  • Function
    Catalyzes the hydrolysis of diacylglycerol (DAG) to 2-arachidonoyl-glycerol (2-AG), the most abundant endocannabinoid in tissues. Required for axonal growth during development and for retrograde synaptic signaling at mature synapses.
  • Tissue specificity
    Highly expressed in brain and pancreas.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in DAGLA may be a cause of spinocerebellar ataxia type 20 (SCA20) [MIM:608687]. Spinocerebellar ataxia is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of cerebellar disorders. Patients show progressive incoordination of gait and often poor coordination of hands, speech and eye movements, due to degeneration of the cerebellum with variable involvement of the brainstem and spinal cord. SCA20 is an autosomal dominant, adult-onset form characterized by dysarthria due to spasmodic dysphonia followed by slowly progressive ataxia. Note=A copy number variation consisting of a 260-kb duplication at chromosome 11q12.2-12.3 is responsible for SCA20. The critical gene within the duplicated segment may be DAGLA.

  • ICC/IF image of ab106979 stained SKNSH cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody ab106979 at 5µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was DyLight® 488 goat anti- rabbit (ab96899) IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

  • Anti-DAGLA antibody (ab106979) at 1/100 dilution + Mouse heart tissue lysate at 35 µg

    Predicted band size : 115 kDa
  • Anti-DAGLA antibody (ab106979) at 1/100 dilution + NCI-H292 cell lysate at 35 µg

  • ab106979 staining mouse cerebellum sections by IHC-P. The tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and a heat mediated antigen retrival step was performed with citric acid pH 6. Blocking of the sample was done with 1%BSA for 10 minutes at 21°C, followed by staining with ab106979 at 1/200 in TBS/BSA/azide for 16h at 21°C. A biotinylated goat anti-rabbit polyclonal antibody at 1/200 was used as the secondary antibody.

    DAG L alpha is particularly enriched along the membranes of the secondary dendritic processes of the Purkinje cells, giving a characteristic, striking pattern of positivity.
    The characteristic pattern is seen on the upper image which shows a wt section stained with ab106979 and is not present in the DAG L alpha KO mouse cerebellum section stained with ab106979 (lower left image).
