Mouse anti Human AKR1C1 antibody detects the aldo-keto reductase family 1 member C1, also known as 20-alpha-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (20-alpha-HSD), chlordecone reductase homolog HAKRC and high-affinity hepatic bile acid-binding protein (HBAB). Encoded by the AKR1C1 gene, aldo-keto reductase family 1 member C1 is a member of the aldo/keto reductase superfamily, which consists of more than 40 known enzymes and proteins. These enzymes catalyze the conversion of aldehydes and ketones to their corresponding alcohols by utilizing NADH and/or NADPH as cofactors. The enzymes display overlapping but distinct substrate specificity. Aldo-keto reductase family 1 member C1 catalyzes the reaction of progesterone to the inactive form 20-alpha-hydroxy-progesterone. In the liver and intestine, it may have a role in the transport of bile, monitoring the intrahepatic bile acid concentration.

Mouse anti Human AKR1C1 antibody detects a band of 36 kDa. The antibody has been extensively validated for western blotting using whole cell lysates.
