Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab87062 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 48 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.

Target

  • Function
    Catalyzes the biosynthesis of guanidinoacetate, the immediate precursor of creatine. Creatine plays a vital role in energy metabolism in muscle tissues. May play a role in embryonic and central nervous system development. May be involved in the response to heart failure by elevating local creatine synthesis.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in brain, heart, kidney, liver, lung, salivary gland and skeletal muscle tissue, with the highest expression in kidney. Biallelically expressed in placenta and fetal tissues.
  • Pathway
    Amine and polyamine biosynthesis; creatine biosynthesis; creatine from L-arginine and glycine: step 1/2.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in GATM are the cause of arginine:glycine amidinotransferase deficiency (AGAT deficiency) [MIM:612718]. AGAT deficiency is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by developmental delay/regression, mental retardation, severe disturbance of expressive and cognitive speech, and severe depletion of creatine/phosphocreatine in the brain.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the amidinotransferase family.
  • Domain
    One chain folds into a compact single domain composed of repeating units, five beta-beta-alpha-beta modules, which surround the central active site.
  • Cellular localization
    Mitochondrion inner membrane. Cytoplasm. The mitochondrial form is found in the intermembrane space probably attached to the outer side of the inner membrane.

    Secondary
    HRP conjugated anti-Rabbit IgG at 1/50000 dilution

    Predicted band size : 48 kDa
    Observed band size : 44 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 65 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
