Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notes
    ELISA: 1/32000.
    WB: Use at a concentration of 0.1 - 0.5 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 28 kDa in Hela and Human Kidney lysates.
    IHC-P: Use at a concentration of 1 - 2 µg/ml. In paraffin embedded Human Kidney, stains membrane / cytoplasm in epithelial cells of renal glomeruli and tubules.

    Not tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • Function

      Catalyzes the NADPH-dependent reduction of several pentoses, tetroses, trioses, alpha-dicarbonyl compounds and L-xylulose. Participates in the uronate cycle of glucose metabolism. May play a role in the water absorption and cellular osmoregulation in the proximal renal tubules by producing xylitol, an osmolyte, thereby preventing osmolytic stress from occurring in the renal tubules.
    • Tissue specificity

      Highly expressed in kidney, liver and epididymis. In the epididymis, it is mainly expressed in the proximal and distal sections of the corpus region. Weakly or not expressed in brain, lung, heart, spleen and testis.
    • Involvement in disease

      Note=The enzyme defect in pentosuria has been shown to involve L-xylulose reductase. Essential pentosuria is an inborn error of metabolism characterized by the excessive urinary excretion of the pentose L-xylulose.
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR) family.
    • Cellular localization

      Membrane. Probably recruited to membranes via an interaction with phosphatidylinositol.
