Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab214251 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
This product gave a positive signal in U87-MG cells fixed with 4% formaldehyde (10 min) and 100% methanol (5 min)
FunctionComponent of a lipid metabolic pathway that catalyzes biosynthesis of highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA) from precursor essential polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) linoleic acid (LA) (18:2n-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) (18:3n-3). Catalyzes the desaturation of dihomo-gamma-linoleic acid (DHGLA) (20:3n-6) and eicosatetraenoic acid (20:4n-3) to generate arachidonic acid (AA) (20:4n-6) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)(20:5n-3) respectively.
Tissue specificityExpressed in many tissues, it is most abundant in the liver, brain, adrenal gland and heart. Found as well in skeletal muscle, lung, placenta, kidney, pancreas and retina.
PathwayLipid metabolism; polyunsaturated fatty acid biosynthesis.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the fatty acid desaturase family.
Contains 1 cytochrome b5 heme-binding domain.
Developmental stageHighly expressed in fetal liver and fetal brain.
DomainThe histidine box domains may contain the active site and/or be involved in metal ion binding.
Cellular localizationEndoplasmic reticulum membrane.

Ab214251 staining FADS1 in U87-MG cells. The cells were fixed with 100% methanol (5min) and then incubated in 1%BSA/10% normal goat serum/0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated overnight at +4°C with ab214251 at 1/100 dilution (shown in green) and ab195889, Mouse monoclonal [DM1A] to alpha Tubulin - Microtubule Marker (Alexa Fluor® 594), at 1/250 dilution (shown in red). Nuclear DNA was labelled with DAPI (shown in blue).
Image was taken with a confocal microscope (Leica-Microsystems, TCS SP8).
This product also gave a positive signal under the same testing conditions in U87-MG cells fixed with 100% methanol (5min).
ab214251 has not yet been referenced specifically in any publications.
