The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 55 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 55 kDa).
Tissue specificityUbiquitously expressed. Both isoforms are produced by all tissues. Isoform 2 is 10-fold less abundant than isoform 1.
PathwayPurine metabolism; AMP biosynthesis via de novo pathway; AMP from IMP: step 2/2. Purine metabolism; IMP biosynthesis via de novo pathway; 5-amino-1-(5-phospho-D-ribosyl)imidazole-4-carboxamide from 5-amino-1-(5-phospho-D-ribosyl)imidazole-4-carboxylate: step 2/2.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in ADSL are the cause of adenylosuccinase deficiency (ADSL deficiency) [MIM:103050]. ADSL deficiency is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by the accumulation in the body fluids of succinylaminoimidazole-carboxamide riboside (SAICA-riboside) and succinyladenosine (S-Ado). Most children display marked psychomotor delay, often accompanied by epilepsy or autistic features, or both, although some patients may be less profoundly retarded. Occasionally, growth retardation and muscular wasting are also present.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the lyase 1 family. Adenylosuccinate lyase subfamily.
