Fast track antibodies constitute a diverse group of products that have been released to accelerate your research, but are not yet fully characterized. They have all been affinity purified and show high titre values against the immunizing peptide (by ELISA).
Use at an assay dependent concentration. Predicted molecular weight: 50 kDa.
Preliminary experiments gave an approx 100kDa band in human liver lysates after 1µg/ml antibody staining. Please note that currently we cannot find an explanation in the literature for the band we observe given the calculated size of 50.1kDa according to NP_005075.3. The 100kDa band was successfully blocked by incubation with the immunizing peptide.
Modulates the action of platelet-activating factor (PAF) by hydrolyzing the sn-2 ester bond to yield the biologically inactive lyso-PAF. Has a specificity for substrates with a short residue at the sn-2 position. It is inactive against long-chain phospholipids.
