Mouse anti-M13 phage coat protein g8p

Antibodies recognising M13 filamentous phage coat proteins are instrumental in the selection and detection of phages expressing specific antibody fragments or peptide sequences at their surface. The monoclonal antibodies manufactured and supplied by Exalpha react with either the pIII (g3p) or pVIII (g8p) proteins of M13 filamentous bacteriophage. All antibodies are available in a purified format. The antibodies are fully validated and are suitable for a wide range of techniques including:

  • ELISA
  • Flow Cytometry
  • Western Blot
  • Immunohistochemistry
  • Immunoprecipitation

Background

AKT is a serine/threonine kinase that plays an important role in multiple biological responses including metabolism, cell survival and growth by phosphorylating many proteins including GSK-3β, caspase-9, BAD, and the Forkhead Transcription Factor. AKT is activated by PI3K, which in turn can interact with FAK and other cytoskeletal-associated proteins, thereby linking activation to the cytoskeleton. AKT/PKB is constitutively active in many types of human cancer, and contributes to tumor progression by promoting angiogenesis and cell invasiveness. AKT is fully activated by phosphorylation of threonine 308 by PDK1 and serine 473 by PDK2. The reactivity of this antibody with AKT2 and AKT3 has not been tested.

Image Legend

Proteins from cell extracts of human Jurkat cells (lane 1), mouse 3T3-L1 cells (lane 2), and rat PC-12 cells (lane 3) were resolved by SDS-PAGE and transferred to PVDF. The membranes were incubated with this AKT monoclonal antibody (clone 9Q7) at a concentration of 1 µg/mL for two hours at room temperature. After washing, the membranes were incubated with a goat F(ab’)2 anti-mouse IgG alkaline phosphatase conjugated antibody (Cat. # AMI4405) at a 1:2000 dilution. Bands were detected with CDP-substrate using the WesternStarTM method (Tropix) and Kodak BioMax film.
