Mouse anti PRKAB1 antibody recognizes 5'-AMP-activated protein kinase subunit beta-1, also known as AMPKb.

AMPK is a serine/threonine protein kinase complex which acts as a sensor of adenine nucleotides, and is activated by low cellular energy. Under these conditions AMPK activates catabolic pathways that generate ATP and deactivates anabolic pathways that consume ATP, restoring energy balance (Lin et al. 2017). Conditions that deplete cellular energy levels include nutrient starvation, hypoxia, and exposure to toxins, inhibiting the mitochondrial respiratory chain and activating AMPK. Activators and inhibitors of AMPK have been suggested as important tools for controlling human diseases including metabolic syndrome and cancer (Kim et al. 2016). In mice, AMPK appears to act as a tumor suppressor and a tumor promoter in different contexts. Prior to cancer development it can act as a suppressor, but switches to being a tumor promoter once cancer has occurred, favoring survival of cancer cells (Vara-Ciruelos et al. 2019).
