|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||Q95K73, NP_073563.1|
|Calculated MW||36829 Da|
|Antigen Region||286-314 aa|
|Other Names||Elongation of very long chain fatty acids protein 4, 3-keto acyl-CoA synthase ELOVL4, ELOVL fatty acid elongase 4, ELOVL FA elongase 4, Very-long-chain 3-oxoacyl-CoA synthase 4, ELOVL4|
|Target/Specificity||This ELOVL4 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 286-314 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human ELOVL4.|
|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||ELOVL4 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Catalyzes the first and rate-limiting reaction of the four that constitute the long-chain fatty acids elongation cycle. This endoplasmic reticulum-bound enzymatic process, allows the addition of 2 carbons to the chain of long- and very long-chain fatty acids/VLCFAs per cycle. Condensing enzyme that specifically elongates C24:0 and C26:0 acyl-CoAs. May participate to the production of saturated and monounsaturated VLCFAs of different chain lengths that are involved in multiple biological processes as precursors of membrane lipids and lipid mediators. May play a critical role in early brain and skin development.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi- pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in the retina and at much lower level in the brain. Ubiquitous, highest expression in thymus, followed by testis, small intestine, ovary, and prostate. Little or no expression in heart, lung, liver, or leukocates|

ELOVL4 is a membrane-bound protein which is a member of the ELO family, proteins which participate in the biosynthesis of fatty acids. Consistent with the expression of the encoded protein in photoreceptor cells of the retina, mutations and small deletions in this gene are associated with Stargardt-like macular dystrophy (STGD3) and autosomal dominant Stargardt-like macular dystrophy (ADMD), also referred to as autosomal dominant atrophic macular degeneration.
