Catalogue number: HYD001
The polyclonal antibody is well suited for the detection of 25(Hydroxy)Vitamin D3-1-alpha-Hydroxylase in tissues and tissue extracts e.g. in HKC-8 cell line from human proximal tubules (1). The seco-steroid hormone 1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D3 plays a vital role in Calcium metabolism, in tissue differentiation and during the growth of bone. The biosynthesis of the hormone is catalysed by a mitochondrial P450-enzyme, 25-Hydroxy-Vitamin D3 1-alpha-Hydroxylase. Although the enzyme has been detected in different tissues, the main site of Vitamin D3 synthesis is the kidney. 25(OH)Vitamin D3-1-alpha-Hydroxylase, 56 kDa Protein in Western Blot.
