|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IF, FC, E|
|Calculated MW||60587 Da|
|Antigen Region||104-133 aa|
|Other Names||Cystathionine beta-synthase, Beta-thionase, Serine sulfhydrase, CBS|
|Target/Specificity||This CBS antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 104-133 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human CBS.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||CBS Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Hydro-lyase catalyzing the first step of the transsulfuration pathway, where the hydroxyl group of L-serine is displaced by L-homocysteine in a beta-replacement reaction to form L-cystathionine, the precursor of L-cysteine. This catabolic route allows the elimination of L-methionine and the toxic metabolite L- homocysteine (PubMed:23981774, PubMed:20506325, PubMed:23974653). Also involved in the production of hydrogen sulfide, a gasotransmitter with signaling and cytoprotective effects on neurons (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus|
|Tissue Location||In the adult strongly expressed in liver and pancreas, some expression in heart and brain, weak expression in lung and kidney. In the fetus, expressed in brain, liver and kidney|

CBS acts as a homotetramer to catalyze the conversion of homocysteine to cystathionine, the first step in the transsulfuration pathway. This protein is allosterically activated by adenosyl-methionine and uses pyridoxal phosphate as a cofactor. Defects in this gene can cause cystathionine beta-synthase deficiency (CBSD), which can lead to homocystinuria.
