CDO1 Human Recombinant fused with 37 amino acid His tag at N-terminus produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 207 amino acids (1-170 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 23.9kDa.The CDO1 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
CDO1 (Cysteine dioxygenase) is a mammalian non-heme iron enzyme that initiates a number of significant metabolic pathways associated with pyruvate and several sulfurate compounds including sulfate, hypotaurine and taurine. CDO1 catalyzes the conversion of L-cysteine to cysteine sulfinic acid (cysteine sulfinate) by incorporation of dioxygen. CDO1 is a vital regulator of cellular cysteine concentrations and has an essential role in maintaining the hepatic concentration of intracellular free cysteine within a proper narrow range. CDO1 is able to alter intracellular cysteine levels and glutathione levels. CDO1 is highly expressed in the liver and placenta. On the other hand CDO1 has a low expression in heart, brain and pancreas. CDO1 can also be detected in hepatoblastoma HepG2 cells.
Cysteine dioxygenase type 1, Cysteine dioxygenase type I, CDO-I, CDO, CDO1.
Sterile Filtered colorless solution.
The CDO1 solution contains 20mM Tris buffer(pH 8.0), 10% glycerol and 1mM DTT.
CDO1 althoµgh stable 4°C for 4 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
