|Other Names||Apolipoprotein O, Protein FAM121B, APOO, FAM121B|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP13324a was selected from the N-term region of APOO. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI 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||Component of the MICOS complex, a large protein complex of the mitochondrial inner membrane that plays crucial roles in the maintenance of crista junctions, inner membrane architecture, and formation of contact sites to the outer membrane. Plays a crucial role in crista junction formation and mitochondrial function (PubMed:25764979). Can promote cardiac lipotoxicity by enhancing mitochondrial respiration and fatty acid metabolism in cardiac myoblasts (PubMed:24743151). Promotes cholesterol efflux from macrophage cells. Detected in HDL, LDL and VLDL. Secreted by a microsomal triglyceride transfer protein (MTTP)-dependent mechanism, probably as a VLDL-associated protein that is subsequently transferred to HDL (PubMed:16956892).|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion inner membrane; Single-pass membrane protein. Secreted. Mitochondrion. Golgi apparatus membrane. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Note=Exists in three distinct forms: a glycosylated and secreted form, an ER/Golgi-resident form and a non-glycosylated mitochondrial form|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in all tissues examined. Up- regulated in diabetic heart.|

This gene is a member of the apolipoprotein family.Members of this protein family are involved in the transport andmetabolism of lipids. The encoded protein associates with HDL, LDLand VLDL lipoproteins and is characterized by chondroitin-sulfateglycosylation. This protein may be involved in preventing lipidaccumulation in the myocardium in obese and diabetic patients.Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.Pseudogenes of this gene are found on chromosomes 3, 4, 5, 12 and16.
