UGDH Recombinant Human produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 533 amino acids (1-494 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 59.5 kDa. The UGDH is fused to 39 amino acid His-Tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
UGDH is part of the UDP-glucose/GDP-mannose dehydrogenase family and is a widely expressed enzyme localized in the liver. UGDH transfers UDP-glucose to UDP-glucuronate and thus takes part in the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans such as hyaluronan, chondroitin sulfate, and heparan sulfate. These glycosylated products are ordinary molecules of the extracellular matrix and participate in signal transduction, cell migration, and cancer growth and metastasis.
Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks. Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
