|Other Names||Branched-chain-amino-acid aminotransferase, mitochondrial, BCAT(m), Placental protein 18, PP18, BCAT2, BCATM, BCT2, ECA40|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP6950c was selected from the Center region of human BCAT2. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|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||BCATM, BCT2, ECA40|
|Function||Catalyzes the first reaction in the catabolism of the essential branched chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine. May also function as a transporter of branched chain alpha-keto acids.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform A: Mitochondrion.|
