Nitroreductase from Escherichia coli, Recombinant

Cat No.
NATE-0488
Description
Nitroreductase increases the sensitivity of organisms to nitro-containing drugs such as metronidazole by converting the nitro group to a cytotoxic nitro radical. Shows ability to reduce quinines. Enzyme for activating prodrugs in antibody directed enzyme prodrug therapy.
Abbr
Nitroreductase, Recombinant (E. coli)
Source
E. coli
Species
Escherichia coli
Applications
Nitroreductase has been used in a study that used a set of PCR primers to clone a gene encoding a hypothetical nitroreductases (named as Ssap-NtrB) from uropathogenic staphyl oc occus. It has also been used to improve prodrug activation. Nitroreductase from Escherichia coli has been used in a study to assess anaerobic bacteria as a gene delivery system for cancer treatment. It has also been used in a study to investigate its applications in antibody-directed enzyme prodrug therapy.
