Recombinant Human GCH1

Cat.No.: GCH1-28283TH
Product Overview: Recombinant fragment of Human GTP cyclohydrolase 1 with N-terminal proprietary tag.Mol Wt 35.42 kDa inclusive of tag.
Description: This gene encodes a member of the GTP cyclohydrolase family. The encoded protein is the first and rate-limiting enzyme in tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) biosynthesis, catalyzing the conversion of GTP into 7,8-dihydroneopterin triphosphate. BH4 is an essential cofactor required by aromatic amino acid hydroxylases as well as nitric oxide synthases. Mutations in this gene are associated with malignant hyperphenylalaninemia and dopa-responsive dystonia. Several alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described; however, not all variants give rise to a functional enzyme.
