|Antigen Region||186-214 aa|
|Other Names||CMP-N-acetylneuraminate-poly-alpha-2, 8-sialyltransferase, 2499-, Alpha-2, 8-sialyltransferase 8D, Polysialyltransferase-1, Sialyltransferase 8D, SIAT8-D, Sialyltransferase St8Sia IV, ST8SiaIV, ST8SIA4, PST, PST1, SIAT8D|
|Target/Specificity||This ST8SIA4 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 186-214 amino acids from the Central region of human ST8SIA4.|
|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||ST8SIA4 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||PST, PST1, SIAT8D|
|Function||Catalyzes the polycondensation of alpha-2,8-linked sialic acid required for the synthesis of polysialic acid (PSA), which is present on the embryonic neural cell adhesion molecule (N-CAM), necessary for plasticity of neural cells.|
|Cellular Location||Golgi apparatus membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in fetal brain, lung and kidney and in adult heart, spleen and thymus. Present to a lesser extent in adult brain, placenta, lung, large and small intestine and peripheral blood leukocytes|

The protein encoded by this gene catalyzes the polycondensation of alpha-2,8-linked sialic acid required for the synthesis of polysialic acid, a modulator of the adhesive properties of neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM1). The encoded protein, which is a member of glycosyltransferase family 29, is a type II membrane protein that may be present in the Golgi apparatus.
