|Other Names||Ribose-phosphate pyrophosphokinase 1, PPRibP, Phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate synthase I, PRS-I, PRPS1|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7061a was selected from the N-term region of human PRPS1/2/3. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|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||Catalyzes the synthesis of phosphoribosylpyrophosphate (PRPP) that is essential for nucleotide synthesis.|

Phosphoribosylpyrophosphate synthetase (PRPS; EC 184.108.40.206) catalyzes the phosphoribosylation of ribose 5-phosphate to 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate, which is necessary for the de novo and salvage pathways of purine, pyrimidine, and pyridine biosynthesis. By PCR of human lymphoblast mRNA using primers based on the cDNA sequence of rat PRS I (Prps1), Roessler et al. (1990) isolated a partial human PRPS1 cDNA. They used this partial cDNA to screen lymphoblast cDNA libraries and isolated additional cDNAs corresponding to the entire PRPS1 coding region. The deduced PRPS1 protein has 318 amino acids.
