Background informationIncrease in fetal surfactant synthesis and lung maturity is caused by the glucocorticoidal induction of enzymes required for phosphatidylcholine synthesis towards the end of gestation (1). The regulation of gestational age-dependent induction of phosphatidylcholine synthesis by glucocorticoids is still unclear (1). The rate-controlling enzyme in the phosphatidylcholine biosynthetic pathway is CTP-phosphocholine cytidylyltransferase A (CCT A) (2–4). In cultured eukaryotic cells, this enzyme is essential for survival (3). The alpha isoform is located in the nucleus and is regulated by reversible phosphorylation and membrane association (3). There is significant identity between the alpha-helical membrane-binding domains of CCT A and soybean oleosin (2). Expressed CCT A has lipid-dependent cytidylyltransferase activity (5). The gene which encodes CCT A maps to human chromosome 3q (4).

AdvisoryAvoid freeze/thaw cycles as they may denaturate the polypeptide chains of the antibody, thus reducing its reactivity, specificity and sensitivity. For antibodies that are in liquid form or reconstituted lyophilized antibodies small amounts could become entrapped on the seal or the walls of the tube. Prior to use briefly centrifuge the vial to gather all the solution on the bottom.
PropertiesFor facs or microscopy Alexa 1 conjugate.
ConjugationAlexa Fluor,ALEXA FLUOR® 594
ConjugatedAlexa conjugate 1
DescriptionThis antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
GroupPolyclonals and antibodies
AboutPolyclonals can be used for Western blot, immunohistochemistry on frozen slices or parrafin fixed tissues. The advantage is that there are more epitopes available in a polyclonal antiserum to detect the proteins than in monoclonal sera.
