ALOX12 Antibody (C-term) Blocking Peptide

Synthetic peptide

Product Information
Primary Accession P18054
Clone Names 80311177
Additional Information
Gene ID 239
Other Names Arachidonate 12-lipoxygenase, 12S-type, 12S-LOX, 12S-lipoxygenase, Lipoxin synthase 12-LO, 332-, Platelet-type lipoxygenase 12, ALOX12, 12LO, LOG12
Target/Specificity The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8877b was selected from the C-term region of human ALOX12. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.
Format Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.
StorageMaintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.
PrecautionsThis product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
Protein Information
Name ALOX12 (HGNC:429)
Synonyms 12LO, LOG12
Function Catalyzes the regio and stereo-specific incorporation of a single molecule of dioxygen into free and esterified polyunsaturated fatty acids generating lipid hydroperoxides that can be further reduced to the corresponding hydroxy species (PubMed:17493578, PubMed:1851637, PubMed:8319693, PubMed:8500694, PubMed:18311922). Mainly converts arachidonic acid to (12S)-hydroperoxyeicosatetraenoic acid/(12S)-HPETE but can also metabolize linoleic acid (PubMed:8250832, PubMed:17493578, PubMed:22984144, PubMed:24282679, PubMed:8319693, PubMed:8500694). In contrast does not react towards methyl esters of linoleic and arachidonic acids (By similarity). Also catalyzes the epoxidation of double bonds of polyunsaturated fatty acids such as 14S-hydroperoxy- docosahexaenoate (DHA) resulting in the formation of (13S,14S)-epoxy- DHA (PubMed:23504711). Has a dual activity since it also converts leukotriene A4/LTA4 into both the bioactive lipoxin A4/LXA4 and lipoxin B4/LXB4 (PubMed:8250832). Through the production of specific bioactive lipids like (12S)-HPETE it regulates different biological processes including platelet activation (PubMed:8319693, PubMed:8500694). It also probably positively regulates angiogenesis through regulation of the expression of the vascular endothelial growth factor (PubMed:9751607, PubMed:16638750). Plays a role in apoptotic process, promoting the survival of vascular smooth muscle cells for instance (PubMed:23578768). May also play a role in the control of cell migration and proliferation (PubMed:22237009).
Cellular Location Cytoplasm, cytosol. Membrane. Note=Membrane association is stimulated by EGF
Tissue Location Expressed in vascular smooth muscle cells.
