Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
ARGP1 , DGAT, DGAT1
Diacylglycerol acyltransferase is also known as DGAT1 is a microsomal enzyme. It is involved in the synthesis of fatty acids into triglycerides. DGAT utilizes diacylglycerol (DAG) and fatty acyl CoA as substrates to synthesize triacylglycerol. DGAT plays an important role in the metabolism of cellular diacylglycerol and is essential in the physiologic processes of higher eukaryotes that includes triacylglycerol metabolism such as intestinal fat absorption, lipoprotein assembly, adipose tissue formation, and lactation.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat
Synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding amino acids 308 of mouse DGAT-1
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-DGAT-1 polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes ~60 kDa DGAT-1 of human, mouse, and rat origins. Reactivity to other species has not been tested.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
