Human GAP43 Protein Product Information
Synonym:B-50, PP46
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the human GAP43 (P17677) (Met 1-Ala 238) was fused with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
Expressed Host:Human Cells
Shipping: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.
Human GAP43 Protein QC Testing
Purity:> 96 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Endotoxin:< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Stability:Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃
Predicted N Terminal:Met 1
Molecule Mass:The recombinant human GAP43 consists of 249 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 26.2 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, the apparent molecular mass of rhGAP43 is approximately 47 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.

GAP-43 Background

Neuromodulin, also known as Axonal membrane protein GAP-43, Growth-associated protein 43, Neural phosphoprotein B-50, pp46 and GAP43, is a cell membrane protein which belongs to the neuromodulin family. Neuromodulin / GAP43 contains one IQ domain. Neuromodulin / GAP43 is associated with nerve growth. It is a major component of the motile "growth cones" that form the tips of elongating axons. Neuromodulin / GAP43 is involved in neurite outgrowth, a crucial process for the differentiation of neurons. The sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is the main cause of postneonatal infant death and its cause is still unknown. Neuromodulin / GAP43 is a marker of synaptic plasticity and is critical for normal development of the serotonergic innervation. Neuromodulin / GAP43 is a major cortical cytoskeleton-associated and calmodulin binding protein that is widely and abundantly expressed during development, maintained in selected brain structures in the adult, and reinduced during nerve regeneration. CAP23 and GAP43 are functionally related intrinsic determinants of anatomical plasticity. These proteins function by locally promoting subplasmalemmal actin cytoskeleton accumulation.
