Detection of Human, Mouse, and Rat PI 3‑Kinase p55 gamma by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HEK293 human embryonic kidney cell line, NIH‑3T3 mouse embryonic fibroblast cell line, and L6 rat myoblast cell line. PVDF Membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Human/Mouse/Rat PI 3‑Kinase p55 gamma Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6638) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for p55 gamma at approximately 55 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: PI 3-Kinase p55 gamma
p55 gamma (Protein of 55 kDa, gamma subunit; also PI3-kinase regulatory subunit gamma and p55PIK) is a 55-57 kDa member of the PI3K p85 family of regulatory subunits. It is widely expressed, and serves as a recruitment subunit for the p110 catalytic subunit of PI3 kinase. p55 gamma /p55PIK should not be confused with the 55 kDa alpha splice variant of the p85a gene (75% amino acid [aa] identity). Human p55 gamma is 461 aa in length. It contains a unique 34 aa N-terminus that binds Rb and prevents cycle progression, followed by a Pro-rich region (aa 35-44) and two SH2 domains that bind the p110 catalytic subunit (aa 65-160 and 358-452). Based on mouse, it is likely that alternate start sites at Met8 and Met32 generate 54 and 50 kDa protein products, respectively. There is also a potential for a start site 18 aa upstream of the standard start site, as well as a splice form that shows a deletion of aa 256-314 that may be accompanied by an additional deletion of aa 36-71. Over aa 251-378, human p55 gamma shares 94% aa identity with mouse p55 gamma.
