ab94163 is a 293T cell transfected lysate in which Human SPHK1 has been transiently over-expressed using a pCMV-SPHK1 plasmid. The lysate is provided in 1X Sample Buffer. Note: For more details about how the transfected lysate was prepared view preparation notes
Function: Catalyzes the phosphorylation of sphingosine to form sphingosine 1-phosphate (SPP), a lipid mediator with both intra-and extracellular functions. Also acts on D-erythro-sphingosine and to a lesser extent sphinganine, but not other lipids, such as D,L-threo-dihydrosphingosine, N,N-dimethylsphingosine, diacylglycerol, ceramide, or phosphatidylinositol.
Tissue specificity: Widely expressed with highest levels in adult liver, kidney, heart and skeletal muscle.
Similarity: Contains 1 DAGKc domain.
