GCDH Recombinant Human produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 415 amino acids (45-438 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 45.8 kDa. The GCDH is fused to 21 amino acid His-Tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
GCDH is part of the acyl-CoA dehydrogenase family. GCDH is localized in the mitochondrial matrix as a homotetramer of 45-kD subunits. GCDH catalyzes the oxidative decarboxylation of glutaryl-CoA to crotonyl-CoA and CO(2) in the degradative pathway of L-lysine, L-hydroxylysine, and L-tryptophan metabolism. GCDH uses electron transfer flavoprotein as its electron acceptor.
