Product Description

The Acetyl-CoA Carboxylase 1 and 2 Antibody Sampler Kit provides an economical means of distinguishing between the two acetyl-CoA carboxylase isoforms, and between total acetyl-CoA carboxylase and phosphorylated acetyl-CoA carboxylase. The kit includes enough antibody to perform two western blot experiments per primary antibody.

Specificity / Sensitivity

Each antibody recognizes endogenous levels of their target protein. Phospho-Acetyl-CoA Carboxylase (Ser79) (D7D11) Rabbit mAb recognizes endogenous levels of acetyl-CoA carboxylase protein only when phosphorylated at Ser79.

Source / Purification

Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to the sequence of human acetyl-CoA carboxylase 1 protein. Polyclonal antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography. Monoclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic phosphopeptide corresponding to residues surrounding Ser79 of human acetyl-CoA carboxylase protein, or a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Ser523 of human acetyl-CoA carboxylase α1, or Val1416 of human acetyl-CoA carboxylase 2 protein.

Acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACC) catalyzes the carboxylation of acetyl-CoA to malonyl-CoA (1). It is the key enzyme in the biosynthesis and oxidation of fatty acids (1). In rodents, the 265 kDa ACC1 (ACCα) form is primarily expressed in lipogenic tissues, while 280 kDa ACC2 (ACCβ) is the main isoform in oxidative tissues (1,2). However, in humans, ACC2 is the predominant isoform in both lipogenic and oxidative tissues (1,2). Phosphorylation by AMPK at Ser79 or by PKA at Ser1200 inhibits the enzymatic activity of ACC (3). ACC is a potential target of anti-obesity drugs (4,5).
