Human PHYH Protein Product Information
Synonym:PHYH, PAHX
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the human PHYH (O14832) (Ser31-Leu338) was expressed, with a N-terminal Met.
Expressed Host:E. coli
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 PHYH Protein QC Testing
Purity:> 80 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Endotoxin:Please contact us for more information.
Stability:Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃
Predicted N Terminal:Met
Molecule Mass: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.
Formulation: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.
Human PHYH Protein Usage Guide
Storage: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.
Reconstitution:A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.

PHYH Background

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.
