ATOX1 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 88 amino acids (1-68 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 9.5kDa. ATOX1 is fused to a 20 amino acid His Tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
ATOX1 is a metal transport protein that is part of the ATX1 family. ATOX1 is a copper chaperone that takes part in cellular antioxidant defense and can bind and deliver cytosolic copper to the copper ATPase proteins in the trans-Golgi network for later incorporation to the ceruloplasmin. ATOX1 plays a role as an antioxidant against superoxide and hydrogen peroxide, and consequently, takes an important part in cancer carcinogenesis. Because of ATOX1 cytogenetic location, the gene can be a good a candidate gene for 5q-syndrome.
