Recombinant Saccharomyces Cerevisiae ICDH (NADP) derived from yeast host cells by using over-expression system, is full length same as designated ICD1 from Saccharomyces Cerevisiae. The N-terminal amino acid Phenylalanine residue next to Met is substituted with Alanine for overexpression. The ICDH is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Isocitrate Dehydrogenase is an enzyme of the oxidoreductase class that catalyzes the conversion of isocitrate and NAD+ to yield 2-ketoglutarate, carbon dioxide, and NADH. It occurs in cell mitochondria. The enzyme requires Mg2+, Mn2+; it is activated by ADP, citrate, and Ca2+, and inhibited by NADH, NADPH, and ATP. The reaction is the key rate-limiting step of the citric acid (tricarboxylic) cycle.
