15-hydroxyprostaglandin dehydrogenase [NAD(+)] (EC:188.8.131.52), 15-PGDH, Hpgd, Pgdh1, Prostaglandin dehydrogenase 1.
HPGD is the essential enzyme of prostaglandin degradation. 15-PGDH protein strongly decreases the biologic activity of these molecules by catalyzing the oxidation of the 15-hydroxyl group of prostaglandins to a keto group. GDH1 is involved in numerous physiologic and cellular processes, for instance inflammation.
HPGD Mouse Recombinant produced in E. coli is a single polypeptide chain containing 292 amino acids (1-269) and having a molecular mass of 31.6kDa.
HPGD is fused to a 24 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
The HPGD solution (1mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH8.0) and 10% glycerol.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
