Product Overview:
Source: Recombinant N-terminal GST-tagged protein expressed in E. coli • Mr: 76.5 kDa
HMG-CoA reductase (HMGR) is a highly regulated enzyme found on the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) membrane. It is bound to the ER membrane by a multi-pass 339 amino acid N-terminal transmembrane domain while the carboxy terminal catalytic region projects into the cytosol. HMGR is controlled by feedback regulation from sterols and non-sterol metabolites derived from mevalonate. Binding of cholesterol derived from internalized LDL receptors suppresses HMGR. The enzyme is responsible for catalyzing the rate-limiting step in cholesterol biosynthesis. Mevalonate, which is converted to isopentenyl pyrophosphate, is the building block for cholesterol and non-sterol isoprenoids. The four-electron reduction of HMG-CoA catalyzed by HMGR to form mevalonate is the committed step in the biosynthesis of sterols and isoprenoids. Potent inhibitors of HMGR, collectively called statins, are effective in lowering mortality due to hypercholesterolemia by lowering serum cholesterol levels.

Cayman Chemical's mission is to help make research possible by supplying scientists worldwide with the basic research tools necessary for advancing human and animal health. Our utmost commitment to healthcare researchers is to offer the highest quality products with an affordable pricing policy.

Our scientists are experts in the synthesis, purification, and characterization of biochemicals ranging from small drug-like heterocycles to complex biolipids, fatty acids, and many others. We are also highly skilled in all aspects of assay and antibody development, protein expression, crystallization, and structure determination.

Over the past thirty years, Cayman developed a deep knowledge base in lipid biochemistry, including research involving the arachidonic acid cascade, inositol phosphates, and cannabinoids. This knowledge enabled the production of reagents of exceptional quality for cancer, oxidative injury, epigenetics, neuroscience, inflammation, metabolism, and many additional lines of research.

Our organic and analytical chemists specialize in the rapid development of manufacturing processes and analytical methods to carry out clinical and commercial GMP-API production. Pre-clinical drug discovery efforts are currently underway in the areas of bone restoration and repair, muscular dystrophy, oncology, and inflammation. A separate group of Ph.D.-level scientists are dedicated to offering Hit-to-Lead Discovery and Profiling Services for epigenetic targets. Our knowledgeable chemists can be contracted to perform complete sample analysis for analytes measured by the majority of our assays. We also offer a wide range of analytical services using LC-MS/MS, HPLC, GC, and many other techniques.
