Recombinant human SORD protein, was expressed in E.coli and purified by using conventional chromatography techniques.
SORD, also known as sorbitol dehydrogenase, is a member of the zinc-containing alcohol dehydrogenase family. It is widely expressed with highest expression in kidney and in the lens of the eye. SORD enzymatically catalyzes the zinc-dependent interconversion of polyols, such as sorbitol and xylitol, to their respective ketoses.
Liquid. In 20mM Tris-HCl buffer(pH 8.5) containing 10% glycerol, 1mM DTT
Specific activity is >15 units/mg, and is defined as the amount of enzyme that catalyze the reduction 1.0 umole of D-fructose to D-sorbitol per minute at pH 7.5 at 37C.
