Description

Immunogen

Δ1-pyrroline-5-carboxylate synthetase recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)

General description

Aldehyde dehydrogenase 18 family member A1 (ALDH18A1) is localized to the mitochondrial inner membrane. It is an ATP- and NADPH-dependent bifunctional enzyme. The gene encoding this protein is present on human chromosome 10.

Physical form

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

Application

All Prestige Antibodies Powered by Atlas Antibodies are developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project (www.proteinatlas.org)and as a result, are supported by the most extensive characterization in the industry.

The Human Protein Atlas project can be subdivided into three efforts: Human Tissue Atlas, Cancer Atlas, and Human Cell Atlas. The antibodies that have been generated in support of the Tissue and Cancer Atlas projects have been tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues and through the recent efforts of the Human Cell Atlas project, many have been characterized by immunofluorescence to map the human proteome not only at the tissue level but now at the subcellular level. These images and the collection of this vast data set can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Aldehyde dehydrogenase 18 family member A1 (ALDH18A1) is responsible for the reduction of glutamate to δ1-pyrroline-5-carboxylate which is an important step in the de-novo biosynthesis of proline, arginine and ornithine. It is a bifunctional enzyme having both γ-glutamyl kinase (γ-GK) and γ-glutamyl phosphate reductase (γ-GPR) activities. The enzyme undergoes alternative splicing to give rise to two isoforms. The short isoform is active in the gut and it takes part in arginine biosynthesis. The long isoform is involved in the synthesis of proline from glutamate and is expressed in many tissues.
