Recombinant Human Quinolinate Phosphoribosyltransferase/QPRTase (N-6His)
Recombinant Human QAPRTase is produced by our E.coli expression system and the target gene encoding Met1-His297 is expressed with a 6His tag at the N-terminus. Bon Opus Cat. #C257
BackgroundNicotinate-Nucleotide Pyrophosphorylase (QPRT) belongs to the nadC/modD family. QPRT plays an improtant role in catabolism of quinolinate which acts as a potent endogenous exitotoxin to neurons. In addition, QPRT serves as an an intermediate in the Tryptophan-Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide pathway. QPRT participates in some pathways including Cofactor biosynthesis, NAD(+) biosynthesis and the Nicotinate D-Ribonucleotide from Quinolinate. In addition, QPRT is involved in the catabolism of Quinolinic Acid (QA). The activity toward QA is slightly repressed by phosphoribosylpyrophosphate (PRPP) in both a competitive and a non-competitive manner.
