|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IF, E|
|Other Accession||NP_001098028, 157388949|
|Calculated MW||33356 Da|
|Application Notes||ELOVL7 antibody can be used for detection of ELOVL7 by Western blot at 1 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 5 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||ELOVL7 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||ELOVL7 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 with higher activity toward C18 acyl-CoAs, especially C18:3(n-3) acyl-CoAs and C18:3(n-6)-CoAs. Also active toward C20:4-, C18:0-, C18:1-, C18:2- and C16:0-CoAs, and weakly toward C20:0-CoA. Little or no activity toward C22:0-, C24:0-, or C26:0-CoAs. May participate to the production of saturated and polyunsaturated 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|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in most tissues except heart and skeletal muscle.|

ELOVL7 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 7 (ELOVL7) is a member of fatty acyl-CoA elongase gene family that elongates saturated very-long-chain fatty acids (SVLFA, C20:0-) and has been suggested to be involved in prostate cancer growth through saturated long-chain fatty acid metabolism. The metabolic pathways of long-chain fatty acids play an important role in the maintenance of membrane lipid composition and the generation of cell signaling precursor molecules such as eicosanoids and sphingosine-1 phosphate. Overexpression of ELOVL7 results in lipid accumulation in differentiated adipocytes; its expression is regulated by the microRNA miR-219.
