Related Product Information for
anti-GPAM antibody
GPAT1 Antibody: Glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase 1 (GPAT1), one of four known GPAT isoforms, is located on the mitochondrial outer membrane, allowing reciprocal regulation with carnitine palmitoyltransferase-1. It is thought to be critical for the development of hepatic steatosis; steatosis triggered by GPAT1 overexpression leads to hepatic and possibly peripheral insulin resistance. GPAT1 is transcriptionally upregulated by insulin and sterol regulatory element binding protein (SREBP-1) and downregulated by AMP-activated protein kinase. Mice deficient in GPAT1 exhibit decreased triacylglycerol (TAG) in cardiomyocytes even in high-fat diets, suggesting that GPAT1 contributes significantly to TAG accumulation in heart tissue during lipogenic or high fat diets. At least two isoforms of GPAT1 are known to exist.

NCBI Summary for GPAM
This gene encodes a mitochondrial enzyme which prefers saturated fatty acids as its substrate for the synthesis of glycerolipids. This metabolic pathway's first step is catalyzed by the encoded enzyme. Two forms for this enzyme exist, one in the mitochondria and one in the endoplasmic reticulum. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2011]
