|Other Names||Lactosylceramide 4-alpha-galactosyltransferase, Alpha-1, 4-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase, Alpha-1, 4-galactosyltransferase, Alpha4Gal-T1, CD77 synthase, Globotriaosylceramide synthase, Gb3 synthase, P1/Pk synthase, UDP-galactose:beta-D-galactosyl-beta1-R 4-alpha-D-galactosyltransferase, A4GALT, A14GALT, A4GALT1|
|Target/Specificity||This A4GALT antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 26-54 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human A4GALT.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||A4GALT Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Necessary for the biosynthesis of the Pk antigen of blood histogroup P. Catalyzes the transfer of galactose to lactosylceramide and galactosylceramide. Necessary for the synthesis of the receptor for bacterial verotoxins.|
|Cellular Location||Golgi apparatus membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitous. Highly expressed in kidney, heart, spleen, liver, testis and placenta|

The protein encoded by this gene catalyzes the transfer of galactose to lactosylceramide to form globotriaosylceramide, which has been identified as the P(k) antigen of the P blood group system. The encoded protein, which is a type II membrane protein found in the Golgi, is also required for the synthesis of the bacterial verotoxins receptor.
