|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||Q8HXZ6, Q29448, NP_000182.2, NP_001159531.1|
|Calculated MW||34360 Da|
|Antigen Region||161-190 aa|
|Other Names||Hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA lyase, mitochondrial, HL, HMG-CoA lyase, 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutarate-CoA lyase, HMGCL|
|Target/Specificity||This HMGCL antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 161-190 amino acids from the Central region of human HMGCL.|
|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||HMGCL Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Key enzyme in ketogenesis (ketone body formation). Terminal step in leucine catabolism. Ketone bodies (beta- hydroxybutyrate, acetoacetate and acetone) are essential as an alternative source of energy to glucose, as lipid precursors and as regulators of metabolism.|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion matrix. Peroxisome. Note=Unprocessed form is peroxisomal|
|Tissue Location||Highest expression in liver. Expressed in pancreas, kidney, intestine, testis, fibroblasts and lymphoblasts Very low expression in brain and skeletal muscle. The relative expression of isoform 2 (at mRNA level) is highest in heart (30%), skeletal muscle (22%), and brain (14%)|

HMGCL belongs to the HMG-CoA lyase family. It is a mitochondrial enzyme that catalyzes the final step of leucine degradation and plays a key role in ketone body formation. Mutations in this gene are associated with HMG-CoA lyase deficiency. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq].
