The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 34 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionPhosphorylates psicosamines and ribulosamines, but not fructosamines, on the third carbon of the sugar moiety. Protein-bound psicosamine 3-phosphates and ribulosamine 3-phosphates are unstable and decompose under physiological conditions. Thus phosphorylation leads to deglycation.
Tissue specificityExpressed in erythrocytes.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the fructosamine kinase family.
