Application Note: A Homogeneous Assay to Quantify Endogenous AKT Phosphorylation in Human Umbilical Vein Endothelial Cells
31 October 2011

AKT (a serine/threonine protein kinase) has become a popular target for drug discovery campaigns, due to the fact that AKT inhibitors may help to treat a number of cancers. In this application note BioTek demonstrates an automated homogeneous assay to probe AKT phosphorylation at its serine 473 residue using endogenous levels of kinase expression within human primary HUVEC cells.
