|Other Names||Serine palmitoyltransferase 2, Long chain base biosynthesis protein 2, LCB 2, Long chain base biosynthesis protein 2a, LCB2a, Serine-palmitoyl-CoA transferase 2, SPT 2, SPTLC2, KIAA0526, LCB2|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP2533a was selected from the N-term region of human SPTLC2 . 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||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.|

Serine palmitoyltransferase (SPT) is the key enzyme in sphingolipid biosynthesis. It catalyzes the pyridoxal-5-prime-phosphate-dependent condensation of L-serine and palmitoyl-CoA to 3-oxosphinganine.
