pancreatic Cancer Tissue. Akt2 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human pancreatic cancer tissue using 25 µg/mL Mouse Anti-Human Akt2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB23152) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific labeling was localized to the cytoplasm in epithelial cells. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

The serine/threonine kinase Akt, also known as protein kinase B (PKB), is a central regulator of such diverse cellular processes as glucose uptake, cell cycle progression, and apoptosis. In mammals, three highly homologous members define the Akt family: Akt1 (PKB alpha ), Akt2 (PKB beta ), and Akt3 (PKB gamma ). Akt2 is expressed predominantly in insulin target tissues such as liver, skeletal muscle, and fat.
