ASS1 Recombinant Human produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 432 amino acids (1-412 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 48.6 kDa. The ASS1 is fused to 20 amino acid His-Tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
ASS1 is involved in the urea cycle, which is a sequence of chemical reactions that is localized in liver cells. The urea cycle processes excess nitrogen that is generated as the body uses proteins. The surplus nitrogen is used to create a molecule called urea, which is excreted from the body in urine.
