  • Function
    Plays a key role in glycolysis.
  • Pathway
    Carbohydrate degradation; glycolysis; pyruvate from D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate: step 5/5.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in PKLR are the cause of pyruvate kinase hyperactivity (PKHYP) [MIM:102900]; also known as high red cell ATP syndrome. This autosomal dominant phenotype is characterized by increase of red blood cell ATP.
    Defects in PKLR are the cause of pyruvate kinase deficiency of red cells (PKRD) [MIM:266200]. A frequent cause of hereditary non-spherocytic hemolytic anemia. Clinically, pyruvate kinase-deficient patients suffer from a highly variable degree of chronic hemolysis, ranging from severe neonatal jaundice and fatal anemia at birth, severe transfusion-dependent chronic hemolysis, moderate hemolysis with exacerbation during infection, to a fully compensated hemolysis without apparent anemia.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the pyruvate kinase family.

  • Anti-PKLR antibody (ab38240) at 1/100 dilution + NIH/3T3 cell lysate

    Predicted band size: 62 kDa
    Observed band size: 62 kDa
    Additional bands at: 30 kDa, 50 kDa, 90 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

  • Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded human breast cancer tissue staineded with ab38240 at a 1/50 dilution, using a peroxidase-conjugated secondary antibody, followed by AEC staining.

    This data demonstrates the suitability of this antibody for immunohistochemistry; clinical relevance has not been evaluated.
