Lipid droplets (LD) are highly recognized in biomedical research and pathology. These organells are found in nearly all cell types and tissues and the composition of lipidic material varies strongly, depending on their storage or transport function. LDs are linked to several diseases like diabetes, obesity, liposarcoma, atherosclerosis, lipid droplet biogenesis, viral and bacterial infection.   

Perilipins / PAT family proteins

  • 5 subtypes: perilipin 1-5 (PLIN1- PLIN5)
  • located in the membrane of LDs
  • characterization of LD subpopulations and multifunctional properties (lipid transport, lipogenesis and lypolysis)
  • analysis of viral or bacterial infection pathways (targeting LDs)

The anti-Perilipin 1,2,5 sample set provides antibodies directed against Perilipin 1, 2 and 5 to evaluate the presence and status in IHC and WB.
The set contains enough antibody to perform stainings on 6-12 sections per antibody.
