|Detection of Human/Mouse/Rat 11 beta -HSD1 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human, mouse and rat liver tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.5 µg/mL of Human/Mouse/Rat 11 beta -HSD1 Antigen Affinity‑purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3397) followed by HRP‑conjugated Anti‑Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF109). A specific band was detected for 11 beta -HSD1 at approximately 36 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted using Immunoblot Buffer Group 2.|
Hydoxysteroid (11-beta) Dehydrogenase, type I 11-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase 1(11 beta -HSD1, HSD11B1 or HSD1) is a microsomal glycoprotein enzyme, with an apparent mass of 36 kDa, that catalyzes the conversion of the stress hormone cortisol to the inactive metabolite cortisone. 11 beta -HSD1 can also catalyze the reverse reaction, the conversion of cortisone to cortisol. 11 beta -HSD1 has been detected in a wide range of rat and human tissues, including lung and testis, but highest amounts are expressed in the liver. Human 11 beta -HSD1 shares 79 and 77% sequence identity with mouse and rat 11 beta -HSD1, respectively. There are at least 2 isoforms of 11 beta -HSD. The other isoform, type II, is expressed predominantly in the kidney and placenta and catalyzes only the 11-beta-dehydrogenation reaction. High levels of cortisol can lead to visceral obesity and particular defects in the expression or function of 11 beta -HSD1 have also been associated with insulin resistance and cognitive function.
