< 1.0 EU per 1 microgram of protein (determined by LAL method)
Specific activity: approximately > 0.1 units/mg. Enzymatic activity was confirmed by measuring the amount of enzyme catalyzing the oxidation of 1 umole NADPH per minute at 25°C. Specific activity was expressed as units/mg protein.
Quality Control Testing:
Loading 3 ug protein in 15% SDS-PAGE
In 20 mM Tris-HCl, pH 8.0 (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.
This gene encodes a member of the aldo/keto reductase superfamily, which consists of more than 40 known enzymes and proteins. These enzymes catalyze the conversion of aldehydes and ketones to their corresponding alcohols by utilizing NADH and/or NADPH as cofactors. The enzymes display overlapping but distinct substrate specificity. This enzyme catalyzes the reduction of prostaglandin (PG) D2, PGH2 and phenanthrenequinone (PQ), and the oxidation of 9alpha,11beta-PGF2 to PGD2. It may play an important role in the pathogenesis of allergic diseases such as asthma, and may also have a role in controlling cell growth and/or differentiation. This gene shares high sequence identity with three other gene members and is clustered with those three genes at chromosome 10p15-p14. [provided by RefSeq
