Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notesPeptide ELISA: Use at an assay dependent dilution. Antibody detection limit dilution 1/32,000.
    WB: Use at a concentration of 0.5 - 1.5 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 33 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 33 kDa).

    Not yet tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • FunctionConverts monoacylglycerides to free fatty acids and glycerol. Hydrolyzes the endocannabinoid 2-arachidonoylglycerol, and thereby contributes to the regulation of endocannabinoid signaling, nociperception and perception of pain (By similarity). Regulates the levels of fatty acids that serve as signaling molecules and promote cancer cell migration, invasion and tumor growth.
    • Tissue specificityDetected in adipose tissue, lung, liver, kidney, brain and heart.
    • PathwayGlycerolipid metabolism; triacylglycerol degradation.
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the AB hydrolase superfamily. Monoacylglycerol lipase family.

    • Anti-Monoacylglycerol Lipase antibody (ab77398) at 0.5 µg/ml + Human Adipose lysate (in RIPA buffer) at 35 µg

      Predicted band size : 33 kDa
      Observed band size : 33 kDa
    • Immunohistochemical staining of Monoacylglycerol Lipase using ab77398 on Formaldehyde-fixed paraffin-embedded mouse adipose tissue sections (from around the kidney).  Antigen retrieval step: heat mediated in citric acid HIER. Blocking step: 1% BSA for 10 mins @ rt°C. ab77398 incubated at 1/500 for 2 hours. Secondary Antibody:  biotin labelled anti goat IgG used at 1/200. The submitted image shows white fat deposits around the kidney. Dilution factors vary between 1/300-500. There is a pale positivity in the renal tubular cytoplasm which appears to be specific (at lower dilution factor this is more obvious but, in this block the fat was too strongly immunostained). Section was endogenous biotin-blocked prior to incubation with primary Ab.
