Sterile filtered colorless solution.
DCXR catalyzes the NADPH-dependent reduction of numerous pentoses, tetroses, trioses, alpha-dicarbonyl molecules and L-xylulose. DCXR takes part in the uronate cycle of glucose metabolism. DCXR participates in the water absorption and cellular osmoregulation in the proximal renal tubules by producing xylitol, an osmolyte, thus preventing osmolytic stress from occurring in the renal tubules.
DCXR Recombinant Human produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 264 amino acids (1-244 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 28 kDa. The DCXR is fused to a 20 amino acids His-Tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Specific activity is > 1,800 pmol/min/ug and is defined as the amount of enzyme that oxidize 1pmole of xylitol to L-xylulose per minute at pH 10.0 at 37C.
