RDH12 Human Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 303 amino acids (39-316) and having a molecular mass of 33.5kDa.RDH12 is fused to a 25 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
RDH12 is a member of the short-chain Dehydrogenases / Reductases (SDR) family. RDH12 is found generally in brain, stomach, eye, skeletal muscle and kidney. RDH12 is a NADPH-dependent retinal reductase whose main activity is toward 9-cis and all-trans-retinol. In addition, RDH12 takes part in the metabolism of short-chain aldehydes but does not display steroid dehydrogenase activity.
