Alcohol dehydrogenase, ALR, ARM, DD3, ALDR1, MGC1380, MGC12529, AKR1A1, Alcohol dehydrogenase [NADP+], Aldehyde reductase, Aldo-keto reductase family 1 member A1.
AKR1A1 is part of the aldo/keto reductase superfamily, it catalyzes the NADPH-dependent reduction from a range of aromatic and aliphatic aldehydes to their related alcohols. AKR1A1 corresponds (65% identity) to aldose reductase, an enzyme that takes part in the pathogenesis of some diabetic and galactosemic complications. AKR1A1 is involved in the activation of procarcinogens, such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon trans-dihydrodiols, and in the metabolism of various xenobiotics and drugs.
AKR1A1 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 325 amino acids (1-325 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 36.5 kDa.
AKR1A1 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile filtered colorless solution.
AKR1A1 solution containing 20mM Tris pH-8, 50mM NaCl and 10% glycerol.
AKR1A1 Human Recombinant although stable at 4°C for 1 week, should be stored below -18°C.
Please prevent freeze thaw cycles.
