Control peptide for A0219-90M.

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.

Synthetic peptide corresponding to aa251 from rat ACAT1.

Suitable for use in ELISA and Antibody Blocking. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
