|Other Names||Hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA synthase, mitochondrial, HMG-CoA synthase, 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A synthase, HMGCS2|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP6793b was selected from the C-term region of human HMGCS2. 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||This enzyme condenses acetyl-CoA with acetoacetyl-CoA to form HMG-CoA, which is the substrate for HMG-CoA reductase.|
|Tissue Location||Expression in liver is 200-fold higher than in any other tissue. Low expression in colon, kidney, testis, and pancreas. Very low expression in heart and skeletal muscle. Not detected in brain. The relative expression of isoform 3 (at mRNA level) is highest in heart (70%) and skeletal muscle (60%)|

HMGCS2 belongs to the HMG-CoA synthase family. It is a mitochondrial enzyme that catalyzes the first reaction of ketogenesis, a metabolic pathway that provides lipid-derived energy for various organs during times of carbohydrate deprivation, such as fasting.
