Store as concentrated solution. Centrifuge briefly prior to opening vial. For short-term storage (1-2 weeks), store at 4ºC. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20ºC or below. Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 461-477 of human PKBα/Akt1, conjugated to KLH. The sequence is identical in mouse, rat, and bovine PKBα/Akt1, highly conserved in PKBβ/Akt2, and diverges in PKBγ.
For laboratory use only. Not for any clinical, therapeutic, or diagnostic use in humans or animals. Not for animal or human consumption.

The Akt family of serine/threonine protein kinases (also called protein kinase B/PKB) plays a key role in insulin signaling, cellular survival, and transformation. Akt1 is activated by phosphorylation on residues threonine 308 and Serine 473. Thr308, in the catalytic domain, is phosphorylated by the protein kinase PDK1, and Ser473, in the COOH-terminal regulatory domain, is phosphorylated by putative serine 473 kinase. To date, a couple of proteins have been shown to physically interact with PKB.
