|A DNA sequence encoding the human PDE3A (Q14432) (Lys669-Gln1141) was fused with the N-terminal polyhistidine-tagged 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.
|> 90 % as determined by SDS-PAGE|
|< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method|
|Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃|
|The recombinant human PDE3A /GST chimera consists of 710 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 81.7 kDa. The recombinant protein migrates as an approximately 93 kDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.|
|Lyophilized from sterile 20mM Tris, 500mM NaCl, pH 7.4, 10% gly, 3mM DTT|
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.|
PDE3A belongs to the phosphodiesterase family. Phosphodiesterases (PDEs) are a family of related phosphohydrolyases that selectively catalyze the hydrolysis of 3' cyclic phosphate bonds in adenosine and/or guanine 3',5' cyclic monophosphate (cAMP and/or cGMP). They regulate the cellular levels, localization and duration of action of these second messengers by controlling the rate of their degradation. PDEs are expressed ubiquitously, with each subtype having a specific tissue distribution. These enzymes are involved in many signal transduction pathways and their functions include vascular smooth muscle proliferation and contraction, cardiac contractility, platelet aggregation, hormone secretion, immune cell activation, and they are involved in learning and memory. PDE3A has high affinity for both cAMP and cGMP and shows competitive inhibition of the cAMP hydrolytic activity by cGMP. It plays a critical role in regulating intracellular levels of cAMP and cGMP.
