Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab157225 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|WB||1/250. Detects a band of approximately 56 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 56 kDa).|
FunctionThis enzyme condenses acetyl-CoA with acetoacetyl-CoA to form HMG-CoA, which is the substrate for HMG-CoA reductase.
Tissue specificityHigh expression in liver and colon. Low expression in testis, heart, skeletal muscle and kidney.
PathwayMetabolic intermediate biosynthesis; (R)-mevalonate biosynthesis; (R)-mevalonate from acetyl-CoA: step 2/3.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in HMGCS2 are the cause of HMG-CoA synthase deficiency (HMGCS deficiency) [MIM:605911]; also known as deficiency of mitochondrial 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA synthase 2. Affected individuals present with severe hypoketotic hypoglycemia, mild hepatomegaly, or fatty liver, and a nondiagnostic pattern of urinary organic acids with increase of medium and short chain dicarboxylic acids.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the HMG-CoA synthase family.

This blot was produced using a 4-12% Bis-tris gel under the MOPS buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 50 minutes before being transferred onto a Nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 minutes. The membrane was then blocked for an hour using 5% Bovine Serum Albumin before being incubated with ab157225 overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using an anti-rabbit antibody conjugated to HRP, and visualised using ECL development solution.
