Immunofluorescent analysis of HepG2 cells using a FASN polyclonal antibody (Product # PA5-14352). HepG2 cells were fixed with 4% PFA (20 min), permeabilized with Triton X-100 (0.2%, 30 min). Cells were then incubated with a FASN polyclonal antibody (Product # PA5-14352) (1:200, 2 hr at room temperature). Primary antibody detected by fluor-conjugated donkey anti-rabbit secondary antibody (green) was used (1:1000, 1hr). Nuclei were counterstained with Hoechst 33342 (blue) (10 ug/ml, 5 min).

FASN is a multifunctional protein. Its main function is to catalyze the synthesis of palmitate from acetyl-CoA and malonyl-CoA, in the presence of NADPH, into long-chain saturated fatty acids. In some cancer cell lines, this protein has been found to be fused with estrogen receptor-alpha (ER-alpha), in which the N-terminus of FAS is fused in-frame with the C-terminus of ER-alpha.
