Technical Data
A0219-90M
ACAT1 (Very Long-chain Specific Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase, Mitochondrial, VLCAD, Vlcad)
Description:
Acetyl-Coenzyme A acetyltransferase 1 (ACAT1) is a mitochondrial enzyme that catalyzes the formation of cholesterol esters from cholesterol and long chain fatty acyl-coenzyme A. ACAT1 may play an important role in the development of atherosclerosis due to cholesterol buildup in macrophage.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 1-4ug/ml
