|Application ||WB, IHC-P, FC, E|
|Calculated MW||50471 Da|
|Antigen Region||362-390 aa|
|Other Names||2-oxoisovalerate dehydrogenase subunit alpha, mitochondrial, Branched-chain alpha-keto acid dehydrogenase E1 component alpha chain, BCKDE1A, BCKDH E1-alpha, BCKDHA|
|Target/Specificity||This BCKDHA antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 362-390 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human BCKDHA.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|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||BCKDHA Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||The branched-chain alpha-keto dehydrogenase complex catalyzes the overall conversion of alpha-keto acids to acyl-CoA and CO(2). It contains multiple copies of three enzymatic components: branched-chain alpha-keto acid decarboxylase (E1), lipoamide acyltransferase (E2) and lipoamide dehydrogenase (E3).|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion matrix.|

The branched-chain alpha-keto acid (BCAA) dehydrogenase(BCKD) complex is an innter mitochondrial enzyme complex that catalyzes the second major step in the catabolism of the branched-chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine. The BCKD complex consists of three catalytic components: a heterotetrameric (alpha2-beta2) branched-chain alpha-keto acid decarboxylase (E1), a dihydrolipoyl transacylase (E2), and a dihydrolipoamide dehydrogenase (E3). BCKDHA is the alpha subunit of the decarboxylase (E1) component.
