  • Function
    Catalyzes the terminal and only committed step in triacylglycerol synthesis by using diacylglycerol and fatty acyl CoA as substrates. In contrast to DGAT2 it is not essential for survival. May be involved in VLDL (very low density lipoprotein) assembly.
  • Pathway
    Lipid metabolism; glycerolipid metabolism.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the membrane-bound acyltransferase family. Sterol o-acyltransferase subfamily.
  • Cellular localization
    Endoplasmic reticulum membrane.

Thank you for contacting us.

The sequence homology between human and Drosophila is only 42% and the immunogen sequence homology is also very less for cross reactivity. I am sorry to say this antibody might not be suitable for Drosophila specie...

Thank you for your reply and the sequence.

Unfortunately, after investigation I confirm that none of the 4 anti-DGAT1 antibodies is likely to work in Drosophila. The immunogens used to raise ab59034, ab122924 and ab100982 do not show more than...

Thank you for contacting us.

Unfortunately, the source of the antibody informed us that Drosophila and human DGAT1 sequences are too divergent to recommend ab54037 for the detection of DGAT1 in fly.

We have 3 other references that may...
