Gene Information

human ... PHGDH(26227)

General description

The gene PHGDH (D-3-phosphoglycerate dehydrogenase) is mapped to human chromosome 1p.


D-3-phosphoglycerate dehydrogenase recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)


Anti-PHGDH antibody produced in rabbit, a Prestige Antibody, is developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project ( Each antibody is tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues. These images can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link. The antibodies are also tested using immunofluorescence and western blotting.

Biochem/physiol Actions

PHGDH (D-3-phosphoglycerate dehydrogenase) is mainly responsible for catalyzing initial step of the serine synthesis pathway, converting 3-phosphoglycerate into 3-phosphohydroxypyruvate. It is up-regulated in estrogen receptor-negative breast cancers, melanoma and cervical cancers. Mutations in PHGDH are associated with Neu-Laxova syndrome. Down-regulation in PHGDH levels results in congenital microcephaly, psychomotor retardation and seizures.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.


Corresponding Antigen APREST73826.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide

Although p53 is frequently mutated in human cancers, about 80% of human melanomas retain wild-type p53. Here we report that PHGDH, the key metabolic enzyme that catalyzes the rate-limiting step of the serine biosynthesis pathway, is a target of p53...

The gene encoding the serine biosynthesis pathway enzyme PHGDH is located in a region of focal genomic copy number gain in human cancers. Cells with PHGDH amplification are dependent on enzyme expression for proliferation. However, dependence on increased PHGDH expression...

We aimed to identify novel molecular mechanisms for muscle growth during administration of anabolic agents. Growing pigs (Duroc/(Landrace/Large-White)) were administered Ractopamine (a beta-adrenergic agonist; BA; 20 ppm in feed) or Reporcin (recombinant growth hormone; GH; 10 mg/48 hours injected) and compared to a...
