Antibodies to this protein (and modification) were previously sold as part of a Thermo Scientific Cellomics High Content Screening Kit. This replacement antibody is now recommended for researchers who need an antibody for high content cell based assays. It has been thoroughly tested and validated for cellular immunofluorescence (IF) applications. Further optimization including the selection of the most appropriate fluorescent Dylight conjugated secondary antibody may have to be performed for your high content assay.
It is not recommended to aliquot this antibody.
Protein kinase A (PKA, cAMP-dependent protein kinase) is a key element of a ubiquitous signaling pathway important in the cell cycle, cellular communication, memory formation and behavior. PKA is composed of two catalytic (PKAc; Protein Kinase A catalytic subunit) and two regulatory subunits (PKAr). Upon binding cAMP, the complex dissociates to PKAr dimer and two activated PKAc ser/thr protein kinase catalytic monomers. The released PKAc can translocate into the nucleus and exert a regulatory role in the activation of multiple nuclear hormone receptors. However, PKAc-mediated activation of tonicity-dependent gene expression is cAMP independent. Humans express three types of PKAc subunit - PKAc alpha is present in most human tissues, PKAc beta and gamma are tissue-specific, the later is found in testes.
