Human, Recombinant Fragment Predicted to work with:
Recombinant fragment: MAPDPVAAET AAQGPTPRYF TWDEVAQRSG CEERWLVIDR KVYNISEFTR RHPGGSRVIS HYAGQDATDP FVAFHINKGL VKKYMNSLLI GELSPEQPS, corresponding to amino acids 1-99 of Human FADS1 (NP_037534) with a 26kDa tag.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 - 5 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 52 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 52 kDa).
Use at an assay dependent dilution. Detection limit is approximately 0.03ng/ml as a capture antibody when used against the immunogen.
FunctionComponent of a lipid metabolic pathway that catalyzes biosynthesis of highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA) from precursor essential polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) linoleic acid (LA) (18:2n-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) (18:3n-3). Catalyzes the desaturation of dihomo-gamma-linoleic acid (DHGLA) (20:3n-6) and eicosatetraenoic acid (20:4n-3) to generate arachidonic acid (AA) (20:4n-6) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)(20:5n-3) respectively.
Tissue specificityExpressed in many tissues, it is most abundant in the liver, brain, adrenal gland and heart. Found as well in skeletal muscle, lung, placenta, kidney, pancreas and retina.
