Recombinant Human STAR

Cat.No.: STAR-30115TH
Product Overview: Recombinant full length Human StAR with N terminal proprietary tag, 57.46kDa inclusive of tag. Purified from an in vitro wheat germ expression system.
Description: The protein encoded by this gene plays a key role in the acute regulation of steroid hormone synthesis by enhancing the conversion of cholesterol into pregnenolone. This protein permits the cleavage of cholesterol into pregnenolone by mediating the transport of cholesterol from the outer mitochondrial membrane to the inner mitochondrial membrane. Mutations in this gene are a cause of congenital lipoid adrenal hyperplasia (CLAH), also called lipoid CAH. A pseudogene of this gene is located on chromosome 13.
