anti-Prkab2 antibody
In cells, excess of metabolic fuel is converted into fatty acids in cytosol and oxidized later in mitochondria to generate ATP and acetyl-CoA. In fatty acid synthesis, catalytic formation of malonyl-CoA (precursor for long-chain fatty acyl-CoA, LCFA-CoA) from acetyl-CoA by Acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACC-1) is the rate limiting step. The translocation of LCFA-CoA from cytosol to mitochondria, catalyzed by two carnitine palmitoyl transferases (CPT-1 & CPT-2) and regulated by ACC-2, is the rate limiting step of mitochondrial fatty acid ?-oxidation. Activities of ACC-1, ACC-2 and other key proteins of carbohydrate and fat metabolism are regulated by their phosphorylation by 5'-AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK). AMPK switches-off biosynthetic processes when ATP levels are depleted and AMP rises in response to fuel deficiency and treatments like heat shock, ischaemia and exercise. A defect in AMPK switch leads to insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, ketosis resistance and other metabolic derangements in Type 2 diabetes. AMPK also regulates cholesterol biosynthesis via phosphorylation and inactivation of hormone-sensitive lipase and hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA resuctase. It also appears to act as a metabolic stress-sensing protein kinase switching off biosynthetic pathway when ATP levels are depleted and when 5-AMP rises in response to fuel limitation and or hypoxia.

UniProt Comments for Prkab2
AMPKB2: a non-catalytic subunit of AMPK, a conserved kinase of the CAMKL family. AMPK is an energy-sensing protein that plays a key role in regulating cellular energy homeostasis. Environmental stress, such as heat shock, nutrient deprivation, hypoxia and ischemia, indirectly activate AMPK by the depletion of cellular ATP and the concomitant rise of ADP and AMP levels. Allosteric activation is achieved primarily by rising ADP levels, and not solely by AMP levels as previously thought. Activates energy-producing pathways and inhibits energy-consuming processes: inhibits protein, carbohydrate and lipid biosynthesis, as well as cell growth and proliferation. AMPK acts via direct phosphorylation of metabolic enzymes, and by longer-term effects via phosphorylation of transcription regulators. Also acts as a regulator of cellular polarity by remodeling the actin cytoskeleton, probably by indirectly activating myosin. AMPK is a heterotrimer of an alpha catalytic subunit (AMPKA1 or -2), a beta (AMPKB1 or -2) and a gamma non-catalytic subunit (AMPKG1, -2 or -3). Different possible combinations of subunits give rise to 12 different holoenzymes. Beta subunits act as scaffolds on which the AMPK complex assembles, via its C-terminus that bridges alpha and gamma subunits. AMPK-beta1 or -beta2 subunits are required for assembling of AMPK heterotrimers and are important for regulating enzyme activity and cellular localization. AMPK beta1beta2 null mouse muscles reveal an essential role for AMPK in maintaining mitochondrial content and glucose uptake during exercise. Phosphorylation by ULK1 and ULK2 inhibits AMPK activity.
