IDH2(R140Q) Assay Kit

Catalog #: 79309
Size: 96 reactions
$520
Background:
Isocitrate dehydrogenases are enzymes that catalyze the oxidative decarboxylation of isocitrate to 2-oxoglutarate. Mutations in isocitrate dehydrogenases 1 and 2 (IDH1 and IDH2) have been reported in a multitude of human cancers. While the wild type IDH2, produces α-ketoglutarate (α-KG) through the reduction of NADP+ to NADPH, the IDH2(R140Q) mutant catalyzes conversion of α-ketoglutarate to 2-hydroxy-glutarate (2-HG) by oxidizing NADPH to NADP+. Genomic studies have identified the IDH2(R140Q) mutation in various cancer types, including as glioma, chondrosarcoma, AML as well as small percentage of prostate, lung and colon cancers.
Description:
