PA1-760 detects serotonin N-acetyltransferase (AA-NAT) from rat tissues.
PA1-760 has been successfully used in Western blot procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~23 kDa protein representing unphosphorylated and phosphorylated AA-NAT from rat pineal gland whole protein extract.
PA1-760 immunizing phosphopeptide (Cat. # PEP-064) corresponds to amino-terminal amino acid residues 24-33 of mouse AA-NAT. Total anti-amino-terminal AA-NAT-specific IgG (Cat. # PA1-760) was affinity purified on resin-coupled non-phosphopeptide (Cat. # PEP-063). Phospho-specific amino-terminal IgG (Cat. # PA1-761) was subsequently isolated on resin-coupled phosphopeptide (Cat. # PEP-064). This sequence is completely conserved between mouse, rat, and human AA-NAT protein.
Pineal gland serotonin N-acetyltransferase (arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase, AA-NAT) is an ~23 kDa protein which is the rate-limiting enzyme in melatonin synthesis. Melatonin serves as the hormonal signal of the daily light/dark cycle, or body clock. The nocturnal oscillation in enzyme activity ranges by 10- to 100-fold depending on species among vertebrates. Studies have shown that AA-NAT is regulated by cAMP at both the mRNA and protein levels. AA-NAT has putative protein kinase A (PKA) sites at Thr29 and Ser206. Phosphorylation of AA-NAT at these residues might play a role in protein inactivation via proteasome-dependent degradation.
