CPT1A (Carnitine O-palmitoyltransferase 1, Liver Isoform, CPT1-L, Carnitine O-palmitoyltransferase I, Liver Isoform, CPT I, CPTI-L, Carnitine Palmitoyltransferase 1A, CPT1)
Description:
The mitochondrial oxidation of long-chain fatty acids is initiated by the sequential action of carnitine palmitoyltransferase I (which is located in the outer membrane and is detergent-labile) and carnitine palmitoyltransferase II (which is located in the inner membrane and is detergent-stable), together with a carnitine-acylcarnitine translocase. CPT I is the key enzyme in the carnitine-dependent transport across the mitochondrial inner membrane and its deficiency results in a decreased rate of fatty acid beta-oxidation.

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

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:128,000
Western Blot: 0.1-0.3ug/ml, human liver lysates on ~80kD bands
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin): 4-6ug/ml
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.
