|Application ||WB, IF, ICC, E|
|Other Accession||NP_004854, 4758668|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||62924 Da|
|Application Notes||SPT2 antibody can be used for detection of SPT2 by Western blot at 1 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry starting at 10 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||SPTLC2; At least three isoforms of SPT2 are known to exist; this antibody will not detect isoform b. SPT2 antibody is predicted to not cross-react with SPT1.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||SPT2 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||SPT2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Serine palmitoyltransferase (SPT). The heterodimer formed with LCB1/SPTLC1 constitutes the catalytic core. The composition of the serine palmitoyltransferase (SPT) complex determines the substrate preference. The SPTLC1-SPTLC2-SPTSSA complex shows a strong preference for C16-CoA substrate, while the SPTLC1-SPTLC2-SPTSSB complex displays a preference for C18-CoA substrate.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed.|

SPT2 Antibody: Serine palmitoyltransferase (SPT), which consists of two different subunits, is the key enzyme in sphingolipid biosynthesis. It converts L-serine and palmitoyl-CoA to 3-oxosphinganine with pyridoxal 5'-phosphate as a cofactor. SPT2 is the long chain base subunit 2 of mammalian serine palmitoyltransferase. SPT2 is catalytically active but needs its related protein SPT1 for its stabilization and anchoring the holoenzyme to the cytosolic face of the endoplasmic reticulum. As in the case with SPT1, mutations in the SPT2 gene can cause hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy type I (HSAN-I), resulting from a loss of SPT activity as well as the accumulation of the atypical and neurotoxic sphingoid metabolite 1-deoxy-sphinganine.
