|Other Names||Estradiol 17-beta-dehydrogenase 8, 17-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase 8, 17-beta-HSD 8, 3-oxoacyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] reductase, 111-, Protein Ke6, Ke-6, Really interesting new gene 2 protein, Testosterone 17-beta-dehydrogenase 8, HSD17B8, FABGL, HKE6, RING2|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence is selected from aa 53-67 of HUMAN HSD17B8|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||FABGL, HKE6, RING2, SDR30C1|
|Function||NAD-dependent 17-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase with highest activity towards estradiol. Has very low activity towards testosterone (PubMed:17978863). The heterotetramer with CBR4 has NADH-dependent 3-ketoacyl-acyl carrier protein reductase activity, and thereby plays a role in mitochondrial fatty acid biosynthesis (PubMed:19571038, PubMed:25203508). Within the heterotetramer, HSD17B8 binds NADH; CBR4 binds NADPD (PubMed:25203508).|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion matrix|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in placenta, liver and pancreas, lower in the skeletal muscle and kidney. Widely expressed.|
