|Application ||WB, IF, E|
|Other Accession||NP_056984, 7706661|
|Calculated MW||50 kDa|
|Application Notes||PLA1A antibody can be used for detection of PLA1A by Western blot at 1 - 2 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||PLA1A; At least three isoforms of PLA1A are known to exist; this antibody will detect all three isoforms.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||PLA1A 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||PLA1A Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Hydrolyzes the ester bond at the sn-1 position of glycerophospholipids and produces 2-acyl lysophospholipids. Hydrolyzes phosphatidylserine (PS) in the form of liposomes and 1- acyl-2 lysophosphatidylserine (lyso-PS), but not triolein, phosphatidylcholine (PC), phosphatidylethanolamine (PE), phosphatidic acid (PA) or phosphatidylinositol (PI). Isoform 2 hydrolyzes lyso-PS but not PS. Hydrolysis of lyso-PS in peritoneal mast cells activated by receptors for IgE leads to stimulate histamine production.|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed. Expressed in placenta, prostate and liver. Weakly or not expressed in skin, leukocytes, platelets, colon, spleen, lung, muscle and kidney|

PLA1A Antibody: PLA1A is a phospholipase that hydrolyzes fatty acids at the sn-1 position of phosphatidylserine and 1-acyl-2-lysophosphatidylserine. This secreted protein hydrolyzes phosphatidylserine (PS) in liposomes and can also hydrolyze PS in apoptotic cells and activate platelets where the resulting 2-acyl-lysophosphatidylserine acts as a lipid mediator for mast cells, T cells, and neural cells, suggesting that a major function of PLA1A may be the production of lysophospholipid mediators. PLA1A is upregulated in rat peripheral blood cells bearing long-term surviving cardiac allograft. PLA1A is also expressed in human THP-1-derived macrophages and this expression is upregulated in cells treated with lipopolysaccharide, a TLR4 ligand. This upregulation is inhibited with corticosteroids, which are often used at high dosages to suppress chronic allograft rejection.
