Ketohexokinase (KHK) Antibody (N-term) Blocking peptide

Synthetic peptide

Product Information
Primary Accession P50053
Clone Names 4011911
Peptide ID 4011911
Additional Information
Gene ID 3795
Other Names Ketohexokinase, Hepatic fructokinase, KHK
Target/Specificity The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7069a was selected from the N-term region of human KHK. 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.
StorageMaintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.
PrecautionsThis product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.

Ketohexokinase (KHK), or fructokinase, catalyzes conversion of fructose to fructose-1-phosphate. Splice variant 1 is the highly active form found in liver, renal cortex, and small intestine, while splice variant 2 is the lower activity form found in most other tissues. KHK, like glucokinase (GCK) and glucokinase regulator (GCKR), is present in both liver and pancreatic islets. The inhibition of GCK by GCKR is blocked by binding of fructose-1-phosphate to GCKR. The chromosomal proximity of the metabolically connected GCKR and KHK genes has a genetic linkage in type 2 diabetes. Fructosuria, or hepatic fructokinase deficiency, is a benign, asymptomatic defect of intermediary metabolism associated with heterozygosity for G50R and A43T mutations in KHK.
