Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified B IH IC
Acyl-Coenzyme A is cholesterol acyltransferase-2 (ACAT-2) which catalyzes the formation of cholesterol esters from cholesterol and long chain fatty acyl-coenzyme A. It is associated with lipoprotein particle secretion and thus plays an important role in the metabolism of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins like ApoB100.1,2,3 In humans, ACAT-2 is primarily expressed in the small intestine, whereas in other mammals, the enzyme is expressed in the liver and the small intestine.4,2 Human ACAT-2 has 522 amino acid with an estimated molecular weight of 60 kD.5 Detects ACAT-2 at about 60 kD in murine liver, intestine, and fibroblasts.6
