General notesab94326 is a 293T cell transfected lysate in which Human Fatty Acid Synthase has been transiently over-expressed using a pCMV-Fatty Acid Synthase plasmid. The lysate is provided in 1 x Sample Buffer. Note: For more details about how the transfected lysate was prepared view preparation notes
BackgroundFunction: Fatty acid synthetase catalyzes the formation of long-chain fatty acids from acetyl-CoA, malonyl-CoA and NADPH. This multifunctional protein has 7 catalytic activities and an acyl carrier protein.
Similarity: Contains 1 acyl carrier domain.
Tissue specificity: Ubiquitous. Prominent expression in brain, lung, and liver.
