Immunofluorescent analysis of Phospho-AMPK beta-1 pSer182 in HeLa cells using a Phospho-AMPK beta-1 pSer182 recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibody (Product # 700241) at a dilution of 2.5ug/ml in the absence of peptide (top) and presence of immunogenic peptide (bottom), followed by detection using an Alexa Fluor 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit secondary antibody at a dilution of 1:1000. Actin was stained with Alexa Fluor 568 Phalloidin (Product # A12380). Hoechst only (blue, left), AF488 signal only (green, middle) and composite image with Phalloidin (right).

ABfinity™ recombinant antibodies are rabbit monoclonal antibodies, unmatched for producing superior results. ABfinity™ antibodies are developed by immunizing animals, screening for functionality, cloning the immunogen-specific antibody genes into high-level mammalian expression vectors, produced on a large scale, and purified with Protein A.
ABfinity™ monoclonal antibodies resemble rabbit monoclonals isolated from serum or produced by hybridomas, but demonstrate greater specificity and sensitivity. Because ABfinity™ recombinant antibodies are derived from cloned DNA sequences of the heavy and light antibody chains, they are not susceptible to cell-line drift or lot-to-lot variation, thus allowing for peak specificity and performance.
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.
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.
