GDH, UDP-GlcDH, UDPGDH, UGD, EC=188.8.131.52, UDP-Glc dehydrogenase, UDP-glucose 6-dehydrogenase, UGDH.
UGDH is part of the UDP-glucose/GDP-mannose dehydrogenase family and is a widely expressed enzyme localized in the liver. UGDH transfers UDP-glucose to UDP-glucuronate and thus takes part in the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans such as hyaluronan, chondroitin sulfate, and heparan sulfate. These glycosylated products are ordinary molecules of the extracellular matrix and participate in signal transduction, cell migration, and cancer growth and metastasis.
UGDH Mouse Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 516 amino acids (1-493a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 57.2kDa. UGDH is fused to a 23 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
UGDH protein solution (0.5mg/ml) containing 20mM MES buffer (pH5.0), 20% glycerol 150mM NaCl and 1mM EDTA.
Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks. Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Greater than 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Specific activity is > 2,500 pmol/min/ug, and is defined as the amount of enzyme that converts 1.0 pmole of UDP-glucose to UDP-glucuronate per minute at pH 8.7 at 37°C.
