Autotaxin, a member of the ENPP (Ectonucleotide pyrophospatase/phosphodiesterase) family of ectoenzymes, was originally identified as a motogen secreted by a melanoma cell line and subsequently reported to promote cell proliferation, cell motility, angiogenesis, and neurite retraction. Autotaxin has lysophospholipase D activity and appears to exert its effects by generation of the lipid mediator lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) from lysophosphatidylcholine and sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) from sphingosylphosphorylcholine (SPC) outside the cell. Autotaxin levels are significantly higher in cancerous tissues than in normal tissues, suggesting that this novel extracellular protein may be involved in tumor progression. 

Two Autotaxin antibodies are available;
KM105: Specifically reacts with a C-terminal fragment of Autotaxin
KM106: Specifically reacts with an N-terminal fragment of Autotaxin
