Human Recombinant AKR1C1
Aldo-keto reductase family 1, member C 1, 20-alpha-HSD, DD1/DD2, HBAB, DDH, DDH1
Involved in in the detoxification of aldehydes and ketones
Purity by SDS-PAGE
Specific activity is approximately 0.15 – 0.2 units/mg.
Specific activity is approximately 0.15 – 0.2 units/mg. Enzymatic activity was confirmed by measuring the amount of enzyme catalyzing the oxidation of 1 micromole NADPH per minute at 25°C. Specific activity was expressed as units/mg protein.
Physical form description
0.5 mg/ml solution in 20 mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0) containing 1 mM DTT and 20% glycerol.
Aldo-keto reductase family 1 member C1 in humans is encoded by the AKR1C1 gene. AKR1C1 transfers progesterone to its inactive state or in other words catalyzes the reaction of 20-alpha-hydroxy progesterone (20-alpha-OHP) in the liver and intestine. AKR1C1 transfers bile and monitors the intrahepatic bile acid concentration though it has a low bile-binding ability. AKR1C1 participates in myelin formation. AKR1C1 is part of the aldo/keto reductase superfamily, which has over 40 known enzymes which catalyze the conversion of aldehydes and ketones to their corresponding alcohols by utilizing NADH and/or NADPH as cofactors thus display overlapping but distinct substrate specificity.

For Research Use Only! Not to be used in humans
Human proteins, cDNA and human recombinants are used in human reactive ELISA kits and to produce anti-human mono and polyclonal antibodies. Modern humans (Homo sapiens, primarily ssp. Homo sapiens sapiens). Depending on the epitopes used human ELISA kits can be cross reactive to many other species. Mainly analyzed are human serum, plasma, urine, saliva, human cell culture supernatants and biological samples.
