Scientific Data Images for Perilipin Antibody

Western Blot: Perilipin Antibody [NB110-40760] - Total protein from Human breast (lane 1), Human adipose membrane fraction (lane 2) and Human adipose tissue (lane 3) were separated on a 12% gel by SDS-PAGE. Protein was transferred to PVDF membrane, probed with 2 ug/mL anti-perilipin antibody followed by anti-rabbit HRP conjugated secondary antibody and detected with chemiluminescence.
Immunohistochemistry-Paraffin: Perilipin Antibody [NB110-40760] - IHC analysis of formalin fixed paraffin embedded section of liver tissue from mouse with Perilipin antibody at 1:200 dilution. The hepatocytes developed specific staining in the cytoplasm and around the nuclei of some cells, the immunostaining reflected a punctate appearance which is potentially the ER of the cells.
Flow Cytometry: Perilipin Antibody [NB110-40760] - An intracellular stain was performed on U2OS cells with Perilipin Antibody NB110-40760AF488 (blue) and a matched isotype control (orange). Cells were fixed with 4% PFA and then permeabilized with 0.1% saponin. Cells were incubated in an antibody dilution of 5 ug/mL for 30 minutes at room temperature. Both antibodies were conjugated to Alexa Fluor 488.

Background: Perilipin

Perilipin is a member of the perilipin or PAT family which includes perilipin or perilipin 1 (PLIN1), ADRP/perilipin 2, TIP47/perilipin 3, S3-12/perilipin 4, and LSDP5/perilipin 5 (also called OXPAT). PLIN1 is localized on lipid droplet surfaces in adipocytes and steroidogenic cells wherein it plays a key role in basal/stimulated lipid storage as well as breakdown. Under basal conditions, perilipin protects the lipid core from lipases (e.g. hormone-sensitive lipase and adipocyte TAG lipase) and co-activator CGI-58 by sequestering the enzymes from the lipid droplet surfaces. However, upon beta-adrenergic stimulation, PKA phosphorylates PLIN1 and causes the release of CGI-58 so it can bind and stimulate ATGL and also allows/recruits HSL to translocate to the lipid droplet surface. PLIN1 knockout increases basal lipolysis and decreases LD size in adipocytes and causes resistance to diet induced obesity in mice. In humans, lower PLIN1 expression is associated with higher rates of lipolysis and mutation in PLIN1 or its expression in obese human adipose tissue, correlates positively with insulin sensitivity, and have been established as the cause of familial partial lipodystrophy type 4 (FPLD4).
