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.
Protein Information
Name KMO
Function Catalyzes the hydroxylation of L-kynurenine (L-Kyn) to form 3-hydroxy-L-kynurenine (L-3OHKyn). Required for synthesis of quinolinic acid, a neurotoxic NMDA receptor antagonist and potential endogenous inhibitor of NMDA receptor signaling in axonal targeting, synaptogenesis and apoptosis during brain development. Quinolinic acid may also affect NMDA receptor signaling in pancreatic beta cells, osteoblasts, myocardial cells, and the gastrointestinal tract.
Cellular Location Mitochondrion outer membrane {ECO:0000255|HAMAP-Rule:MF_03018, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9237672}; Multi-pass membrane protein {ECO:0000255|HAMAP-Rule:MF_03018, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9237672}
Tissue Location Highest levels in placenta and liver. Detectable in kidney.
