  • Function
    Activation of long-chain fatty acids for both synthesis of cellular lipids, and degradation via beta-oxidation. Preferentially uses arachidonate and eicosapentaenoate as substrates.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in ACSL4 are the cause of mental retardation X-linked type 63 (MRX63) [MIM:300387]. Mental retardation is a mental disorder characterized by significantly sub-average general intellectual functioning associated with impairments in adaptative behavior and manifested during the developmental period. Non-syndromic mental retardation patients do not manifest other clinical signs.
    Defects in ACSL4 are involved in Alport syndrome with mental retardation midface hypoplasia and elliptocytosis (ATS-MR) [MIM:300194]. A X-linked contiguous gene deletion syndrome characterized by glomerulonephritis, deafness, mental retardation, midface hypoplasia and elliptocytosis.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the ATP-dependent AMP-binding enzyme family.
  • Cellular localization
    Mitochondrion outer membrane. Peroxisome membrane. Microsome membrane. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane.

Anti-FACL4 antibody images

  • ICC/IF image of ab38420 stained HepG2 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 ab38420 at 10µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (pseudo-colored green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti- rabbit (ab150081) IgG (H+L) preadsorbed, used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (pseudo-colored red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h at room temperature. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (pseudo-colored blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM for 1hour at room temperature.

  • Anti-FACL4 antibody (ab38420) + RKO cell lysate (human colon cancer) treated with 10% FCS for 24hrs

    Predicted band size : 79 kDa
    Observed band size : 75 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)

  • Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded human hepatocarcinoma tissue reacted with the primary antibody, which was peroxidase-conjugated to the secondary antibody, followed by AEC staining. This data demonstrates the use of this antibody for immunohistochemistry; clinical relevance has not been evaluated.
