Technical Data
NAPE-PLD (N-acyl Phosphatidylethanolamine Phospholipase D, N-Acylphosphatidylethanolamine-Hydrolyzing Phospholipase D, NAPE-hydrolyzing Phospholipase D, NAPEPLD, C7orf18, FMP30, Mbldc1)
N-Acylphosphatidylethanolamine (NAPE)-hydrolyzing phospholipase D (NAPE-PLD) is a membrane-bound enzyme which releases the endocannabinoid anandamide and other bioactive N-acylethanolamines from their corresponding NAPEs in animal tissues. NAPE-PLD has been shown to be expressed by specific populations of neurons in the brain and targeted to axonal processes. Recent studies have suggested that NAEs generated by NAPE-PLD in axons may act as anterograde synaptic signaling molecules that regulate the activity of postsynaptic neurons. NAPE-PLD has also been shown to catalyze the hydrolysis of NAPE to generate OEA (oleoylethanolamide), a natural lipid amide that inhibits food intake in free-feeding rodents by prolonging latency to feed and postmeal interval.

Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence, Western Blot, Immunohistochemistry and Immunocytochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunofluorescence: 1:1000-1:5000
Western Blot: 1:2500-1:5000
Immunohistochemistry: 1:1000-1:5000
Immunocytochemistry: 1:1000-1:5000
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Positive Controls:
Mouse Brain total protein

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile glycerol (40-50%), aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 3 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.
