AKR1C4 Human Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 343 amino acids (1-323) and having a molecular mass of 39.2 kDa.The AKR1C4 is fused to a 20 amino acid His-Tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
AKR1C4 is a member of the aldo/keto reductase superfamily that has over 40 known enzymes and proteins. AKR1C4 enables the conversion of aldehydes and ketones to their corresponding alcohols by using NADH and/or NADPH as cofactors. AKR1C4 takes part in the bioreduction of chlordecone, a toxic organochlorine pesticide, to chlordecone alcohol in liver.
Aldo-keto reductase family 1 member C4 (chlordecone reductase 3-alpha hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type I dihydrodiol dehydrogenase 4), 3-alpha-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type I, MGC22581, HAKRA, 3 alpha-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase/dihydrodiol dehydrog
AKR1C4 is supplied as a sterile filtered clear solution.
AKR1C4 protein 1mg/ml is supplied in 20mM Tris-HCL, pH-8, 0.1M NaCl, 1mM DTT and 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.
Specific activity: approximately > 0.6 units/mg. Enzymatic activity was confirmed by measuring the amount of enzyme catalyzing the oxidation of 1 micromole NADPH per minute at 25C. Specific activity was expressed as units/mg protein.
