|GFAT, GFAT1, GFPT1|
|The sequence corresponding to amino acids (Gln 332-Glu 699) of human GFAT (AAA58502.1) was expressed and purified with two 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.
|> 97 % 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 GFAT exists as a homotetramer protein. The GFAT monomer consists of 370 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 41.5 kDa as estimated in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.|
|Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4, 10% glycerol|
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.|
Glutamine:fructose-6-phosphate amidotransferase 1 (GFAT), also known as GFPT1, is a member of the N-terminal nucleophile aminotransferases and the first rate-limiting enzyme for the entry of glucose into the hexosamine biosynthesis pathway (HBP) in mammals. GFAT transfers the amino group from the L-glutamine amide to the D-fructose 6-phosphate, producing glutamic acid and glucosamine 6-phosphate. GFAT exists as a homotetramer in cytoplasm, and is proposed to be most likely involved in regulating the availability of precursors for N- and O-linked glycosylation of proteins. The full length of human GFAT contains 1 glutamine amidotransferase type-2 domain which catalyzes amide nitrogen transfer from glutamine to the appropriate substrate, and 2 SIS (Sugar Isomerase) domains found in many phosphosugar isomerases and phosphosugar binding proteins.Two isoforms of gfat have been identified: GFAT1 is predominantly expressed in skeletal muscle, whereas GFAT2 is expressed mainly in the central nervous system.
