Recombinant mouse Glo1, fused to His-tag at C-terminus, was expressed in insect cell and purified by using conventional chromatography techniques.
Glo1, also known as lactoylglutathione lyase, is a member of the glyoxalase l family. It plays a critical role in the detoxification of 2-oxoaldehydes, such as methylglyoxal. It involved in the regulation of TNF-induced transcriptional activity of NF-kappa-B. It was identified as a protein marker, which is consistently expressed to a higher extent in LAB-M than in HAB-M mice in several brain areas.
Liquid. In Phosphate Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) containing 10% glycerol.
Specific activity is >210 units/mg, and is defined as the amount of enzyme that will form 1.0 µmol of S-lactoylglutathione from methylglyoxal and reduced glutathione per minute at pH 6.5 at 25 centigrade.
