Real-time visualization and quantification of Akt activity using live-cell imaging

Human cells imaged with a flow cytometer

Akt is a serine/threonine protein kinase that is upregulated across various diseases and has been extensively studied as a therapeutic target. In this webinar, John Rauch, senior scientist at Sartorius, and Jasmine Trigg, scientist at Sartorius, will demonstrate the utility of the Incucyte® Kinase Akt Lentivirus Reagent. This biosensor enables Akt activity to be monitored in real-time, providing kinetic data on Akt activation and inhibition in living cells within a physiologically relevant environment.
