Western blot analysis of AKT1 was performed with 10 µg of A549 cells transfected with Transfection Reagent alone (Lane 1), 100nM Non-Targeting control siRNA (Lane 2), or 100nM siRNA against AKT1 (Lane 3). Proteins were resolved using a NuPAGE® Novex 4-12% Bis-Tris Gel (NP0322BOX), XCell SureLock™ Electrophoresis System (EI0002), and a protein size ladder. Proteins were wet transferred to a Pierce Nitrocellulose Membrane (Product # 88025) OR Pierce PVDF Membrane (Product # 88518) and blocked with Pierce Starting Block T20 (PBS) Blocking Buffer (37539) for 1 hour at room temperature. AKT1 was detected at ~ 60 kDa using AKT1 Mouse monoclonal antibody (Product # MA5-15187) diluted in Pierce Starting Block T20 (PBS) Blocking Buffer 4°C overnight on a rocking platform. Pierce Goat Anti-Mouse (product # 031437) HRP-Conjugated Antibodies at a 1:2500 dilution were used and chemiluminescent detection was performed using Pierce Supersignal West Dura Maximum Sensitivity Substrate (Product # 37071). Relative density of the bands normalized to GAPDH (36 kDa). AKT1 Antibody (Product # MA5-15187) confirms silencing of AKT1 expression.

The serine-threonine protein kinase encoded by the AKT1 gene is catalytically inactive in serum-starved primary and immortalized fibroblasts. AKT1 and the related AKT2 are activated by platelet-derived growth factor. The activation is rapid and specific, and it is abrogated by mutations in the pleckstrin homology domain of AKT1. It was shown that the activation occurs through phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase. In the developing nervous system AKT is a critical mediator of growth factor-induced neuronal survival. Survival factors can suppress apoptosis in a transcription-independent manner by activating the serine/threonine kinase AKT1, which then phosphorylates and inactivates components of the apoptotic machinery. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene.
