|Formulation||100 µl of antibody in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||AKR1A1 Antibody (CT) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Catalyzes the NADPH-dependent reduction of a variety of aromatic and aliphatic aldehydes to their corresponding alcohols. Catalyzes the reduction of mevaldate to mevalonic acid and of glyceraldehyde to glycerol. Has broad substrate specificity. In vitro substrates include succinic semialdehyde, 4- nitrobenzaldehyde, 1,2-naphthoquinone, methylglyoxal, and D- glucuronic acid. 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).|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed. Highly expressed in kidney, salivary gland and liver. Detected in trachea, stomach, brain, lung, prostate, placenta, mammary gland, small intestine and lung|

AKR1A1 (aldo-keto reductase family 1 member A1), also known as ALR (aldehyde reductase), DD3 (dihydrodiol dehydrogenase 3) or ALDR1 (alcohol dehydrogenase), is a widely and abundantly expressed member of the aldo-keto reductase (AKR) family of proteins. Members of the AKR family are soluble NADPH-dependent oxidoreductases. They play important roles in the metabolism of drugs, carcinogens and reactive aldehydes. AKR1A1 exists as a monomer and catalyzes the reduction of xenobiotic and biogenic aldehydes and ketones to their corresponding alcohols. In particular, AKR1A1 efficiently catalyzes medium-chain and aromatic aldehydes. AKR1A1 participates in the biosynthetic pathways of cholesterol and triglyceride and plays a role in the activation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs).
