ACAT2 Recombinant Human produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 433 amino acids (1-397 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 45.4 kDa. The ACAT2 is fused to 36 amino acid His-Tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
ACAT2 enzyme participates in lipid metabolism. ACAT2 takes part in lipoprotein assembly, catalyzing cholesterol esterification in mammalian cells. ACAT2 is an integral membrane protein that localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum of human intestinal cells. ACAT2 deficiency contributes to severe mental retardation and hypotonus.
