The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 60 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
功能Catalyzes the reduction of the delta-24 double bond of sterol intermediates. Protects cells from oxidative stress by reducing caspase 3 activity during apoptosis induced by oxidative stress. Also protects against amyloid-beta peptide-induced apoptosis.
组织特异性Highly expressed in brain and adrenal gland with moderate expression in liver, lung, spleen, prostate and spinal cord. Low expression in heart, uterus and prostate. Undetectable in blood cells. In the brain, strongly expressed in cortical regions, substantia nigra, caudate nucleus, hippocampus, medulla oblongata and pons. In brains affected by Alzheimer disease, expression in the inferior temporal lobe is substantially lower than in the frontal cortex.
通路Steroid biosynthesis; cholesterol biosynthesis.
疾病相关Desmosterolosis (DESMOS) [MIM:602398]: Rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by multiple congenital anomalies and elevated levels of the cholesterol precursor desmosterol in plasma, tissue, and cultured cells. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
序列相似性Belongs to the FAD-binding oxidoreductase/transferase type 4 family. Contains 1 FAD-binding PCMH-type domain.
