|A DNA sequence encoding the mature form of human GALE (Q14376) (Met1-Ala348) was expressed with a polyhistidine 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.
|> 95 % 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 GALE consists of 363 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 40.1 KDa. It migrates as an approximately 36 KDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.|
|Lyophilized from sterile 20mM HEPES, 150mM NaCl, 10% Glycerol, pH 7.5.|
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.|
UDP galactose-4'-epimerase, also known as GALE, enables the body to process a simple sugar called galactose, which is present in small amounts in many foods. Galactose is primarily part of a larger sugar called lactose, which is found in all dairy products and many baby formulas. UDP galactose-4'-epimerase catalyzes two distinct but analogous reactions: the epimerization of UDP-glucose to UDP-galactose, and the epimerization of UDP-N-acetylglucosamine to UDP-N-acetylgalactosamine. Defects in GALE causes epimerase-deficiency galactosemia (EDG), also known as galactosemia type 3. Clinical features include early-onset cataracts, liver damage, deafness and mental retardation.
