Using anti-PCYT2 polyclonal antibody in muscle health and muscle aging research

March, 2022 (Institute of Molecular Biotechnology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, Austria)

Muscle degeneration (or muscle atrophy) is the wasting or thinning of muscle mass that leads to frailty and dependency in inherited diseases and aging, affecting hundreds of millions of people.

PCYT2 is an enzyme that controls muscle health and muscle aging.


Using our anti-PCYT2 polyclonal antibody (HPA023033), a group of international researchers shows how PCYT2 plays a fundamental, specific, and conserved role in vertebrate muscle health, linking PCYT2 to severe muscle dystrophy, exercise intolerance, and aging.
