The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 94 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 94 kDa).
Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
Regulates fatty acid metabolism. Magnesium-dependent phosphatidate phosphatase enzyme which catalyzes the conversion of phosphatidic acid to diacylglycerol during triglyceride, phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine biosynthesis.
Significant expression in intestine and other regions of the gastrointestinal tract.
Belongs to the lipin family.
Contains 1 Asp-Xaa-Asp-Xaa-Thr (DXDXT) motif, a catalytic motif known to be essential for phosphatidate phosphatase activity. Contains one Leu-Xaa-Xaa-Ile-Leu (LXXIL) motif, a motif known to be a transcriptional binding motif.
ICC/IF image of ab70159 stained Hela cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab70159, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899 Dylight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
