|Other Names||CDP-diacylglycerol--inositol 3-phosphatidyltransferase, Phosphatidylinositol synthase, PI synthase, PtdIns synthase, CDIPT, PIS, PIS1|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP9044c was selected from the Center region of human CDIPT. 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||Catalyzes the biosynthesis of phosphatidylinositol (PtdIns) as well as PtdIns:inositol exchange reaction. May thus act to reduce an excessive cellular PtdIns content. The exchange activity is due to the reverse reaction of PtdIns synthase and is dependent on CMP, which is tightly bound to the enzyme.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Golgi apparatus membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Membrane|
|Tissue Location||Detected in placenta (at protein level). Widely expressed. Higher expression in adult liver and skeletal muscle, slightly lower levels seen in pancreas, kidney, lung, placenta, brain, heart, leukocyte, colon, small intestine, ovary, testis, prostate, thymus and spleen. In fetus, expressed in kidney, liver, lung and brain.|

CDIPT is a protein which is phosphatidylinositol breakdown products that are ubiquitous second messengers that function downstream of many G protein-coupled receptors and tyrosine kinases regulating cell growth, calcium metabolism, and protein kinase C activity. Two enzymes, CDP-diacylglycerol synthase and phosphatidylinositol synthase, are involved in the biosynthesis of phosphatidylinositol. Phosphatidylinositol synthase, a member of the CDP-alcohol phosphatidyl transferase class-I family, is an integral membrane protein found on the cytoplasmic side of the endoplasmic reticulum and the Golgi apparatus.
