HPGD Recombinant E.coli produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 286 amino acids (1-266a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 31.1 kDa. HPGD is fused to 20 amino acid His-Tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
HPGD is the essential enzyme of prostaglandin degradation. 15-PGDH protein strongly decreases the biologic activity of these molecules by catalyzing the oxidation of the 15-hydroxyl group of prostaglandins to a keto group. GDH1 is involved in numerous physiologic and cellular processes, for instance inflammation.
