|Other Names||Carnitine O-palmitoyltransferase 1, liver isoform, CPT1-L, Carnitine O-palmitoyltransferase I, liver isoform, CPT I, CPTI-L, Carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1A, CPT1A, CPT1|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP2524a was selected from the N-term region of human CPT1A . 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 transfer of the acyl group of long-chain fatty acid-CoA conjugates onto carnitine, an essential step for the mitochondrial uptake of long-chain fatty acids and their subsequent beta-oxidation in the mitochondrion. Plays an important role in triglyceride metabolism.|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion outer membrane; Multi- pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Strong expression in kidney and heart, and lower in liver and skeletal muscle|

Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
The mitochondrial oxidation of long-chain fatty acids is initiated by the sequential action of carnitine palmitoyltransferase I (which is located in the outer membrane and is detergent-labile) and carnitine palmitoyltransferase II (which is located in the inner membrane and is detergent-stable), together with a carnitine-acylcarnitine translocase. CPT I is the key enzyme in the carnitine-dependent transport across the mitochondrial inner membrane and its deficiency results in a decreased rate of fatty acid beta-oxidation.
