Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 79 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 79 kDa).
IP 1/10 - 1/100.
IHC-P 1/100 - 1/250. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for Flow Cyt or ICC.
  • Target

    • Function
      Controls the flux of glucose into the hexosamine pathway. Most likely involved in regulating the availability of precursors for N- and O-linked glycosylation of proteins.
    • Tissue specificity
      Isoform 1 is predominantly expressed in skeletal muscle. Not expressed in brain. Seems to be selectively expressed in striated muscle.
    • Pathway
      Nucleotide-sugar biosynthesis; UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine biosynthesis; alpha-D-glucosamine 6-phosphate from D-fructose 6-phosphate: step 1/1.
    • Involvement in disease
      Defects in GFPT1 are the cause of limb-girdle myasthenia with tubular aggregates (LGMTA) [MIM:610542]. A congenital myasthenic syndrome characterized by onset of proximal muscle weakness in the first decade. Individuals with this condition have a recognizable pattern of weakness of shoulder and pelvic girdle muscles, and sparing of ocular or facial muscles. EMG classically shows a decremental response to repeated nerve stimulation, a sign of neuromuscular junction dysfunction. Affected individuals show a favorable response to acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitors.
    • Sequence similarities
      Contains 1 glutamine amidotransferase type-2 domain.
      Contains 2 SIS domains.
