Question (51129) | Anti-AKT3 + AKT2 + AKT1 antibody [Y89] (ab32505)

Go to datasheet (ab32505)



I was hoping for some advice regarding your antibodies against both AKT 1 or AKT 2 (separately not pan-AKT). I am interested in blotting for truncated mutants of both and therefore need Abs that recognise sequence as near as possible to the N and C terminals. I have narrowed it down to a couple for each situation and, based on more specific details of the immunogen that you may have compared to what is detailed on your website, I wondered if you could recommend which might be best for my purposes (ie. which will bind closest to either the N or C terminal).


N-term; Either ab25893 “Synthetic peptide, consisting of 16 N terminal amino acids of Human AKT1” or ab64936 “Synthetic peptide (Human) from the N terminal region.”

C-term; Either ab32505 “synthetic peptide corresponding to residues in C-terminus of human Akt1.” or ab6076 “Synthetic peptide mapping to the carboxy terminal domain of human AKT1.”


N-term; ab130255 “Recombinant fragment, corresponding to amino acids 2-149 of Human AKT2”, seems to be the best option.

C-term; Either ab39663 “against synthesized non phosphopeptide derived from human AKT2 around the phosphorylation site of serine 474.” or ab5920 “Synthetic peptide (Human)(C terminal).”

Thanks in advance for your help,
