SpecificityAssay by immunoelectrophoresis resulted in a single precipitin arc against purified and partially purified Alanine Transaminase (ALT) [Pig Heart]. Cross reactivity against Alanine Transaminase (ALT) from other
tissues may occur but have not been specifically determined.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Application notesDot: Use at an assay dependent dilution.
ELISA: 1/1000 - 1/5000. This product has been assayed against 1.0 ug of Alanine Transaminase (ALT) [Pig Heart] in a standard sandwich ELISA using Peroxidase conjugated affinity purified anti-Sheep IgG [H&L] (Goat) and ABTS as a substrate for 30 minutes at RT.
IP: Use at an assay dependent dilution.
WB: Use at an assay dependent dilution. Predicted molecular weight: 54 kDa.
Suitable for most immunological methods requiring high titer and specificity.
Not yet tested in other applications.
Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
FunctionCatalyzes the reversible transamination between alanine and 2-oxoglutarate to form pyruvate and glutamate. Participates in cellular nitrogen metabolism and also in liver gluconeogenesis starting with precursors transported from skeletal muscles.
Tissue specificityLiver, kidney, heart, and skeletal muscles. Expressed at moderate levels in the adipose tissue.
PathwayAmino-acid degradation; L-alanine degradation via transaminase pathway; pyruvate from L-alanine: step 1/1.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the class-I pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent aminotransferase family. Alanine aminotransferase subfamily.
