AKR1B10, also known as Aldo-keto reductase family 1, member B10, AKR1B10 is a monomeric protein that efficiently catalyzes the reduction of aromatic and aliphatic aldehydes and ketones. AKR1B10 is ubiquitously expressed in many human tissues but is highly expressed in small intestine, colon and adrenal gland. This protein is pathogenically involved in diabetic complications and has been reported that AKR1B10 is overexpressed in human tumors, such as liver, breast, and lung cancer, and may play a critical role in the development and progression of cancer.
Recombinant human AKR1B10 protein was expressed in E.coli.
