General description

AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is a metabolic and stress-sensing kinase that regulates homeostasis, and a key target for treating Type 2 diabetes and obesity. AMPK exists as a heterotrimeric complex comprised of catalytic alpha subunits (62 kDa) and non-catalytic beta and gamma subunits. The Alpha subunit has at least two isoforms (alpha 1 and alpha 2) that differ in their subcellular localization and AMP-dependence. AMPK is phosphorylated by upstream kinases, AMPK Kinase (AMPKK) and LKB1 which results in its activation. Active AMPK regulates metabolism by phosphorylating rate-limiting enzymes in metabolic pathways and controlling gene expression. Phosphorylation of threonine 172 in the activation loop of the alpha subunit is a key determinant of AMPK activity.

Specificity

This antibody recognizes AMPKα.

Immunogen

KLH-conjugated, synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids surrounding phosphorylated Thr172 of human AMP-activated protein kinase alpha 2 (AMPKα2). The immunogenic site is conserved in AMPKα1, isoform 1 (Thr174), AMPKα1, isoform 2 (Thr189), and AMPKα2 (Thr172). Accession number NM_006251. The immunizing sequence is identical in rat.

Application

Anti-phospho-AMPKα (Thr172) Antibody is an antibody against phospho-AMPKα (Thr172) for use in WB.
