|A DNA sequence encoding the human PHYH (O14832) (Ser31-Leu338) was expressed, with a N-terminal Met.|
|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.
|> 80 % 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 PHYH consists of 309 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 35.6 KDa. It migrates as an approximately 26-32 KDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.|
|Lyophilized from sterile 20mM mops, 10% glycerol, 2mM DDT, 1mM EDTA, 0.2mM PMSF, 0.2M NaCl, pH 7.2|
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.|
PHYH belongs to the family of iron(II)-dependent oxygenases, which typically incorporate one atom of dioxygen into the substrate and one atom into the succinate carboxylate group. PHYH is expressed in liver, kidney, and T-cells, but not in spleen, brain, heart, lung and skeletal muscle. It converts phytanoyl-CoA to 2-hydroxyphytanoyl-CoA. Defects in PHYH can cause Refsum disease (RD). RD is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized clinically by a tetrad of abnormalities: retinitis pigmentosa, peripheral neuropathy, cerebellar ataxia, and elevated protein levels in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Patients exhibit accumulation of the branched-chain fatty acid, phytanic acid, in blood and tissues.
