Preparation and Storage
May be stored at 4 degree C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot and store at -20 degree C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20 degree C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
Other Notes
Small volumes of anti-PNPLA2 antibody vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.
Related Product Information for
anti-PNPLA2 antibody
Lipolytic enzymes are required for mobilization of fatty acids from triglyceride stores in adipose tissue. Energy homeostasis is affected by dysfunctional lipolysis and may contribute to the pathogenesis of obesity and insulin resistance. Until recently, hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL) was the only enzyme known to hydrolyze triglycerides in mammalian adipose tissue. It is now thought that a second enzyme, adipose triglyceride lipase (ATGL), catalyzes the initial step in triglyceride hydrolysis. ATGL is highly expressed in adipose tissue of mice and humans. It exhibits high substrate specificity for triacylglycerol and is associated with lipid droplets. Inhibition of ATGL markedly decreases total adipose acyl-hydrolase activity. Thus, ATGL and HSL coordinately catabolize stored triglycerides in adipose tissue of mammals.

NCBI Summary for PNPLA2
This gene encodes an enzyme which catalyzes the first step in the hydrolysis of triglycerides in adipose tissue. Mutations in this gene are associated with neutral lipid storage disease with myopathy. [provided by RefSeq]
UniProt Comments for PNPLA2
PNPLA2: the rate-limiting lipolytic enzyme in mammals, flies, and yeast. Catalyzes the initial step in triglyceride hydrolysis in adipocyte and non-adipocyte lipid droplets. Upregulated by exercise training in human skeletal muscle. Has acylglycerol transacylase activity. May act coordinately with HSL within the lipolytic cascade. Regulates adiposome size and may be involved in the degradation of adiposomes. May play an important role in energy homeostasis. May play a role in the response of the organism to starvation, enhancing hydrolysis of triglycerides and providing free fatty acids to other tissues to be oxidized in situations of energy depletion. Interacting with ABHD5 stimulates its triglyceride hydrolase activity. Despite a colocalization in lipid droplets, it probably does not interact with perilipin. Transcriptionally regulated by FOXO1A. Defects cause neutral lipid storage disease (NLSD), an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by the excessive accumulation of neutral lipids in multiple tissues. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
