The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 3 - 6 µg/ml. Recommended: Steamed antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6.
Degrades bioactive fatty acid amides like oleamide, the endogenous cannabinoid, anandamide and myristic amide to their corresponding acids, thereby serving to terminate the signaling functions of these molecules. Hydrolyzes polyunsaturated substrate anandamide preferentially as compared to monounsaturated substrates.
Highly expressed in the brain, small intestine, pancreas, skeletal muscle and testis. Also expressed in the kidney, liver, lung, placenta and prostate.
Belongs to the amidase family.
Endomembrane system. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Seems to be attached to intracellular membranes and a portion of the cytoskeletal network.
Cytoplasm staining of FAAH1 in neuronal cell bodies of paraffin embedded Human cortex by Immunohistochemistry, using ab107526 at a concentration of 3.8 µg/ml. Steamed antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 and AP-staining were also used.
