Detection of Human, Mouse, and Rat Acetyl-CoA Carboxylase alpha /ACACA by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line, C2C12 mouse myoblast cell line, and rat liver tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.5 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat Acetyl-CoA Carboxylase a/ACACA Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF6898) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for Acetyl-CoA Carboxylase a/ACACA at approximately 250 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: Acetyl-CoA Carboxylase alpha/ACACA

ACAC-A (Acetyl-CoA carboxylase alpha/1; also ACC-1 and biotin carboxylase) is a 260-265 kDa cytoplasmic, phosphorylated biotinyl-enzyme. It is widely expressed, and found to be concentrated in hepatocytes, adipocytes and lactating mammary epithelium. It is one of two gene products (ACAC-B/beta being the other) that catalyze the formation of malonyl-CoA from acetyl-CoA. The formation of malonyl-CoA by ACAC-A is a rate-limiting step in fatty acid synthesis; malonyl-CoA formed by ACAC-B acts as a regulator of CPT-1 during fatty acidoxidation. Human ACAC-A is 2346 amino acids (aa ) in length. It contains an N-terminal acetylated Met, one ATP-Grasp domain (aa 275-466) with an embedded biotin carboxylation domain (aa 117-618), a biotinyl-binding region (aa 752-818), and a carboxyltransferase domain (aa 1698-2194). There are at least 17 utilized phosphorylation sites, and two acetylated Lys. ACAC-A exists as either a dimer or higher-order oligomer. Multiple splice variants exist. One possesses an alternative start site at Met79, a second utilizes an alternative start site 37 aa upstream of the standard site, and a third (called PIII) shows a 17 aa substitution for aa 1-75. Over aa 1185-1352, human ACAC-A shares 95% aa identity with mouse ACAC-A, and 97% aa identity with both ovine and bovine ACAC-A.
