Detection of Human/Mouse/Rat AMPK beta 1 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line and C6 rat glioma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL Goat Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat AMPK beta 1 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2854) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF109). For additional reference, recombinant human AMPK beta 1 and AMPK beta 2 (2 ng/lane) were included. A specific band for AMPK beta 1 was detected at approximately 38 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 2.

Background: AMPK beta 1
AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is a heterotrimeric complex consisting of a catalytic alpha subunit and regulatory beta and gamma subunits. Each subunit exists as alternate isoforms ( alpha 1, alpha 2, beta 1, beta 2, gamma 1, gamma 2, gamma 3), with all 12 combinations able to form complexes. The beta 1 subunit is expressed at higher levels than the beta 2 subunit in liver, while beta 2 is more abundant than beta 1 in skeletal muscle. AMPK’s role in metabolic regulation has implicated this serine/threonine kinase complex as a therapeutic target in heart disease, obesity, and diabetes.
