|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||NP_036211, 8694, 13350 (mouse), 84497 (rat)|
|Calculated MW||55278 Da|
|Other Names||Diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase 1, 22.214.171.124, ACAT-related gene product 1, Acyl-CoA retinol O-fatty-acyltransferase, ARAT, Retinol O-fatty-acyltransferase, 126.96.36.199, Diglyceride acyltransferase, DGAT1, AGRP1, DGAT|
|Format||0.5 mg IgG/ml in Tris saline (20mM Tris pH7.3, 150mM NaCl), 0.02% sodium azide, with 0.5% bovine serum albumin|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Goat Anti-DGAT1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Catalyzes the terminal and only committed step in triacylglycerol synthesis by using diacylglycerol and fatty acyl CoA as substrates. In contrast to DGAT2 it is not essential for survival. May be involved in VLDL (very low density lipoprotein) assembly. In liver, plays a role in esterifying exogenous fatty acids to glycerol. Functions as the major acyl-CoA retinol acyltransferase (ARAT) in the skin, where it acts to maintain retinoid homeostasis and prevent retinoid toxicity leading to skin and hair disorders.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|

The enzyme encoded by this gene utilizes diacylglycerol and fatty acyl CoA as substrates in order to catalyze the final stage of triacylglycerol synthesis. It is also involved in cellular as well as physiological metabolic processes.
