This antibody is predicted to react with mouse, rat, non-human primate and Drosophila based on sequence homology.
Intact IgG appears on a non-reducing gel as ~150 kDa band and upon reduction generating a ~25 kDa light chain band and a ~50 kDa heavy chain.
Recombinant rabbit polyclonal antibodies are unique offerings from Thermo Fisher Scientific. They are comprised of a selection of multiple different recombinant monoclonal antibodies, providing the best of both worlds – the sensitivity of polyclonal antibodies with the specificity of monoclonal antibodies - all delivered with the consistency only found in a recombinant antibody. While functionally the same as a polyclonal antibody – recognizing multiple epitope sites on the target and producing higher detection sensitivity for low abundance targets – a recombinant rabbit polyclonal antibody has a known mixture of light and heavy chains. The exact population can be produced in every lot, circumventing the biological variability typically associated with polyclonal antibody production.
AMPKa belongs to the family of AMP activated protein kinases, that plays a central role in regulating cellular and organismal energy balance in response to the balance between AMP/ATP, and intracellular Ca2+ levels. AMPK exists as a heterotrimer comprising of catalytic alpha subunit, and regulatory beta and gamma subunits. The alpha subunit is activated by increases in the cellular AMP:ATP ratio caused by metabolic stresses, and can mediate the effects of the adipokines leptin and adiponectin. Two isoforms differ in subcellular localization and AMP-dependence. Phosphorylation of threonine 172 in the alpha subunit is a key determinant of AMPK activity.
