The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1.25 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 55 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 42 kDa). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
Use a concentration of 4 - 8 µg/ml.
Use at an assay dependent concentration.
ELISA titre using peptide based assay: 1/1562500.
FunctionCatalyzes the formation of ganglioside GM3 (alpha-N-acetylneuraminyl-2,3-beta-D-galactosyl-1, 4-beta-D-glucosylceramide).
Tissue specificityUbiquitous. High expression in brain, skeletal muscle, placenta, and testis.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in ST3GAL5 are the cause of Amish infantile epilepsy syndrome (AIES) [MIM:609056]. AIES is an autosomal recessive, infantile-onset symptomatic epilepsy associated with developmental stagnation and blindness.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the glycosyltransferase 29 family.
