Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab66527 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
- First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions.
- If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer.
- Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent.
- Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised.
- Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

- Acyl coenzyme A cholesterol acyltransferase
- Acyl-coenzyme A:cholesterol acyltransferase
FunctionInvolved in the detoxification of xenobiotics and in the activation of ester and amide prodrugs. Hydrolyzes aromatic and aliphatic esters, but has no catalytic activity toward amides or a fatty acyl-CoA ester. Hydrolyzes the methyl ester group of cocaine to form benzoylecgonine. Catalyzes the transesterification of cocaine to form cocaethylene. Displays fatty acid ethyl ester synthase activity, catalyzing the ethyl esterification of oleic acid to ethyloleate.
Tissue specificityExpressed predominantly in liver with lower levels in heart and lung.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the type-B carboxylesterase/lipase family.
modificationsContains sialic acid.
Cleavage of the signal sequence can occur at 2 positions, either between Trp-17 and Gly-18 or between Gly-18 and His-19.
Cellular localizationEndoplasmic reticulum lumen.
