|Alternative Name :||G3PD, GAPD, MGC88685, GAPDH, Glyceraldehyde-3-Phosphate Dehydrogenase.|
|Amount :||10 µg|
Sterile filtered colorless solution.
GAPDH is a catalytic enzyme normally known to play a role in glycolysis. GAPDH exists as a tetramer composed of 36-kDa subunits and has a range of intracellular functions. GAPDH catalyzes the reversible reduction of 1,3-bisphosphoglycerate to glyceraldehyde 3-phosphophate in the presence of NADPH. Besides functioning as a glycolytic enzyme in cytoplasm, GAPDH has function in intracellular processes such as membrane fusion, microtubule bundling, phosphotransferase activity, nuclear RNA export, DNA replication and DNA repair. GAPDH catalyzes a vital energy-yielding step in carbohydrate metabolism, the reversible oxidative phosphorylation of glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate in the presence of inorganic phosphate and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD). The enzyme exists as a tetramer of identical chains.
GAPDH Human Recombinant produced in E. coli is a single polypeptide chain containing 335 amino acids (1-335) and having a molecular mass of 36kDa. The GAPDH is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
|Purification :||Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.|
|Content :||The GAPDH protein (1 mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer pH-8, 1mM EDTA, 1mM DTT and 20% glycerol.|
|Storage condition :||Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks. Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.|
