Detection of Mouse PEDF R/PNPLA2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of mouse adipose tissue. PVDF Membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Rat Anti-Mouse PEDF R/PNPLA2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5365) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF005). A specific band was detected for PEDF R/PNPLA2 at approximately 52 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under non-reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 10.

Background: PEDF R/PNPLA2
PEDF R (Pigment epithelium derived factor receptor; also known as ATGL, PNPLA2, and Desnutrin) is a 55 kDa member of the PNPLA family of proteins. It is expressed in adipocytes, hepatocytes, skeletal muscle, and pigment epithelium. PEDF R specifically hydrolyses triglycerides, releasing long-chain fatty acids. Mouse PEDF R is described as being a 486 amino acid (aa) type II transmembrane (TM) protein. Its TM segment is stated to span aa 9-29. Alternatively, it may have a hydrophobic lipid-association domain between aa 267-295. It contains a palatin domain (aa 10-179) with a conserved GxSxG enzymatic motif. There are multiple splice forms. Two show alternate start sites at Met57 and Met232, while two others show a deletion of aa 163-196 and aa 253-308, respectively. Over aa 162-253, mouse PEDF R shares 98% and 93% aa sequence identity with rat and human PEDF R, respectively.
