Endocannabinoids, such as arachidonoyl ethanolamide (AEA) and 2-Arachidonoyl glycerol (2-AG), function as short-range modulators of cell and synaptic activity. Monoacylglycerol lipase (MAGL) hydrolyzes 2-AG to terminate its biological actions and works consecutively with hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL) to mobilize fatty acids from the triglyceride stores of adipocytes.1,2 MAGL has a molecular weight of ~33 kDa and exhibits a high degree of homology among human, mouse, and rat at the amino acid level.1,2,3,4 The enzyme is expressed in a variety of tissues with most abundant expression in skeletal muscle and adipose tissue, suggesting a role of MAGL in monoglyceride hydrolysis in diverse tissues. Cayman Chemical’s MAGL polyclonal antibody can be used for western blot and immunohistochemical (formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue) analysis for MAGL on samples of human, mouse, rat, and bovine origin. Other applications for use of this antibody have not yet been tested.WARNING This product is not for human or veterinary use.
