|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||26754 Da|
|Antigen Region||97-126 aa|
|Other Names||Cell death activator CIDE-3, Cell death-inducing DFFA-like effector protein C, Fat-specific protein FSP27 homolog, CIDEC, FSP27|
|Target/Specificity||This CIDEC antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 97-126 amino acids from the Central region of human CIDEC.|
|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||CIDEC Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Binds to lipid droplets and regulates their enlargement, thereby restricting lipolysis and favoring storage. At focal contact sites between lipid droplets, promotes directional net neutral lipid transfer from the smaller to larger lipid droplets. The transfer direction may be driven by the internal pressure difference between the contacting lipid droplet pair. Its role in neutral lipid transfer and lipid droplet enlargement is activated by the interaction with PLIN1. May act as a CEBPB coactivator in the white adipose tissue to control the expression of a subset of CEBPB downstream target genes, including SOCS1, SOCS3, TGFB1, TGFBR1, ID2 and XDH. When overexpressed in preadipocytes, induces apoptosis or increases cell susceptibility to apoptosis induced by serum deprivation or TGFB treatment. As mature adipocytes, that express high CIDEC levels, are quite resistant to apoptotic stimuli, the physiological significance of its role in apoptosis is unclear. May play a role in the modulation of the response to osmotic stress by preventing NFAT5 to translocate into the nucleus and activate its target genes expression.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Endoplasmic reticulum. Lipid droplet. Note=Diffuses quickly on lipid droplet surface, but becomes trapped and clustered at lipid droplet contact sites, thereby enabling its rapid enrichment at lipid droplet contact sites|
|Tissue Location||Expressed mainly in adipose tissue, small intestine, heart, colon and stomach and, at lower levels, in brain, kidney and liver.|

DNA fragmentation factor (DFF) induces the fragmentation of DNA associated with apoptosis. A novel family of cell death-inducing DFF45 (MIM 601882)-like effectors (CIDEs), including CIDEC, can also promote apoptosis (Liang et al., 2003 [PubMed 12429024]).
