The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 10 µg/ml. Antigen retrieval with HIER and sodium citrate at pH 6.0 is required.
FunctionPossesses both acyltransferase and acetyltransferase activities. Activity is calcium-independent. Mediates the conversion of 1-acyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (LPC) into phosphatidylcholine (PC). Displays a clear preference for saturated fatty acyl-CoAs, and 1-myristoyl or 1-palmitoyl LPC as acyl donors and acceptors, respectively. May synthesize phosphatidylcholine in pulmonary surfactant, thereby playing a pivotal role in respiratory physiology.
PathwayLipid metabolism; phospholipid metabolism.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the 1-acyl-sn-glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase family. Contains 2 EF-hand domains.
DomainThe HXXXXD motif is essential for acyltransferase activity and may constitute the binding site for the phosphate moiety of the glycerol-3-phosphocholine. The di-lysine motif confers endoplasmic reticulum localization for type I membrane proteins.
