PRKAB2 Human Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 296 amino acids (1-272) and having a molecular mass of 32.8kDa. PRKAB2 is fused to a 24 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
PRKAB2 is a regulatory subunit of the AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK). AMPK is a heterotrimer contains an alpha catalytic subunit and non-catalytic beta and gamma subunits. AMPK is a significant energy-sensing enzyme that supervises cellular energy status. AMPK is activated as a reply to cellular metabolic stresses, therefore phosphorylates and inactivates acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACC) and beta-hydroxy beta-methylglutaryl-CoA reductase (HMGCR), vital enzymes involved in regulating de novo biosynthesis of fatty acid and cholesterol. PRKAB2 is a positive regulator of AMPK activity and highly expressed in skeletal muscle.
5'-AMP-activated protein kinase subunit beta-2, AMPK subunit beta-2.
