Introduction

GALK1 enzyme is needed in the first step of the galactose metabolism pathway.
(ATP + D-galactose = ADP + alpha-D-galactose 1-phosphate). GALK1 deficinecy lead galactosemia II which is an autosomal recessive deficiency known by congenital cataracts during infancy and presenile cataracts in the adult population. The cataracts are secondary to accumulation of galactitol in the lenses.

Description

GALK1 Recombinant Human produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 412 amino acids (1-392 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 44.4 kDa. The GALK1 is fused to a 20 amino acid His-Tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance

Sterile filtered colorless solution.

Formulation

GALK1 Human solution containing 20mM Tris pH-8, & 10% glycerol.
