Formulation: Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of 4mM HCl.Normally 5 % – 8 % trehalose, mannitol and 0.01% Tween80 are added as protectants before lyophilization.Please refer to the specific buffer information in the printed manual.

Reconstitution: Please refer to the printed manual for detailed information.

Background: Lipase family. The gene encoding this protein is expressed mainly in brain, liver and testes,followed by secreting into plasma and cerebral spinal fluid. The esterification of cholesterol is required for cholesterol transport. LCAT is a central enzyme in the extracellular metabolism of plasma lipoproteins. Defects in LCAT are the cause of lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase deficiency (LCATD) and a cause of fish-eye disease (FED).
