AKR1C1 transfers progesterone to its inactive state or in other words catalyzes the reaction of 20-alpha-hydroxy progesterone (20-alpha-OHP). In the liver and intestine. AKR1C1 transfers bile and monitors the intrahepatic bile acid concentration though it has a low bile-binding ability. AKR1C1 participates in myelin formation. AKR1C1 is part of the aldo/keto reductase superfamily, which has over 40 known enzymes which catalyze the conversion of aldehydes and ketones to their corresponding alcohols by utilizing NADH and/or NADPH as cofactors thus display overlapping but distinct substrate specificity.
AKR1C1 Human Recombinant fused to a 20 amino acid His Tag at N-terminus produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 343 amino acids (1-323 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 38.9 kDa. The AKR1C1 is fused to a 20 a.a. His Tag at n-terminal and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered clear colorless solution.
The AKR1C1 protein solution (0.5mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl pH-8, 1mM DTT and 20% glycerol.
Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks. Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
