|Detection of Human and Mouse Fatty Acid Synthase/FASN by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line and mouse liver tissue. PVDF Membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse Fatty Acid Synthase/FASN Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5927) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for Fatty Acid Synthase/FASN at approximately 220 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 2.|
FASN (Fatty Acid Synthase; also FAS) is a cytosolic 270-280 kDa member of the short chain dehydrogenase/reductase family 27X. It is expressed in neurons, skeletal muscle, adipocytes and hepatocytes, and both catalyzes the formation of palmitic acid from acetylCoA and malonylCoA, and likely mediates the transfer of fatty acids to peptides. Human FASN is 2511 amino acids (aa) in length ands contains multiple domains, including a beta -ketoacyl synthase domain (aa 1-414), an acyl and malonyl transferase domain (aa 429-817), an enoyl reductase domain (aa 1563-1863), a beta -ketoacyl reductase domain (aa 1864-2118) and a thioesterase domain (aa 2207‑2511). FASN exists as an antiparallel homodimer. There is one theoretical alternative start site at Met2073. Over aa 9-212, human FASN shares 92% aa identity with mouse FASN.
