Background information

MBOAT4 (membrane-bound O-acyltransferase domain-containing protein 4, Ghrelin O-acyltransferase) is a 435 amino acid, multi-pass membrane protein that belongs to the membrane-bound acyltransferase family. MBOAT4 functions as an enzyme that attaches an octanoate fatty acid to serine-3 of ghrelin. Ghrelin is a very small, appetite-stimulating hormone secreted by the food-deprived stomach. MBOAT4 can use a variety of fatty acids as substrates including octanoic acid, decanoic acid and tetradecanoic acid. MBOAT4 expression, consistent with its function, is mainly in the stomach and intestines. Due to its primary function, MBOAT4 is a candidate for obesity and appetite suppression studies.

Advisory

Avoid freeze/thaw cycles as they may denaturate the polypeptide chains of the antibody, thus reducing its reactivity, specificity and sensitivity. For antibodies that are in liquid form or reconstituted lyophilized antibodies small amounts could become entrapped on the seal or the walls of the tube. Prior to use briefly centrifuge the vial to gather all the solution on the bottom.

Properties

For facs or microscopy Alexa 1 conjugate.

Description

This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.Ghrelin, GHRL gene, obestatin prepropeptide or lenomorelin from ghrelinergic cells in the gastrointestinal tract. GHRL is a neuropeptide in the central nervous system regulating appetite. Ghrelin is regulating the distribution and rate of use of body energy.
