Ornithine Aminotransferase Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 408 amino acids (33-439 a.a.) and having a molecular wieght of 45.2kDa.The Ornithine Aminotransferase is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Ornithine Aminotransferase is a mitochondrial enzyme which is an important factor that converts arginine and ornithine into the major excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters glutamate and GABA. Ornithine Aminotransferase mutations result in a deficiency that cause the autosomal recessive eye disease Gyrate Atrophy.
