BCAT2, CT (BCAT2, BCATM, BCT2, ECA40, Branched-chain-amino-acid aminotransferase, mitochondrial, Placental protein 18)
Description:
This gene encodes a branched chain aminotransferase found in mitochondria. The encoded protein forms a dimer that catalyzes the first step in the production of the branched chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Western Blot, Immunohistochemistry, ELISA

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:1,000
Western Blot: 1:50-100
