|Other Names||Branched-chain-amino-acid aminotransferase, cytosolic, BCAT(c), Protein ECA39, BCAT1, BCT1, ECA39|
|Target/Specificity||This BCAT1 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 81-107 amino acids from the Central region of human BCAT1.|
|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||BCAT1 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Catalyzes the first reaction in the catabolism of the essential branched chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine.|
|Tissue Location||During embryogenesis, expressed in the brain and kidney. Overexpressed in MYC-induced tumors such as Burkitt's lymphoma|

This gene encodes the cytosolic form of the enzyme branched-chain amino acid transaminase. This enzyme catalyzes the reversible transamination of branched-chain alpha-keto acids to branched-chain L-amino acids essential for cell growth. Two different clinical disorders have been attributed to a defect of branched-chain amino acid transamination: hypervalinemia and hyperleucine-isoleucinemia. As there is also a gene encoding a mitochondrial form of this enzyme, mutations in either gene may contribute to these disorders. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described.
