Technical Data
Aldo-Keto Reductase Family 1 Member B10 (AKR1B10, Aldose Reductase-like, Aldose Reductase-related Protein, ALDRLn, ARL 1, ARL-1, hARP, HIS, HSI, MGC14103, Small Intestine Reductase, SI Reductase)
A 316aa protein, AKR1B10 is a highly efficient retinal reductase constituting the first cytosolic NADP (H)-dependent retinal reductase described in humans and is characterized by the presence of a novel NADP binding motif. Due to its ability to convert glucose to sorbitol, AKR1B10 may have a role in development of secondary diabetic complications. It is abundantly expressed in adrenal gland, small intestine and colon, with lower levels in liver, thymus, prostate, testis, and skeletal muscle and its levels are up regulated in certain cancers such as hepatocellular carcinoma.

Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.
