Detection of Phospho-Akt (S473) in Jurkat Human Cell Line by Flow Cytometry. Jurkat human acute T cell leukemia cell line either untreated (open histogram), or treated with 100 nM Calyculin for 30 min (filled histogram), was stained with Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse Phospho-Akt (S473) Alexa Fluor® 488‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # IC7794G). To facilitate intracellular staining, cells were fixed with Flow Cytometry Fixation Buffer (Catalog # FC004) and permeabilized with Flow Cytometry Permeabilization/Wash Buffer I (Catalog # FC005).

Akt, also known as Protein Kinase B (PKB), is a central kinase in such diverse cellular processes as glucose uptake, cell cycle progression, and apoptosis. Three highly homologous members define the Akt family: Akt1 (PKB alpha ), Akt2 (PKB beta ), and Akt3 (PKB gamma ). All three Akts contain an amino-terminal pleckstrin homology domain, a central kinase domain, and a carboxyl-terminal regulatory domain. Akt1 is the most widely expressed family member and is frequently activated in a number of carcinomas, including breast, prostate, lung, pancreatic, liver, ovarian, and colorectal cancer. Akt1 is activated in a multistep process that involves the sequential phosphorylation of Thr450 by JNK kinases, Thr308 by PDK1, and Ser473 by PDK2 or mTORC2. Activated Akt1 phosphorylates a wide variety of cytosolic, nuclear, and mitochondrial substrates. Human Akt1 shares 98% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat Akt1.
