Gene Information

human ... ECHS1(1892)

General description

ECHS1 (Enoyl CoA hydratase, short chain, 1, mitochondrial) is structurally located in chromosome 10q26.2-q26.3 region consisting of eight exons, with exons I and VIII with the 5′- and 3′-untranslated regions. It has a GC-rich 5′-flanking region with multiple copies of the SP1 binding motive. Its expressions have been found in the human liver, fibroblasts and muscles.


Enoyl-CoA hydratase, mitochondrial Precursor recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)

Biochem/physiol Actions

ECHS1 (Enoyl CoA hydratase, short chain, 1, mitochondrial) is involved in the mitochondrial β-oxidation of fatty acid by catalyzing the second step of the process i.e. hydration of 2-trans-enoyl-coenzyme A (CoA) to L-3-hydroxyacyl-CoAs. It also participates in different metabolic pathways involving fatty acids and amino acids, valine. Study reports that heterozygous mutation in ECHS1 causes Leigh syndrome with hypotonia, metabolic acidosis, and developmental delay symptoms.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.


Corresponding Antigen APREST75487.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide
