Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
  4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.

Antibody Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow

cAMP-dependent Protein Kinase (PKA) is composed of two distinct subunits: catalytic(C) and regulatory (R). Four regulatory subunits have been identified: RIα, RIß, RIIα, and RIIß.These subunits define type I and II cAMP-dependent protein kinases. Following binding of cAMP, the regulatory subunits dissociate from the catalytic subunits, rendering the enzyme active. Type I and type II holoenzymes have three potential C subunits (Cα, Cß, or Cγ). Type II PKA can be distinguished by autophosphorylation of the R-subunits, while type I PKA binds Mg/ATP with high affinity. Most cells express both type I and type II PKAs. Although the Rα isoforms are ubiquitously expressed, the Rß isoforms are predominant in nervous and adipose tissues. Expression of the RIα subunit is modulated during muscle and adipocyte differentiation in vitro.

Format Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
