|Calculated MW||39096 Da|
|Application & Usage||The peptide is used for blocking the antibody activity of CGI-58. It usually blocks the antibody activity completely in Western blot analysis by incubating the peptide with equal volume of antibody for 30-60 minutes at 37°C.|
|Other Names||1-acylglycerol-3-phosphate O-acyltransferase ABHD5, 126.96.36.199, Abhydrolase domain-containing protein 5, Lipid droplet-binding protein CGI-58, ABHD5, NCIE2|
|Formulation||50 µg (0.5 mg/ml) in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 50% glycerol, 1% BSA and 0.02% thimerosal.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||CGI-58 Blocking Peptide is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Lysophosphatidic acid acyltransferase which functions in phosphatidic acid biosynthesis (PubMed:18606822). May regulate the cellular storage of triacylglycerol through activation of the phospholipase PNPLA2 (PubMed:16679289). Involved in keratinocyte differentiation (PubMed:18832586). Regulates lipid droplet fusion (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Lipid droplet. Note=Colocalized with PLIN and ADRP on the surface of lipid droplets. The localization is dependent upon the metabolic status of the adipocytes and the activity of PKA (By similarity).|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed in various tissues, including lymphocytes, liver, skeletal muscle and brain. Expressed by upper epidermal layers and dermal fibroblasts in skin, hepatocytes and neurons (at protein level).|
