AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is highly conserved from yeast to plants and animals, and plays a key role in regulation of energy homeostasis. The kinase is activated by an elevated AMP-ATP ratio due to cellular and environmental stress, such as heat shock, hypoxia and ischemia. AMPK is also involved in apoptosis. AMP plays an essential role in the activation of AMPK. Firstly, it is required for AMPK phosphorylation by the upstream kinase AMPKK at Thr172. AMPK phosphorylation by AMPKK raises AMPK activity at least 50-fold. Secondly, AMP inhibits the dephosphorylation and inactivation of AMPK by PP2C. The beta1 subunit is post-translationally modified by myristoylation and multi-site phosphorylation. Phosphorylation at serine 108 of the beta1 subunit seems to be required for the activation of AMPK enzyme. Phosphorylation at serines 24, 25 and 182 of the beta1 subunit affects its cellular localization.
Immunogen: Synthetic phosphopeptide corresponding to human AMPK beta1 around the phosphorylation site of serine 182 (S-S-SP-P-P). In general, we may offer more than one antibody to a given target to enable options for the researcher. Available antibodies recognizing Prkab2 are readily searchable from our website. Different antibodies against the same target such as Prkab2 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.
