Introduction

OTC is a member of the ATCase/OTCase family. OTC has a key part in the urea cycle, catalyzing the second step in this pathway: the transformation of L-orthinine and carbamoyl phosphate to L-citrulline. In humans, the urea cycle is a vital pathway to detoxification of ammonia. Alterations in the gene encoding OTC are linked to the X-linked disorder OTCD (ornithine carbamoyltransferase deficiency). OTCD disorder of the urea cycle is characterized by hyperammonemia.

Description

OTC Recombinant produced in E. coli is a single polypeptide chain containing 347 amino acids (33-354) and having a molecular mass of 38.9kDa.
OTC is fused to a 25 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

E.coli.
