Please refer to the product datasheet for known applications of a given antibody. We\'ve tested the Rabbit anti Phospho- AMPK alpha 1 (pThr 172) with the following immunoassay(s):
AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is highly conserved from yeast to plants and animals and plays a key role in the regulation of energy balance at both the cellular and the whole body levels. Once activated, it affects a metabolic switch from an anabolic to a catabolic state, both by acutely phosphorylating metabolic enzymes and, in the longer term, by regulating gene expression. AMPK is a heterotrimeric complex composed of a catalytic alpha subunit and regulatory beta and gamma subunits. Binding APM to the beta domains triggers increased phosphorylation at Thr172 on the activation loop of the alpha subunit. AMP Phosphorylation at Thr172 is catalyzed by the tumor suppressor kinase LKB1 or CaMKK-beta, TGF-beta activated kinase-1 (TAK1). AMPKalpha is also phosphorylated at Thr258 and Ser485 (for alpha1; Ser491 for alpha2).
Antigen Preparation: A synthetic peptide surrounding to the epitope -LRTSC- with a phosphorylation site at Thr 172 of AMPK alpha 1 protein from human origin. It is identical among human, mouse, rat, chicken, bovine, dog, and insect species. Positive Control: Serum starved HEK293
Cellular Location: Cytoplasmic. In general, we may offer more than one antibody to a given target to enable options for the researcher. Available antibodies recognizing AMPK-alpha (pT172) are readily searchable from our website. Different antibodies against the same target such as AMPK-alpha (pT172) may be optimized or tested for different applications and species. This enables researchers to select the option that may be best for their model system, to screen more than antibody to determine which one may be best for their model system, as well as to use more than one antibody to follow up on and validate their results.
