Technical Data
A1334-70C3
AKR1A1 (Alcohol Dehydrogenase [NADP+], Aldehyde Reductase, Aldo-keto Reductase Family 1 Member A1, ALDR1, ALR)
Description:
AKR1A1 is a member of the aldo/keto reductase superfamily, which consists of more than 40 known enzymes and proteins. This member, also known as aldehyde reductase, is involved in the reduction of biogenic and xenobiotic aldehydes and is present in virtually every tissue.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:16,000
Western Blot: 0.1-0.3ug/ml, observed in human liver and placenta lysates on ~37kD bands
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin): 2-3ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
