DDIT4 produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 252 amino acids (1-232.a.a) and having a molecular mass of 27.5kDa. DDIT4 is fused to a 20 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
DDIT4 has a role in the regulation of reactive oxygen species. DDIT4 is upregulated at the transcriptional level as a reaction to stress due to DNA damage and glucocorticoid treatment. DDIT4 negatively regulates the mammalian target of Rapamycin, a serine/threonine kinase frequently referred to as mTOR. DDIT4 is vital in the coupling of extra- and intracellular cues to mTOR regulation.
