Long-chain acyl coenzyme A synthetase 1 (ACSL1) catalyzes the synthesis of acyl-CoA from long-chain fatty acids in an ATP-dependent manner. ACSL1 is a member of a family of long-chain acyl-CoA synthetases which differ in substrate preference, tissue expression, and subcellular localization. In mouse, ASCL1 is the major acyl-CoA enzyme in the heart, providing 60-90% of heart ATP. Loss of ASCL1 either globally or in heart ventricles resulted in impaired fatty acid oxidation, activation of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), and cardiac hypertrophy.
|Host Subclass||Rabbit IgG|
|Immunogen||Rabbit polyclonal ACSL1 antibody was raised against an 18 amino acid peptide near the center of human ACSL1.|
|Reactive Species||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Formulation||Antibody is supplied in PBS containing 0.02% sodium azide.|
|Reconstitution||During shipment, small volumes of antibody will occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial. For products with volumes of 200 μl or less, we recommend gently tapping the vial on a hard surface or briefly centrifuging the vial in a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container’s cap.|
|Stability & Storage||Antibody can be stored at 4°C for three months and at -20°C for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
