|Other Names||Delta-1-pyrroline-5-carboxylate synthase, P5CS, Aldehyde dehydrogenase family 18 member A1, Glutamate 5-kinase, GK, Gamma-glutamyl kinase, Gamma-glutamyl phosphate reductase, GPR, Glutamate-5-semialdehyde dehydrogenase, Glutamyl-gamma-semialdehyde dehydrogenase, ALDH18A1, GSAS, P5CS, PYCS|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8938c was selected from the Center region of human ALDH18A1. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI 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.|
|Synonyms||GSAS, P5CS, PYCS|
|Function||Bifunctional enzyme that converts glutamate to glutamate 5-semialdehyde, an intermediate in the biosynthesis of proline, ornithine and arginine.|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion inner membrane.|

ALDH18A1 is a member of the aldehyde dehydrogenase family and encodes a bifunctional ATP- and NADPH-dependent mitochondrial enzyme with both gamma-glutamyl kinase and gamma-glutamyl phosphate reductase activities. The encoded protein catalyzes the reduction of glutamate to delta1-pyrroline-5-carboxylate, a critical step in the de novo biosynthesis of proline, ornithine and arginine.
