Technical Data
A0667-20A
ACOX2 (acyl-Coenzyme A oxidase 2, branched chain, BCOX, BRCACOX, BRCOX, THCCox, Peroxisomal branched chain acyl-CoA oxidase, THCA-CoA oxidase, Trihydroxycoprostanoyl-CoA oxidase)
Description:
The product of this gene belongs to the acyl-CoA oxidases family. It encodes the branched-chain acyl-CoA oxidase which is involved in the degradation of long branched fatty acids and bile acid intermediates in peroxisomes. Deficiency of this enzyme results in the accumulation of branched fatty acids and bile acid intermediates, and may lead to Zellweger syndrome, severe mental retardation and death in children.

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

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:4000
Western Blot: 0.5-1.5ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
