  • 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.

  • Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence analysis of MCF7 (Human breast adenocarcinoma epithelial cell) cells labeling DGAT1 with Purified ab181180 at 1:100 dilution (4.3 µg/ml). Cells were fixed in 4% Paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with 0.1% tritonX-100. Cells were counterstained with Ab195889 Anti-alpha Tubulin antibody [DM1A] - Microtubule Marker (Alexa Fluor® 594) 1:200 (2.5 µg/ml). Goat anti rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488, ab150077) was used as the secondary antibody at 1:1000 (2 µg/ml) dilution. DAPI nuclear counterstain. PBS instead of the primary antibody was used as the secondary antibody only control.

  • We recommend to use 1%SDS Hot lysis prepare method to get clear Western Blot result.

  • Flow Cytometry analysis of HeLa (Human cervix adenocarcinoma epithelial cell) cells labeling DGAT1 with Purified ab181180 at 1:400 dilution (1 µg/ml) (red). Cells were fixed with 4% Paraformaldehyde. A Goat anti rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488, ab150077) secondary antibody was used at 1:2000. Isotype control - Rabbit monoclonal IgG (Black). Unlabeled control - Cell without incubation with primary antibody and secondary antibody (Blue).
