Data Examples
Detection of Human/Rat Akt2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of MBA-MB-123 human breast cancer cell line, HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line, and C6 rat glioma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.2 µg/mL Human/Mouse/Rat Akt2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2315) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti‑Rabbit IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF008). A specific band for Akt2 was detected at approximately 60 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Detection of Human Akt2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows Recombinant Human Active Akt1 (Catalog # 1775‑KS), recombinant human Akt2, and recombinant human Akt3 (5 ng/lane). PVDF membrane was probed with 0.2 µg/mL Human/Mouse/Rat Akt2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2315) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rabbit IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF008). A specific band for Akt2 was detected at approximately 60 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Detection of Human Akt2 by Simple WesternTM. Simple Western lane view shows lysates of MCF‑7 human breast cancer cell line, loaded at 0.2 mg/mL. A specific band was detected for Akt2 at approximately 60 kDa (as indicated) using 2.5 µg/mL of Rabbit Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat Akt2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2315). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using the
12-230 kDa separation system.

Background: Akt2

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. All three Akts contain an amino-terminal pleckstrin homology domain, a central kinase domain, and a carboxyl-terminal regulatory domain.
