Background: Lipid droplets are coated with a layer of proteins that regulate their growth and metabolism. The major lipid droplet-associated protein in adipocytes is perilipin . Mice in which the endogenous gene for perilipin is knocked out have a lean phenotype due to reduced accumulation of fat [2,3], suggesting that perilipin may have a “gate-keeper” function under basal conditions to protect the triglycerides from metabolism by lipases.
Immunogen: Synthetic peptide corresponding to the region surrounding serine 497 of the human perilipin 1 sequence (not specific to serine 497 phosphorylation)
Specificity/Target: Recognizes full-length perilipin 1 (encoded by the PLIN1a gene)
Species Reactivity: human, mouse (verified)
Tested Applications: Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence (ICC/IF), Western blotting (WB)
Recommended Dilutions ICC/IF 1:300 | WB 1:5000
Storage: 4°C short-term; -20°C long-term
Available volume discounts and contract testing services.
