The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 - 4 µg/ml.
Recommend PFA Fixation and Triton X-100 treatment
1/200 - 1/500. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
1/250 - 1/500.
FunctionCatalyzes the second step of the reductive pyrimidine degradation, the reversible hydrolytic ring opening of dihydropyrimidines. Can catalyzes the ring opening of 5,6-dihydrouracil to N-carbamyl-alanine and of 5,6-dihydrothymine to N-carbamyl-amino isobutyrate.
Tissue specificityLiver and kidney.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in DPYS are the cause of dihydropyrimidinase deficiency (DHPD) [MIM:222748]. DHPD is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by dihydropyrimidinuria and associated with a variable clinical phenotype: epileptic or convulsive attacks, dysmorphic features and severe developmental delay, and congenital microvillous atrophy.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the DHOase family. Hydantoinase/dihydropyrimidinase subfamily.
Post-translational modificationsCarbamylation allows a single lysine to coordinate two zinc ions.
