|Other Names||2-acylglycerol O-acyltransferase 2, Acyl-CoA:monoacylglycerol acyltransferase 2, MGAT2, Diacylglycerol acyltransferase 2-like protein 5, Monoacylglycerol O-acyltransferase 1-like, Monoacylglycerol O-acyltransferase 2, Mogat2, Dgat2l5, Mgat1l|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP1122b was selected from the C-term region of human Mouse MOGT2. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Catalyzes the formation of diacylglycerol from 2- monoacylglycerol and fatty acyl-CoA. Has a preference toward monoacylglycerols containing unsaturated fatty acids in an order of C18:3 > C18:2 > C18:1 > C18:0. Plays a central role in absorption of dietary fat in the small intestine by catalyzing the resynthesis of triacylglycerol in enterocytes. May play a role in diet-induced obesity.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Mainly expressed in small intestine. Detected in the small intestine in a proximal-to-distal gradient that correlated with fat absorption pattern. Present not only in the villi, but also in the crypt regions of the small intestine, which suggests that expression occurs prior to the maturation of enterocytes. Not detectable in other sections of the digestive tract, including stomach, cecum, colon and rectum, or other tissues such as kidney, liver and adipocytes (at protein level) Also detected in kidney, adipose and stomach. Expressed at very low level in liver, skeletal muscle and spleen. Not expressed in brain, heart, lung, skin, testis and thymus|
