|Other Names||Lysosomal thioesterase PPT2, PPT-2, 312-, S-thioesterase G14, PPT2|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP2539b was selected from the C-term region of human PPT2 . 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||Removes thioester-linked fatty acyl groups from various substrates including S-palmitoyl-CoA. Has the highest S- thioesterase activity for the acyl groups palmitic and myristic acid followed by other short- and long-chain acyl substrates. However, because of structural constraints, is unable to remove palmitate from peptides or proteins.|
|Tissue Location||Broadly expressed, with highest levels in skeletal muscle.|

PPT2 removes thioester-linked fatty acyl groups from modified cysteine residues in proteins and prefers the acyl groups palmitic and myristic acid over other long-chain acyl substrates. It is a glycosylated lysosomal protein and member of the palmitoyl-protein thioesterase family.
