      Key Applications
      • ELISA
      • Immunohistochemistry
      Application NotesImmunohistochemistry: 1:2,000-1:4,000 in rat basal forebrain.

      Optimal working dilutions must be determined by the end user.
      Biological Information
      ImmunogenA 22 amino acid synthetic peptide from porcine ChAT, coupled to KLH. The peptide sequence is GLFSSYRLPGHTQDTLVAQKSS. Due to sequence similarity, the antibody is expected to react with pig, mouse primate and human ChAT.
      SpecificityCholine acetyltranferase. The antibody will stain cholinergic neurons in the rat central and peripheral nervous systems.

      Antibody TypePolyclonal Antibody
      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene SummaryCholinergic systems are implicated in numerous neurologic functions. Alteration in some cholinergic neurons may account for the disturbances of Alzheimer disease. The protein encoded by this gene synthesizes the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Alternative splice variants have been found that contain alternative 5' untranslated exons. Three of the four described splice variants encode identical 69 kDa proteins while one variant encodes both the 69 kDa and a larger 82 kDa protein.

      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: SwissProt: P28329 # Catalyzes the reversible synthesis of acetylcholine (ACh) from acetyl CoA and choline at cholinergic synapses.
      SIZE: 748 amino acids; 82568 Da
      DISEASE: SwissProt: P28329 # Defects in CHAT are the cause of familial infantile myasthenia gravis 2 (FIMG2) [MIM:254210, 254200]; also known as CMS-EA. FIMG2 patients have myasthenic symptoms since birth or early infancy, negative tests for anti-AChR antibodies, and abrupt episodic crises with increased weakness, bulbar paralysis, and apnea precipitated by undue exertion, fever, or excitement. Inheritance is autosomal recessive.
      SIMILARITY: SwissProt: P28329 ## Belongs to the carnitine/choline acetyltransferase family.
