EC 184.108.40.206, 6PGD, PGDH, 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase decarboxylating, PGD.
6PGD is the 2nd dehydrogenase in the pentose phosphate shift. Pentose is crucial for the biosynthesis of nucleic acid. The pentose phosphate cycle is a prominent source of NADPH. 6PGD deficiency is mostly asymptomatic, and the inheritance of this deasis is autosomal dominant. PGD deficiency elevate the erythrocyte pyruvate kinase levels of activity & decreases glutathione synthetase, which causes hemolysis.
PGD Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 503 amino acids (1-483) and having a molecular mass of 55.3 kDa.
PGD Human is fused to a 20 amino acid His-Tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
The PGD solution (1mg/ml) contains 10% Glycerol, 1mM DTT, 0.1M NaCl, and 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0).
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Specific activity is > 10unit/mg. One unit will oxidize 1.0 umole of 6-phospho-D-gluconate to D-ribulose 5- phosphate per minute at pH 8.0 at 25˚C, in the presence of beta-NADP.
