Recombinant production enables lot-to-lot consistency and is animal-cruelty-free
Western blot analysis of GSTK1 on different lysates. Proteins were transferred to a PVDF membrane and blocked with 5% BSA in PBS for 1 hour at room temperature. The primary antibody (ET7109-58, 1/1,000) was used in 5% BSA at room temperature for 2 hours. Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG - HRP Secondary Antibody (HA1001) at 1:5,000 dilution was used for 1 hour at room temperature.

Glutathione S-transferase kappa 1 (GSTK1) is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the GSTK1 gene which is located on chromosome seven. It belongs to the superfamily of enzymes known as glutathione S-transferase (GST), which are mainly known for cellular detoxification. The GSTK1 gene consists of eight exons and seven introns and although it is a member of the GST family, its structure has been found to be similar to bacterial HCCA (2-hydroxychromene-2-carboxylate) isomerases and bacterial disulphide-bond-forming DsbA oxidoreductase. Research has also suggested that several variations of the GSTK1 gene can be responsible for metabolic diseases and certain types of cancer. The amount of expression of adiponectin has been observed to be related to diseases such as insulin resistance, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. GSTK1 can also be a potential tool to help investigate cancer. Tyrosine phosphorylated proteins are responsible for many of the cell functions such as the cell’s growth, division, adhesion, and motility. These activities are also very related to cancer and thus studying this protein could allow access to information which could classify tumors for prognosis and prediction.
Just like the interactions between antigens and antibodies, the higher the affinity between you and us the better.
