The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 0.1 - 0.3 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 35 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 37 kDa).
Use at an assay dependent dilution.
Use a concentration of 2 - 4 µg/ml.
FunctionCatalyzes the transformation of the potent androgen dihydrotestosterone (DHT) into the less active form, 5-alpha-androstan-3-alpha,17-beta-diol (3-alpha-diol). Also has some 20-alpha-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase activity. The biotransformation of the pesticide chlordecone (kepone) to its corresponding alcohol leads to increased biliary excretion of the pesticide and concomitant reduction of its neurotoxicity since bile is the major excretory route.
Tissue specificityLiver specific.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the aldo/keto reductase family.
Post-translational modificationsThe N-terminus is blocked.
