Specific activity: >0.4 units/mg (please enquire for specific batch value). One unit will form 1.0 umol of S-lactoylglutathione from methylglyoxal and reduced glutathione per minute at pH 7.5, at 25°C. Specific activity was expressed in units/mg of
Quality Control Testing:
Loading 3 ug protein in 15% SDS-PAGE
In 20 mM Tris-HCl, pH 8.0 (1 mM dithiothreitol, 10% glycerol)
Store at 4°C for 1-2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C or -80°C. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
The enzyme encoded by this gene is responsible for the catalysis and formation of S-lactoyl-glutathione from methylglyoxal condensation and reduced glutatione. Glyoxalase I is linked to HLA and is localized to 6p21.3-p21.1, between HLA and the centromere. [provided by RefSeq
