|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IF, E|
|Other Accession||NP_076995, 13129088|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 29 kDa |
Observed: 28 kDa
|Application Notes||ELOVL6 antibody can be used for detection of ELOVL6 by Western blot at 1 - 2 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 5 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||ELOVL6 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||ELOVL6 Antibody 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 elongates fatty acids with 12, 14 and 16 carbons with higher activity toward C16:0 acyl-CoAs. Catalyzes the synthesis of unsaturated C16 long chain fatty acids and, to a lesser extent, C18:0 and those with low desaturation degree. 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.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|

ELOVL6 Antibody: Lipogenesis is a key event in the energy storage system and is controlled by the transcription factor sterol regulatory element-binding protein (SREBP)-1. Elongation of very long chain fatty acids protein 6 (ELOVL6) is a member of fatty acyl-CoA elongase gene family that converts palmitic to stearic acid and it has been shown to be a target of SREBP-1, playing an important role in de novo synthesis of long-chain saturated and monosaturated fatty acids in conjunction with fatty acid synthase and stearoyl-CoA desaturase ELOVL6 was predicted to be important for tissue fatty acid composition. Recent studies suggest that inhibition of this elongase could be a new therapeutic approach for ameliorating insulin resistance, diabetes and cardiovascular risks, even in the presence of a continuing state of obesity.
