|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||Q9DA37, NP_653261.1|
|Calculated MW||48321 Da|
|Antigen Region||38-67 aa|
|Other Names||Sphingomyelin synthase-related protein 1, SMSr, 278-, Ceramide phosphoethanolamine synthase, CPE synthase, Sterile alpha motif domain-containing protein 8, SAM domain-containing protein 8, SAMD8|
|Target/Specificity||This SAMD8 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 38-67 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human SAMD8.|
|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||SAMD8 Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Sphingomyelin synthases synthesize sphingolipids through transfer of a phosphatidyl head group on to the primary hydroxyl of ceramide. SAMD8 is an endoplasmic reticulum (ER) transferase that has no sphingomyelin synthase activity but can convert phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) and ceramide to ceramide phosphoethanolamine (CPE) albeit with low product yield. Appears to operate as a ceramide sensor to control ceramide homeostasis in the endoplasmic reticulum rather than a converter of ceramides. Seems to be critical for the integrity of the early secretory pathway.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
