The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 53 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionHydrolyzes specifically phosphatidic acid (PA) to produce 2-acyl lysophosphatidic acid (LPA; a potent bioactive lipid mediator) and fatty acid. Does not hydrolyze other phospholipids, like phosphatidylserine (PS), phosphatidylcholine (PC) and phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) or triacylglycerol (TG).
Tissue specificityExpressed in testis. Expressed exclusively at the connecting piece of the sperm.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in LIPI may be a cause of susceptibility to familial hypertriglyceridemia (FHTR)[MIM:145750]. Familial hypertriglyceridemia is a common inherited disorder in which the concentration of very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) is elevated in the plasma. This leads to increased risk of heart disease, obesity, and pancreatitis.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the AB hydrolase superfamily. Lipase family.
Post-translational modificationsPhosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
Cellular localizationMembrane. May associate with lipid draft and Membrane. Secreted. May associate with lipid draft.
