|Other Names||Serine palmitoyltransferase 3, 18.104.22.168, Long chain base biosynthesis protein 2b, LCB2b, Long chain base biosynthesis protein 3, LCB 3, Serine-palmitoyl-CoA transferase 3, SPT 3, SPTLC3, C20orf38, SPTLC2L|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence is selected from aa 533-545 of HUMAN SPTLC3|
|Format||Peptides are lyophilized in a solid powder format. Peptides can be reconstituted in solution using the appropriate buffer as needed.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Serine palmitoyltransferase (SPT). The heterodimer formed with LCB1/SPTLC1 constitutes the catalytic core. The composition of the serine palmitoyltransferase (SPT) complex determines the substrate preference. SPT complexes containing SPTLC3 generate shorter chain sphingoid bases compared to complexes containing SPTLC2. The SPTLC1- SPTLC3-SPTSSA isozyme uses C12-CoA, C14-CoA and C16-CoA as substrates, with a slight preference for C14-CoA. On the other hand, the SPTLC1- SPTLC3-SPTSSB has the ability to use a broader range of acyl-CoAs without apparent preference.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in most tissues, except peripheral blood cells and bone marrow, with highest levels in heart, kidney, liver, uterus and skin.|

Serine palmitoyltransferase (SPT). The heterodimer formed with LCB1/SPTLC1 constitutes the catalytic core. The composition of the serine palmitoyltransferase (SPT) complex determines the substrate preference. The SPTLC1-SPTLC3-SPTSSA isozyme uses both C14-CoA and C16-CoA as substrates, while the SPTLC1-SPTLC3-SPTSSB has the ability to use a broader range of acyl-CoAs without apparent preference.
