The ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) is a widely used application for detecting and quantifying proteins and antigens from various samples. Target-specific ELISA kits are available from a variety of manufacturers and can help streamline your immunodetection experiments.
The ELISA kits listed below target PNPLA3, the symbol for the human gene, patatin like phospholipase domain containing 3. The protein has an enzyme classification of triacylglycerol lipase.
The protein encoded by PNPLA3 has a predicted amino acid length of 481, a mass of 52.9 kDa, and a membrane subcellular localization. There are currently 2 reported isoforms, as well as sites of glycosylation.
Pathologic involvement is reported in Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease 1. PNPLA3 may also be known by the following names: iPLA2epsilon, iPLA2-epsilon, adiponutrin, acylglycerol transacylase, acylglycerol O-acyltransferase, 1-acylglycerol-3-phosphate O-acPyltransferase PNPLA3 , and ADPN. Orthologs of the gene, including human, mouse, rat, and plant are available targets of several ELISA kits.
