Inorganic pyrophosphatase, PPA.


Inorganic pyrophosphatase (ppa) is a member of the Ppase family. PPA is an enzyme which catalyzes the conversion of one molecule of pyrophosphate to two phosphate ions. Since this is a highly exergonic reaction, it can therefore be coupled to unfavorable biochemical transformations in order to drive these transformations to completion. The role of the PPA enzyme is a critical one in the lipid metabolism (including lipid synthesis and degradation), calcium absorption and bone formation, DNA synthesis, as well as other biochemical transformations.


PPA Yeast Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 286 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 35kDa.

Inorganic Pyrophosphatase is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.


Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance
