    Bifunctional enzyme acting on the peroxisomal beta-oxidation pathway for fatty acids. Catalyzes the formation of 3-ketoacyl-CoA intermediates from both straight-chain and 2-methyl-branched-chain fatty acids.
  • Tissue specificity

    Present in many tissues with highest concentrations in liver, heart, prostate and testis.
  • Pathway

    Lipid metabolism; fatty acid beta-oxidation.
  • Involvement in disease

    D-bifunctional protein deficiency
    Perrault syndrome 1
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR) family.
    Contains 1 MaoC-like domain.
    Contains 1 SCP2 domain.

    Lane 3: HeLa whole cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 4: A431 whole cell lysate (20 µg)

    Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab128565 observed at 85 kDa. Red - loading control, ab181602, observed at 37 kDa.

    ab128565 was shown to specifically react with HSD17B4 in wild-type HAP1 cells along with additional cross-reactive bands. No band was observed when HSD17B4 knockout cells were examined. Wild-type and HSD17B4 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE.  Ab128565 and ab181602 (Rabbit anti GAPDH loading control) were incubated overnight at 4°C at 1 ug/ml and 1/10000 dilution respectively. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preabsorbed ab216773 and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preabsorbed ab216776 secondary antibodies at 1/20000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.

  • Immunofluorescent staining of HSD17B4 in HDFn cells (human) using ab126565.
    The cells were paraformaldehyde fixed (4%, 20 min) and Triton X-100 permeabilized (0.1%, 15min). The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab128565, 1µg/ml) for 2h at room temperature or over night at 4°C. The secondary antibody was (red) Alexa Fluor® 594 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. 10% Goat serum was used as the blocking agent for all blocking steps. The target protein locates to the peroxisome.

  • Immunoprecipitation using ab128565.

    The protein is found both as a full length peptide and in a cleaved version.
