Human HPRT shares 98.1% and 96.3% amino acid (aa) sequence identity with mouse and rat HPRT, respectively.
Reconstitute with 0.2 mL of distilled water to yield a concentration of 500 µg/mL.
The protein is a transferase, which catalyzes conversion of hypoxanthine to inosine monophosphate and guanine to guanosine monophosphate via transfer of the 5-phosphoribosyl group from 5-phosphoribosyl 1-pyrophosphate. This enzyme plays a central role in the generation of purine nucleotides through the purine salvage pathway.
