D-dopachrome decarboxylase (EC:188.8.131.52), D-dopachrome tautomerase, Ddt.
DDT is an enzyme that catayzes the tautomerization of D-dopachrome to give 5,6-dihydroxyindole (DHI). DDT is part of the family of lyases, specifically the carboxy-lyases, which cleave carbon-carbon bonds. DDT shares a homologous amino acid sequence (33% identical) with MIF and has similar tautomerase activity. DDT functions a proinflammatory cytokine.
DDT Mouse Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 141 amino acids (1-118 a.a) and having a molecular mass of 15.5kDa. DDT is fused to a 23 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
DDT protein solution (1mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-Hcl buffer (pH8.0) & 10% glycerol.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
