|Other Names||Glutamine--fructose-6-phosphate aminotransferase [isomerizing] 1, D-fructose-6-phosphate amidotransferase 1, Glutamine:fructose-6-phosphate amidotransferase 1, GFAT 1, GFAT1, Hexosephosphate aminotransferase 1, GFPT1, GFAT, GFPT|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8887a was selected from the N-term region of human GFPT1. 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||Controls the flux of glucose into the hexosamine pathway. Most likely involved in regulating the availability of precursors for N- and O-linked glycosylation of proteins. Regulates the circadian expression of clock genes ARNTL/BMAL1 and CRY1.|
|Tissue Location||Isoform 1 is predominantly expressed in skeletal muscle. Not expressed in brain. Seems to be selectively expressed in striated muscle.|

GFPT1 is the first and rate-limiting enzyme of the hexosamine pathway and controls the flux of glucose into the hexosamine pathway. This protein catalyzes the formation of glucosamine 6-phosphate.
