Adiponutrin/ADPN in Human Adipocytes. Adiponutrin/ADPN was detected in immersion fixed human adipocytes using 10 µg/mL Sheep Anti-Human Adiponutrin/ADPN Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5208) for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained with the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL010) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

Detection of Human Adiponutrin/ADPN by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human adipose tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human Adiponutrin/ADPN Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5208) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for Adiponutrin/ADPN at approximately 53 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.

Human Adiponutrin (ADPN; also PNPLA3 and patatin-like phospholipase domain-containing protein 3) is a 53 kDa member of the PNPLA family of phospholipase A2 enzymes. It is expressed in white adipocytes. Adiponutrin is elevated in response to insulin and appears to act not as a phospholipase, but a molecule involved in anabolic pathways. ADPN is likely to be a type II transmembrane protein that is 481 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains one patatin domain (aa 10‑179) that is associated with in vitro enzyme activity and a transmembrane segment between aa 42‑62. There appear to be two splice variants. One shows a four aa deletion of aa 59‑62 and a second shows an alternate start site at Met379. Over aa 160‑349, human ADPN shares 61% aa identity with mouse Adiponutrin.
