The following CAT gene sequences were retrieved from the NCBI Reference Sequence Database (RefSeq). These sequences represent the protein coding region of the CAT gene which is encoded by the open reading frame (ORF) sequence. ORF sequences can be delivered in our standard vector, pcDNA3.1+/C-(K)DYK or the vector of your choice as an expression/transfection-ready ORF clone. Not the clone you want?

Summary: This gene encodes catalase, a key antioxidant enzyme in
the bodies defense against oxidative stress. Catalase is a heme
enzyme that is present in the peroxisome of nearly all aerobic
cells. Catalase converts the reactive oxygen species hydrogen
peroxide to water and oxygen and thereby mitigates the toxic
effects of hydrogen peroxide. Oxidative stress is hypothesized to
play a role in the development of many chronic or late-onset
diseases such as diabetes, asthma, Alzheimer's disease, systemic
lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, and cancers.
Polymorphisms in this gene have been associated with decreases in
catalase activity but, to date, acatalasemia is the only disease
known to be caused by this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009].
