|Application ||WB, IF, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||59591 Da|
|Antigen Region||65-90 aa|
|Other Names||UDP-glucuronosyltransferase 1-1, UDPGT 1-1, UGT1*1, UGT1-01, UGT11, Bilirubin-specific UDPGT isozyme 1, hUG-BR1, UDP-glucuronosyltransferase 1-A, UGT-1A, UGT1A, UDP-glucuronosyltransferase 1A1, UGT1A1, GNT1, UGT1|
|Target/Specificity||This UGT1A1 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 65-90 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human UGT1A1.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||UGT1A1 Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||UDPGT is of major importance in the conjugation and subsequent elimination of potentially toxic xenobiotics and endogenous compounds. This isoform glucuronidates bilirubin IX- alpha to form both the IX-alpha-C8 and IX-alpha-C12 monoconjugates and diconjugate. Is also able to catalyze the glucuronidation of 17beta-estradiol, 17alpha-ethinylestradiol, 1-hydroxypyrene, 4- methylumbelliferone, 1-naphthol, paranitrophenol, scopoletin, and umbelliferone. Isoform 2 lacks transferase activity but acts as a negative regulator of isoform 1.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 1: Microsome. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Isoform 1 and isoform 2 are expressed in liver, colon and small intestine. Isoform 2 but not isoform 1 is expressed in kidney. Isoform 1 and isoform 2 are not expressed in esophagus. Not expressed in skin.|

This gene encodes a UDP-glucuronosyltransferase, an enzyme of the glucuronidation pathway that transforms small lipophilic molecules, such as steroids, bilirubin, hormones, and drugs, into water-soluble, excretable metabolites. This gene is part of a complex locus that encodes several UDP-glucuronosyltransferases. The locus includes thirteen unique alternate first exons followed by four common exons. Four of the alternate first exons are considered pseudogenes. Each of the remaining nine 5' exons may be spliced to the four common exons, resulting in nine proteins with different N-termini and identical C-termini. Each first exon encodes the substrate binding site, and is regulated by its own promoter. The preferred substrate of this enzyme is bilirubin, although it also has moderate activity with simple phenols, flavones, and C18 steroids. Mutations in this gene result in Crigler-Najjar syndromes types I and II and in Gilbert syndrome.
