Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab83763 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P Use a concentration of 10 µg/ml.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 31, 65, 90 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 70 kDa). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.


  • Function
    Acyl-CoA synthetase probably involved in bile acid metabolism. Proposed to activate C27 precurors of bile acids to their CoA thioesters derivatives before side chain cleavage via peroxisomal beta-oxidation occurs. In vitro, activates 3-alpha,7-alpha,12-alpha-trihydroxy-5-beta-cholestanate (THCA), the C27 precursor of cholic acid deriving from the de novo synthesis from cholesterol. Does not utilize C24 bile acids as substrates. In vitro, also activates long- and branched-chain fatty acids and may have additional roles in fatty acid metabolism. May be involved in translocation of long-chain fatty acids (LFCA) across membranes.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in liver, kidney, placenta and pancreas.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the ATP-dependent AMP-binding enzyme family.
  • Cellular localization
    Endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Peroxisome membrane. Peripheral membrane associated with the lumenal side of peroxisomes.
