AKT 3 or Protein Kinase B (PKB ) is a serine/threonine kinase that is a member of the AKTγ (PKBγB family. AKT 3 is activated in cells exposed to diverse stimuli such as hormones, growth factors, and extracellular matrix components (1). AKT 3 phosphorylates and regulates the function of many cellular proteins involved in processes that include cellular metabolism, survival/apoptosis, and proliferation. Recent evidence indicates that AKT 3 is frequently overexpressed in many types of human cancers including breast and prostate (2).

Recognizes the AKT3 protein
Western blot AKT3 from human and mouse cells
AKT3 from other species may also be detectable.
Protein Code: Q9Y243
Store at 4oC (add 0.1% NaN3) for several months, and at -20oC for longer periods. For optimal storage, aliquot target into smaller quantities after centrifugation and store at recommended temperature. For optimal performance, avoid repeated handling and multiple freeze/thaw cycles.
Representative western blot (1:1000) with Anti-AKT3 using 20 ng of human full length recombinant AKT1, AKT2, and AKT3.
