Product information "Anti-FASN / Fatty acid synthase"
0.5mg/ml if reconstituted with 0.2ml sterile DI water. Fatty acid synthase (FAS) is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the FASN gene. The enzyme encoded by this gene is a multifunctional protein. Its main function is to catalyze the synthesis of palmitate from acetyl-CoA and malonyl-CoA, in the presence of NADPH, into long-chain saturated fatty acids. In some cancer cell lines, this protein has been found to be fused with estrogen receptor-alpha (ER-alpha), in which the N-terminus of FAS is fused in-frame with the C-terminus of ER-alpha. Protein function: Fatty acid synthetase catalyzes the formation of long- chain fatty acids from acetyl-CoA, malonyl-CoA and NADPH. This multifunctional protein has 7 catalytic activities and an acyl carrier protein. [The UniProt Consortium]
