Source: active recombinant N-terminal His-tagged protein, expressed in E. coli · Mr: 31.4 kDa · 11-β-Hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (11β-HSD) exists as two isozymes 11β-HSD1 and 11β-HSD2.1 Both isoforms are members of the short-chain dehydrogenase/reductase (SDRs) family.2 11β-HSD1 is a membrane-bound glycoprotein localized on the endoplasmic reticulum. The main catalytic domain of 11β-HSD1 lies within the lumen of the ER. A short five amino acid N-terminal region extends into the cytoplasm and is linked to the catalytic portion through a single transmembrane helix.1 11β-HSD1 is a relatively low affinity NADP-dependent enzyme with a bidirectional catalytic activity. The dehydrogenase reductase activity of 11β-HSD1 catalyzes the conversion of cortisol to cortisone. The primary function of 11β-HSD1 is the oxoreduction of cortisone to the active glucocorticoid cortisol.2 Cortisol is a steroid hormone essential for a variety of physiological and homeostatic functions.

Cayman Chemical was formed over thirty years ago by demonstrating the value of naturally growing gorgonian corals as a renewable, economically viable source of prostaglandins. Today we operate our business knowing that we owe our start to the renewable resources our environment had provided. As Cayman Chemical continues to grow we consistently evaluate our business processes to ensure we are operating at the highest environmental standards.
