Adenosine Kinase Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated,polypeptide chain containing 362 amino acids(22-362a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 40.5 kDa. Adenosine Kinase protein is fused to a 21 amino acid His tag at N-terminus and is purified by standard chromatography.
Adenosine Kinase is an abundant enzyme in mammalian tissues which catalyzes the transfer of the gamma-phosphate from ATP to adenosine, thus is as a regulator of concentrations of both extracellular adenosine and intracellular adenine nucleotides. Adenosine has extensive effects on the cardiovascular, nervous, respiratory, and immune systems and inhibitors of the enzyme take a crucial pharmacological part in growing intravascular adenosine concentrations and acting as anti-inflammatory agents.
