A DNA sequence encoding the mature form of human EIF5 (P55010) (Met1-Asp150) was fused with the GST tag at the N-terminus.
In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature. Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.

HumanEIF-5A/EIF5Protein Usage Guide
Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.
EIF-5A, also known as EIF5, functions in start site selection as a GTPase accelerating protein (GAP) for the eukaryotic translation initiation factor (eIF) 2•GTP•tRNA ternary complex within the ribosome-bound pre-initiation complex. In protein synthesis initiation, eIF2 functions in its GTP-bound state to deliver initiator methionyl-tRNA to the small ribosomal subunit and is necessary for protein synthesis in all cells. EIF-5A stabilizes the binding of GDP to eIF2 and is therefore a bi-functional protein that acts as a GDP dissociation inhibitor (GDI). EIF-5A also interacts with eIF1 and eIF3 and binds the eIF2-GTP/Met-tRNA ternary complex along with the 40S ribosome subunit.
