|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||39096 Da|
|Application & Usage||Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes ~45 kDa of CGI-58 in 3T3 cell lysate. Reactivity to other species has not been tested.|
|Other Names||Comparative Gene Identification-58, CGI58, CGI-58, CGI 58|
|Formulation||100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 0.01% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||CGI-58 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Lysophosphatidic acid acyltransferase which functions in phosphatidic acid biosynthesis (PubMed:18606822). May regulate the cellular storage of triacylglycerol through activation of the phospholipase PNPLA2 (PubMed:16679289). Involved in keratinocyte differentiation (PubMed:18832586). Regulates lipid droplet fusion (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Lipid droplet. Note=Colocalized with PLIN and ADRP on the surface of lipid droplets. The localization is dependent upon the metabolic status of the adipocytes and the activity of PKA (By similarity).|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed in various tissues, including lymphocytes, liver, skeletal muscle and brain. Expressed by upper epidermal layers and dermal fibroblasts in skin, hepatocytes and neurons (at protein level).|

Comparative Gene Identification-58 (CGI-58) is a causal gene of Dorfman-Chanarin syndrome, a neutral lipid storage disease characterized by the presence of intracellular lipid droplets in tissues. CGI-58 comes from a large family of proteins characterized by an α/β hydrolase fold that activates adipose triglyceride lipase thus, may involve in lipid metabolism.
