||Recombinant humanAlcohol dehydrogenase was expressed inE.coliand purified by using conventional chromatography techniques. MW =36.5 kDa (325aa).
||Alcohol dehydrogenase [NADP+] (AKR1A1) is a member of the aldo/keto reductase superfamily and catalyzes the NADPH-dependent reduction of a variety of aromatic and aliphatic aldehydes to their corresponding alcohols. This protein is closely related (65% identity) to aldose reductase, an enzyme involved in the pathogenesis of some diabetic and galactosemic complications. It plays a role in the activation of procarcinogens, such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon trans-dihydrodiols, and in the metabolism of various xenobiotics and drugs, including the anthracyclines doxorubicin (DOX) and daunorubicin (DAUN).
