|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||22134 Da|
|Antigen Region||170-199 aa|
|Other Names||Phosphatidylethanolamine N-methyltransferase, PEAMT, PEMT, PEMT2, PEMT, PEMPT, PNMT|
|Target/Specificity||This PEMT antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 170-199 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human PEMT.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|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||PEMT Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Catalyzes the three sequential steps of the methylation pathway of phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis, the SAM-dependent methylation of phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) to phosphatidylmonomethylethanolamine (PMME), PMME to phosphatidyldimethylethanolamine (PDME), and PDME to phosphatidylcholine (PC).|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 1: Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Mitochondrion membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Note=Found in endoplasmic reticulum where most PEMT activity is generated and in mitochondria.|

PEMT is an enzyme which converts phosphatidylethanolamine to phosphatidylcholine by sequential methylation in the liver. The protein localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum and mitochondria-associated membranes. The gene is within the Smith-Magenis syndrome region on chromosome 17.
