Technical Data
ADPN (Adiponutrin, Patatin-like Phospholipase Domain containing 3)
PPNPLA3(patatin-like phospholipase domain-containing protein 3), also named as ADPN, C22orf20, alternatively referred to as adiponutrin, encodes a 481-amino acid protein of 54 kD that belongs to the patatin-like phospholipase domain-containing family. Despite the apparent absence of a membrane-spanning domain, PNPLA3 is tightly associated with membranes and it may be targeted specifically to regions of the ER membrane that are destined to become nascent lipid droplets (PMID:22338072). It is a multifunctional enzyme which has both triacylglycerol lipase and acylglycerol O-acyltransferase activities. Genetic variations in PNPLA3 are a cause of susceptibility to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease type 1 (NAFLD1). It has 2 isoforms produced by alternative splicing

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