Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab169752 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|ICC/IF||1/100 - 1/250.|
|WB||1/10000 - 1/50000. Predicted molecular weight: 26 kDa.|
|IP||1/10 - 1/100.|
FunctionNAD-dependent 17-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase with highest activity towards estradiol. Has very low activity towards testosterone. The heteroteramer with CBR4 has NADH-dependent 3-ketoacyl-acyl carrier protein reductase activity. May play a role in biosynthesis of fatty acids in mitochondria.
Tissue specificityHighly expressed in placenta, liver and pancreas, lower in the skeletal muscle and kidney. Widely expressed.
PathwaySteroid biosynthesis; estrogen biosynthesis.
Lipid metabolism; fatty acid biosynthesis.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR) family.
Cellular localizationMitochondrion matrix.
