PECI Recombinant Human produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 384 amino acids (1-364 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 42.3 kDa. The PECI is fused to 20 amino acid His-Tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
PECI is an enzyme that localized to the peroxisomal matrix and encloses one ACB (acyl-CoA-binding) domain. PECI is expressed abundantly in liver, heart and skeletal muscle. PECI functions to catalyze the isomerization of both 3-cis and 3-trans double bonds into the 2-trans form in an array of enoyl-CoA species. PECI takes part in the beta-oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids.
