The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 61 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 61 kDa). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionProbable acetyl-CoA transporter necessary for O-acetylation of gangliosides.
Tissue specificityUbiquitous. Detected in heart, brain, placenta, lung, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas. With strongest signals in pancreas.
Involvement in diseaseSpastic paraplegia autosomal dominant 42 (SPG42) [MIM:612539]: A form of spastic paraplegia, a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a slow, gradual, progressive weakness and spasticity of the lower limbs. Rate of progression and the severity of symptoms are quite variable. Initial symptoms may include difficulty with balance, weakness and stiffness in the legs, muscle spasms, and dragging the toes when walking. In some forms of the disorder, bladder symptoms (such as incontinence) may appear, or the weakness and stiffness may spread to other parts of the body. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. Congenital cataracts, hearing loss, and neurodegeneration (CCHLND) [MIM:614482]: An autosomal recessive disorder characterized by congenital cataracts, severe psychomotor retardation, and hearing loss associated with decreased serum ceruloplasmin and copper. Brain MRI shows cerebral and cerebellar atrophy and hypomyelination. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the SLC33A transporter family.
