|Other Names||Galactokinase, Galactose kinase, GALK1, GALK|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7081b was selected from the C-term region of human GALK1. 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||Major enzyme for galactose metabolism.|

Galactokinase is a major enzyme for the metabolism of galactose and its deficiency causes congenital cataracts in the adult population. GALK1 sequence shares the greatest level of conservation, 44.5% identity with that from E. coli and 34.6% amino acid identity with the product of the human GALK2 gene.
