|Other Names||Sulfotransferase family cytosolic 2B member 1, ST2B1, Sulfotransferase 2B1, Alcohol sulfotransferase, Hydroxysteroid sulfotransferase 2, SULT2B1, HSST2|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence is selected from the C-terminal region of human SULT2B1a/b.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized 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.|
|Function||Sulfotransferase that utilizes 3'-phospho-5'-adenylyl sulfate (PAPS) as sulfonate donor to catalyze the sulfate conjugation of many hormones, neurotransmitters, drugs and xenobiotic compounds. Sulfonation increases the water solubility of most compounds, and therefore their renal excretion, but it can also result in bioactivation to form active metabolites. Sulfates hydroxysteroids like DHEA. Isoform 1 preferentially sulfonates cholesterol, and isoform 2 avidly sulfonates pregnenolone but not cholesterol.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Microsome. Nucleus. Note=Phosphorylation of Ser-348 is required for translocation to the nucleus|
|Tissue Location||Expressed highly in placenta, prostate and trachea and lower expression in the small intestine and lung|

Cytosolic sulfotransferases (STs or SULTs) catalyze the sulfate conjugation of many drugs, xenobiotic compounds, hormones, and neurotransmitters. Her et al. (1998) identified an EST with homology to ST enzymes. By PCR with human placental and prostate cDNA as template, they isolated 2 alternatively spliced cDNAs, identical throughout most of their sequences, but having different 5-prime ends. The shorter cDNA, SULT2B1a, encodes a protein of 350 amino acids; the longer cDNA, SULT2B1b, encodes a 365-amino acid protein. Genomic PCR analysis revealed that the gene encoding both cDNAs, SULT2B1, contains 7 exons, with 2 alternative first exons being used to generate SULT2B1a and SULT2B1b. Northern blot analysis revealed that the SULT2B1 gene is expressed as a 1.4-kb transcript predominantly in prostate, placenta, and trachea.
