Stearoyl-CoA desaturase (SCD) is a regulatory enzyme in lipogenesis. The SCD1 gene is tightly regulated by signals such as insulin, leptin, carbohydrate, fatty acids and temperature. The enzyme (mouse 355 aa, rat 358 aa; ?37,000 Da) is constitutively expressed in adipose tissue and is induced in liver in response to fat-free, high-carbohydrate diet. The SCD-1 expression is higher in female than in male mice. The repression of RNA levels and enzyme activity of hepatic SCD-1 by leptin has been shown to significantly reduce the triglyceride storage, VLDL production and therefore an increase in fatty acid oxidation. Inhibition of SCD-1 may be beneficial for the treatment of obesity, hepatic steatosis and other metabolic disorders. Applications: Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot, Immunoprecipitation and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested. Recommended Dilution: Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher. Storage and Stability: May be stored at 4 degrees C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20 degrees C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
