ZooMAb antibodies represent an entirely new generation of recombinant monoclonal antibodies.

Each ZooMAb antibody is manufactured using our proprietary recombinant expression system, purified to homogeneity, and precisely dispensed to produce robust and highly reproducible lot-to-lot consistency. Only top-performing clones are released for use by researchers. Each antibody is validated for high specificity and affinity across multiple applications, including its most commonly used application. ZooMAb antibodies are reliably available and ready to ship when you need them.

Descripción de destino

Choline O-acetyltransferase (UniProt: P28329; also known as EC:, CHOACTase, ChAT, Choline acetylase) is encoded by the CHAT gene (Gene ID: 1103) in human. Choline acetyltransferase a single-strand globular protein that catalyzes the biosynthesis of acetylcholine from acetyl CoA and choline. It is one of the most specific indicator for monitoring the functional state of cholinergic neurons in the central and peripheral nervous systems. It is synthesized in the perikaryon of cholinergic neurons and transported to the nerve terminals. Mutations in CHAT gene are known to cause Myasthenic syndrome that is characterized by failure of neuromuscular transmission, which include pre-synaptic, synaptic, and post-synaptic disorders. Three isoforms of Choline acetyltransferase have been described that are produced by alternative splicing. This ZooMAb recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals. (Ref.: Oda, Y et al., (1999). Pathol. Int. 49(11); 921-937).
