Technical Data
4-Hydroxybutyrate CoA-transferase, Recombinant, Human (Gamma Hydroxybutyrate CoA Transferase)
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
Clostridium aminobutyricum ferments 4-aminobutyrate to acetate and butyrate. One of the enzymes which catalyses this inter conversion of the intermediates is Gamma Hydroxybutyrate CoA Transferase. The aa sequence of the enzyme shows close relationships to proteins from the genomes of Clostridium difficile and Porphyromonas ginivalis. Characterisation of this enzyme from Clostridium aminobutyricum has shown it to be largely membrane bound, stable in anaerobic conditions.

Recombinant corresponding to aa1-438 from mature human 4-Hydroxybutyrate CoA-transferase, fused to 6x His-tag at N-terminal, expressed in E. coli.
