Technical Data
CPT1A (Cpt1a, carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1A, liver, CPT1, CPT1-L, L-CPT1, C730027G07, carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1A, carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1, liver)
The CPT1A gene provides instructions for making a liver enzyme called carnitine palmitoyl transferase I. This enzyme assists in the transport of certain fats, called long-chain fatty acids, into the energy-producing centers in the cell (mitochondria). This process is necessary for these fats to be broken down for energy. Long-chain fatty acids must be joined to a naturally occurring substance called carnitine for entry into the mitochondria. Carnitine palmitoyl transferase I connects the long-chain fatty acids to carnitine to promote this transport process.

Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:32000
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.
