Kit Summary
The Akt phospho-regulation antibody sampler kit can be used to detect Akt activation via Ser-473 phosphorylation, as well as Akt inhibition through Thr-34 phosphorylation. The kit also includes a monoclonal antibody to monitor the total Akt expression levels and secondary reagents for detection of these antibodies.

Western blot analysis of A431 cells untreated (lanes 1 & 3) or treated with 100 ng/ml EGF for 60 min. (lanes 2 & 4). The blots were probed with monoclonal anti-phospho-Akt (Ser-473) (lanes 1 & 2) and monoclonal anti-Akt1 (N-terminal region) (lanes 3 &4).

Western blot analysis of A431 cells, serum starved overnight (20 µg/lanes 1 & 3) and calyculin A (100 nM) treated for 30 minutes (20 µg/lanes 2 & 4). The blot was probed with anti-Akt (Thr-34) (lanes 1 & 2) or anti-Akt1 (N-terminal region) (lanes 3 & 4).

Background
Akt (PKB, Rac kinase) is a 60kDa ser/thr kinase critical for controlling diverse cellular functions, including glucose metabolism, gene transcription, cell proliferation, and apoptosis. Akt phosphorylates a number of substrates including MBP, glycogen synthetase, PKA RII subunit, and histone H1. Akt is activated in response to insulin and growth factors in a PI3-kinase dependent manner. Activation of PI3-Kinase generates phosphatidylinositol 3,4-bisphosphate, which induces membrane translocation of Akt coincident with its phosphorylation at Thr-308 and Ser-473. Upon activation, Akt associates with members of the PKC family of kinases, such as PKCδ and PKCζ. Ceramide-activated PKCζ leads to phosphorylation of Thr-34 within the pleckstrin homology domain of Akt. This phosphorylation inhibits PIP3 binding to Akt preventing activation of the kinase and may lead to cermide-induced cell death.
