|BIRC5, API4, IAP4|
|A DNA sequence encoding the human BIRC5 (NP_001159.2) (Met1-Asp142) was expressed and purified with two additional amino acids (Gly & Pro) 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.
|> 95 % as determined by SDS-PAGE|
|Please contact us for more information.|
|Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃|
|The recombinant human BIRC5 consists of 144 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 16.5 KDa. It migrates as an approximately 19 KDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.|
|Lyophilized from sterile PBS, 20% glycerol, pH 7.4.|
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose and mannitol are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
|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.|
BIRC5, also known as Survivin and EPR-1, is a member of the IAP family. IAP family members usually contain multiple baculovirus IAP repeat (BIR) domains, but BIRC5 has only a single BIR domain. It is expressed cell cycle-dependently and highly expressed at mitosis. As a multitasking protein, BIRC5 has dual roles in promoting cell proliferation and preventing apoptosis. Survivin is a component of a chromosome passage protein complex (CPC) which is essential for chromosome alignment and segregation during mitosis and cytokinesis. Survivin acts as an important regulator of the localization of this complex. It may counteract a default induction of apoptosis in G2/M phase.
