Technical Data
A0667-20E
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:
ACOX2 belongs to the acyl-CoA oxidases family. It is a branched-chain acyl-CoA oxidase, and is involved in the degradation of long branched fatty acids and bile acid intermediates in peroxisomes. It oxidizes the CoA esters of the bile acid intermediates di- and tri-hydroxycholestanoic acids. Mutations resulting in the deficiency of ACOX2 lead to the accumulation of branched fatty acids and bile acid intermediates.

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, observed in human liver lysates on ~75kD bands
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
