Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab5009 in the following tested applications.

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

  • Applications

    Blocking

  • Form
    Liquid
  • Additional notes

    This peptide may be used for neutralization and control experiments with the polyclonal antibody that reacts with this product and rat perilipin-1, catalog ab3526. Using a solution of peptide of equal volume and concentration to the corresponding antibody will yield a large molar excess of peptide (~ 70-fold) for competitive inhibition of antibody-protein binding reactions.

  • Function
    Modulator of adipocyte lipid metabolism. Coats lipid storage droplets to protect them from breakdown by hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL). Its absence may result in leanness.
  • Tissue specificity
    Adipocytes.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the perilipin family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Major cAMP-dependent protein kinase-substrate in adipocytes, also dephosphorylated by PP1. When phosphorylated, may be maximally sensitive to HSL and when unphosphorylated, may play a role in the inhibition of lipolysis, by acting as a barrier in lipid droplet.
  • Cellular localization
    Lipid droplet. Lipid droplet surface-associated.
  • Information by UniProt
