|Description||The HPRT1 gene provides instructions for making an enzyme called hypoxanthine phosphoribosyltransferase 1. This enzyme allows cells to recycle purines, some of the building blocks of DNA and its chemical cousin RNA.The enzyme hypoxanthine-guanine phosphoribosyltrasferase (E.C.188.8.131.52., HPRT) plays a crucial role in uric acid synthesis and purine metabolism.This enzyme catalyzes the conversion of hypoxanthine and guanine to inosine monophosphate (IMP) and guanosine monophosphate (GMP), respectively, and uses phosphoribosylpyrophosphate (PRPP) as a cosubstrate and as a source of energy . This pathway is also known as the purine salvage pathway because it allows cells to reuse purine compounds to build DNA and RNA.|
|Immunogen||Purified recombinant fragment of HPRT expressed in E. Coli.|
|Formulation||Ascitic fluid containing 0.03% sodium azide.|
|Dilution||WB~~1/500 - 1/2000|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||HPRT Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Converts guanine to guanosine monophosphate, and hypoxanthine to inosine monophosphate. Transfers the 5- phosphoribosyl group from 5-phosphoribosylpyrophosphate onto the purine. Plays a central role in the generation of purine nucleotides through the purine salvage pathway.|
