    This antibody was raised by a genetic immunization technique. Genetic immunization can be used to generate antibodies by directly delivering antigen-coding DNA into the animal, rather than injecting a protein or peptide (Tang et al. PubMed: 1545867; Chambers and Johnston PubMed: 12910245; Barry and Johnston PubMed: 9234514). The animal`s cells produce the protein, which stimulates the animal`s immune system to produce antibodies against that particular protein. A vector coding for a partial fusion protein was used for genetic immunisation of a mouse and the resulting serum was tested in Western blot against an E.coli lysate containing that partial fusion protein. Genetic immunization offers enormous advantages over the traditional protein-based immunization method. DNA is faster, cheaper and easier to produce and can be produced by standard techniques readily amenable to automation. Furthermore, the antibodies generated by genetic immunization are usually of superior quality with regard to specificity, affinity and recognizing the native protein.

WB 1/1000. Predicted molecular weight: 31 kDa.

This antibody has been tested in Western blot against an E.coli lysate containing the partial recombinant fusion protein used as an immunogen. We have no data on detection of endogenous protein.


  • FunctionConverts lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) into phosphatidic acid by incorporating an acyl moiety at the sn-2 position of the glycerol backbone.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed predominantly in heart and liver.
  • PathwayPhospholipid metabolism; CDP-diacylglycerol biosynthesis; CDP-diacylglycerol from sn-glycerol 3-phosphate: step 2/3.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in AGPAT2 are the cause of congenital generalized lipodystrophy type 1 (CGL1) [MIM:608594]; also known as Berardinelli-Seip congenital lipodystrophy type 1 (BSCL1) or Berardinelli-Seip syndrome. CGL1 is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by marked paucity of adipose tissue, extreme insulin resistance, hypertriglyceridemia, hepatic steatosis and early onset of diabetes.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the 1-acyl-sn-glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase family.
  • DomainThe HXXXXD motif is essential for acyltransferase activity and may constitute the binding site for the phosphate moiety of the glycerol-3-phosphate.
  • Cellular localizationMembrane.
