|Other Names||Long-chain-fatty-acid--CoA ligase 6, Long-chain acyl-CoA synthetase 6, LACS 6, ACSL6, ACS2, FACL6, KIAA0837, LACS5|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP2537a was selected from the N-term region of human FACL6 . 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.|
|Synonyms||ACS2, FACL6, KIAA0837, LACS5|
|Function||Activation of long-chain fatty acids for both synthesis of cellular lipids, and degradation via beta-oxidation. Plays an important role in fatty acid metabolism in brain and the acyl-CoAs produced may be utilized exclusively for the synthesis of the brain lipid.|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion outer membrane; Single-pass type III membrane protein. Peroxisome membrane; Single-pass type III membrane protein. Microsome membrane; Single-pass type III membrane protein. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass type III membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Expressed predominantly in erythrocyte precursors, in particular in reticulocytes, fetal blood cells derived from fetal liver, hemopoietic stem cells from cord blood, bone marrow and brain.|

FACL6 is involved in activation of long-chain fatty acids for both synthesis of cellular lipids, and degradation via beta-oxidation. It plays an important role in fatty acid metabolism in brain and the acyl-CoAs produced may be utilized exclusively for the synthesis of the brain lipid. FACL6 is expressed predominantly in erythrocyte precursors, in particular in reticulocytes, fetal blood cells derieved from fetal liver, haemopoietic stem cells from cord blood, bone marrow, and brain. Expression is low at earlier stages of erythroid development but is very high in reticulocytes. This protein is involved in myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) with basophilia, acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) with eosinophilia, and acute eosinophilic leukemia (AEL). It is characterized by a chromosomal translocation t(5;12)(q31;p13) that involves ETV6 and ACSL6.
