|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||32543 Da|
|Antigen Region||96-124 aa|
|Other Names||Valacyclovir hydrolase, VACVase, Valacyclovirase, 31--, Biphenyl hydrolase-like protein, Biphenyl hydrolase-related protein, Bph-rp, Breast epithelial mucin-associated antigen, MCNAA, BPHL, MCNAA|
|Target/Specificity||This BPHL antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 96-124 amino acids from the Central region of human BPHL.|
|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||BPHL Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Serine hydrolase that catalyzes the hydrolytic activation of amino acid ester prodrugs of nucleoside analogs such as valacyclovir and valganciclovir. Activates valacyclovir to acyclovir. May play a role in detoxification processes. It is a specific alpha-amino acid ester hydrolase that prefers small, hydrophobic, and aromatic side chains and does not have a stringent requirement for the leaving group other than preferring a primary alcohol.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed at high levels in liver and kidney and lower levels in heart, intestine and skeletal muscle|

This gene encodes a member of the serine protease family of hydrolytic enzymes which contain a serine in their active site. The encoded protein may play a role in activation of the antiviral prodrug valacyclovir. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described.
