Technical Data
ACSL3 (Long-chain-fatty-acid-CoA Ligase 3, Long-chain Acyl-CoA Synthetase 3, FACL3, ACS3, LACS3)
An initial reaction in fatty acid metabolism in eukaryotic cells is activation of fatty acids catalyzed by acyl-CoA synthetase. FACL3 (fatty acid CoA ligase, long-chain 3) is identified as member of the acyl-CoA synthetase (ACS) family by PCR of rat brain cDNAs using primers based on the conserved region of the ACS protein. The 720aa rat protein preferentially utilizes myristate, laurate, arachidonate, and eicosapentaenoate, and is expressed primarily in brain. The predicted 720aa FACL3 human protein is 92% identical to that of rat.

Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
