Acyl-CoA-binding protein, ACBP, Diazepam-binding inhibitor, DBI, Endozepine, EP, Dbi.
DBI, also known as Acyl-CoA-binding protein isoform 2, is a diazepam binding inhibitor, which is regulated by hormones. DBI participates in lipid metabolism and in the displacement of beta-carbolines & benzodiazepines, which modulate signal transduction at type A gamma-aminobutyric acid receptors located in brain synapses. Moreover, during adipocyte differentiation the expression of DBI is significantly induced. DBI preforms as an acyl-CoA pool former and regulates LCFA (long-chain fatty acids) metabolism in peripheral tissues.
DBI Mouse Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 110 amino acids (1-87 a.a) and having a molecular mass of 12.4kDa. DBI is fused to a 23 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
DBI protein solution (1mg/ml) contains Phosphate buffer saline (pH7.4).
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
