  • Function
    Serine palmitoyltransferase (SPT). The heterodimer formed with LCB1/SPTLC1 constitutes the catalytic core. The composition of the serine palmitoyltransferase (SPT) complex determines the substrate preference. The SPTLC1-SPTLC2-SSSPTA complex shows a strong preference for C16-CoA substrate, while the SPTLC1-SPTLC2-SSSPTB complex displays a preference for C18-CoA substrate.
  • Tissue specificity
    Widely expressed.
  • Pathway
    Lipid metabolism; sphingolipid metabolism.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in SPTLC2 are the cause of hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy type 1C (HSAN1C) [MIM:613640]. It is a form of hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy, a genetically and clinically heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by degeneration of dorsal root and autonomic ganglion cells, and by prominent sensory abnormalities with a variable degree of motor and autonomic dysfunction. The neurological phenotype is often complicated by severe infections, osteomyelitis, and amputations. HSAN1C symptoms include loss of touch and vibration in the feet, dysesthesia and severe panmodal sensory loss in the upper and lower limbs, distal lower limb sensory loss with ulceration and osteomyelitis, and distal muscle weakness.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the class-II pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent aminotransferase family.
  • Cellular localization
    Endoplasmic reticulum membrane.

Thank you for contacting us.

Here are the testing discount codes as requested:

Anti-IDH3G antibody (ab118289) Discount code: 42379

Anti-Serine Palmitoyltransferase antibody (ab23696): this antibody has already been shown to work with mouse samples as well as IHC of paraffin embedded tissue sections and would therefore be covered by the Abpromise for your customers experiments.

Anti-SLC25A34 antibody (ab82917) Discount code: 41766. As this antibody has not been used for IHC-P or mouse samples, I would therefore suggest that your customer try performing a western blot (tested application)with the antibodybefore trying the IHC-P.

Anti-CLIC4 antibody (ab77626) Discount code: 40682

Anti-ATPase Inhibitory Factor 1 antibody [5E2D7] (ab110277) Discount code: 40831

Anti-UCP2 antibody (ab77363): this antibody has not been tested in mouse or IHC-P. I would therefore suggest using ab116263 as an alternative. This antibody has been used in IHC-P previously and is predicted to work with mouse samples. If you customer would prefer to try this antibody please let me know and I will generate the relevant discount code.

All of the discount codes presented have an expiration date of the 12th of June 2012. If your customer would like more information on the discount scheme this can be found from the following link:


I hope this information has been of help. I look forward to hearing which antibody your customer would prefer to usefor the UCP2 detection.
