The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
This peptide may be used for neutralization and control experiments with the polyclonal antibody that reacts with this product and AA-NAT, catalog ab3506. Using a solution of peptide of equal volume and concentration to the corresponding antibody will yield a large molar excess of peptide (~ 70-fold) for competitive inhibition of antibody-protein binding reactions.

Arylalkylamine N acetyltransferase
機能Controls the night/day rhythm of melatonin production in the pineal gland. Catalyzes the N-acetylation of serotonin into N-acetylserotonin, the penultimate step in the synthesis of melatonin.
組織特異性Highly expressed in pineal gland and at lower levels in the retina. Weak expression in several brain regions and in the pituitary gland.
パスウェイAromatic compound metabolism; melatonin biosynthesis; melatonin from serotonin: step 1/2.
関連疾患Delayed sleep phase syndrome
配列類似性Belongs to the acetyltransferase family. AANAT subfamily. Contains 1 N-acetyltransferase domain.
翻訳後修飾cAMP-dependent phosphorylation on both N-terminal Thr-31 and C-terminal Ser-205 regulates AANAT activity by promoting interaction with 14-3-3 proteins.
