Assay Procedure
  • Assay Buffer: 100 mM Sodium Phosphate, pH 6.0
  • Recombinant Human Aldo‑keto Reductase 1C3/AKR1C3 (rhAKR1C3) (Catalog # 7678-DH)
  • 9,10-Phenanthrenequinone (PQ) (Sigma, Catalog # 156507), 5 mM stock in N,N-Dimethylformamide
  • beta -Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate reduced tetrasodium salt ( beta -NADPH) (Sigma, Catalog # N7505), 10 mM in deionized water
  • UV Plate (Costar, Catalog # 3635)
  • Plate Reader (Model: SpectraMax Plus by Molecular Devices) or equivalent
  1. Dilute rhAKR1C3 to 20 μg/mL in Assay Buffer.
  2. Prepare a Reaction Mixture containing 40 μM PQ and 400 μM beta -NADPH in Assay Buffer.
  3. In a plate, load 50 μL of 20 μg/mL rhAKR1C3, and start the reaction by adding 50 μL of Reaction Mixture.  Include a Substrate Blank containing 50 μL of Assay Buffer and 50 μL of Reaction Mixture.
  4. Read at an absorbance of 340 nm in kinetic mode for 5 minutes.
  5. Calculate specific activity:

     Specific Activity (pmol/min/µg) =

Adjusted Vmax* (OD/min) x -1 x well volume (L) x 1012 pmol/mol
ext. coeff** (M-1cm-1) x path corr.*** (cm) x amount of enzyme (µg)

     *Adjusted for Substrate Blank 
     **Using the extinction coefficient 6270 M-1cm-1 
     ***Using the path correction 0.32 cm
     Note: the output of many spectrophotometers is in mOD Per Well:
  • rhAKR1C3: 1 μg
  • PQ: 20 μM
  • beta -NADPH: 200 μM

Background

AKR1C3 is a member of the aldo-keto reductase (AKR) superfamily. It catalyzes oxidation/reduction reactions at the 3-alpha, 20-alpha, and 17-beta positions of steroids (1). It is also known as Prostaglandin F synthase as it reduces prostaglandin D2 to F2, and therefore may play a role in allergic conditions such as asthma (2). Elevated expression of AKR1C3 in endometrium that results in enhanced estrogen action may lead to endometrial cancer (3). It is also up‑regulated in squamous cell carcinoma of head and neck (4). AKR1C3 is found to be a novel suppressor of cell differentiation that provides a plausible target for the non-cyclooxygenase-dependent antineoplastic actions of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (5).
