  • FunctionCatalyzes the hydroxylation of L-kynurenine (L-Kyn) to form 3-hydroxy-L-kynurenine (L-3OHKyn). Required for synthesis of quinolinic acid, a neurotoxic NMDA receptor antagonist and potential endogenous inhibitor of NMDA receptor signaling in axonal targeting, synaptogenesis and apoptosis during brain development. Quinolinic acid may also affect NMDA receptor signaling in pancreatic beta cells, osteoblasts, myocardial cells, and the gastrointestinal tract.
  • Tissue specificityHighest levels in placenta and liver. Detectable in kidney.
  • PathwayCofactor biosynthesis; NAD(+) biosynthesis; quinolinate from L-kynurenine: step 1/3.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the aromatic-ring hydroxylase family. KMO subfamily.
  • Cellular localizationMitochondrion outer membrane.

Thank you for the update. Our datasheet shows a nice clean blot of mouse brain, so it is frustrating that you do not get that result with your brain samples. The placenta result may be real but given the other bands in that blot, I would be skeptical. ...

Thank you for your enquiry.

I have obtained some further information regarding the WB image on the datasheet.

The sample were extracts of mouse brain, each lane represents approximately 20 ug of extract. The mouse brain extract wa...
