UPD, PCT, EC 188.8.131.52, URO-D, UROD, Uroporphyrinogen Decarboxylase.
UROD is the fifth enzyme in the human heme biosynthetic pathway and is in charge for the transfer of uroporphyrinogen to coproporphyrinogen through the deletion of four carboxymethyl side chains. UROD Mutations and deficiency result in 3 autosomal disorders in humans: familial porphyria cutanea tarda (f-PCT), sporadic porphyria cutanea tarda (s-PCT) and hepatoerythropoietic porphyria (HEP).
UROD Recombinant Human produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 387 amino acids (1-367 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 43 kDa. The UROD is fused to 20 amino acid His-Tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile filtered colorless solution.
UROD Human solution containing 20mM Tris pH-8, 1mM DTT, 0.1M NaCl, 1mM EDTA & 20% glycerol.
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).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
