The FBP1 Human recombinant protein is a single, non-glycosilated polypeptide chain produced in E. coli, having a molecular weight of 39kDa and containing 358 amino acids (1-338 a.a.). The FBP1 enzyme is fused to a 20 amino acid His-Tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatography techniques.
FBP1 is a gluconeogenesis regulatory protein which catalyzes the hydrolysis of fructose 1,6-bisphosphate to fructose 6-phosphate and inorganic phosphate. FBP1 deficiency is associated with hypoglycemia and metabolic acidosis. FBP1 regulates mouse endogenous glucose production. FBP1 coupled with phosphofructokinase (PFK) takes part in the metabolism of pancreatic islet cells.
