|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||Q5F407, Q4R854, Q5REP8|
|Calculated MW||61544 Da|
|Other Names||Alpha-1, 3-mannosyl-glycoprotein 4-beta-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase A, 188.8.131.52, N-glycosyl-oligosaccharide-glycoprotein N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase IVa, GlcNAc-T IVa, GnT-IVa, N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase IVa, UDP-N-acetylglucosamine: alpha-1, 3-D-mannoside beta-1, 4-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase IVa, Alpha-1, 3-mannosyl-glycoprotein 4-beta-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase A soluble form, MGAT4A|
|Target/Specificity||This MGAT4A antibody is generated from a rabbit immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 70-102 amino acids from human MGAT4A.|
|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||MGAT4A Antibody (N-Term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Glycosyltransferase that participates in the transfer of N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) to the core mannose residues of N- linked glycans. Catalyzes the formation of the GlcNAcbeta1-4 branch on the GlcNAcbeta1-2Manalpha1-3 arm of the core structure of N-linked glycans. Essential for the production of tri- and tetra-antennary N-linked sugar chains. Involved in glucose transport by mediating SLC2A2/GLUT2 glycosylation, thereby controlling cell-surface expression of SLC2A2 in pancreatic beta cells.|
|Cellular Location||Alpha-1,3-mannosyl-glycoprotein 4-beta-N- acetylglucosaminyltransferase A: Golgi apparatus membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in pancreas, spleen, thymus, prostate, small intestine, peripheral blood leukocytes and lymph node. Strongly overexpressed in choriocarcinoma cancer cell lines Down-regulated in pancreatic cancer|
