|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-Tafazzin Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Some isoforms may be involved in cardiolipin (CL) metabolism.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 1: Membrane; Single-pass membrane protein Isoform 3: Membrane; Single-pass membrane protein Isoform 5: Membrane; Single-pass membrane protein Isoform 7: Membrane; Single-pass membrane protein Isoform 9: Cytoplasm.|
|Tissue Location||High levels in cardiac and skeletal muscle. Up to 10 isoforms can be present in different amounts in different tissues. Most isoforms are ubiquitous. Isoforms that lack the N- terminus are found in leukocytes and fibroblasts, but not in heart and skeletal muscle. Some forms appear restricted to cardiac and skeletal muscle or to leukocytes|

This gene encodes a protein that is expressed at high levels in cardiac and skeletal muscle. Mutations in this gene have been associated with a number of clinical disorders including Barth syndrome, dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), hypertrophic DCM, endocardial fibroelastosis, and left ventricular noncompaction (LVNC). Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described. A long form and a short form of each of these isoforms is produced; the short form lacks a hydrophobic leader sequence and may exist as a cytoplasmic protein rather than being membrane-bound. Other alternatively spliced transcripts have been described but the full-length nature of all these transcripts is not known.
