Recombinant Human L-Xylulose Reductase/DCXR (N-6His)
Recombinant Human L-Xylulose Reductase is produced by our E.coli expression system and the target gene encoding Met1-Cys244 is expressed with a 6His tag at the N-terminus. Bon Opus Cat. #C277
BackgroundL-Xylulose Reductase is an enzyme that belongs to the Short-Chain Dehydrogenases/Reductases (SDR) family. L-Xylulose Reductase is responsible for the metabolism of Xylulose, converting it into Xylitol. L-Xylulose Reductase catalyzes the NADPH-dependent reduction of several Pentoses, Tetroses, Trioses, α-Dicarbonyl compounds and L-Xylulose. L-Xylulose Reductase participates in the Uronate Cycle of Glucose metabolism. It may play a role in the water absorption and cellular osmoregulation in the proximal renal tubules by producing Xylitol, an osmolyte, thereby preventing osmolytic stress from occurring in the renal tubules.
