CDK5 Human Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 316 amino acids (1-292) and having a molecular mass of 35.8kDa. CDK5 is fused to a 24 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Cell division protein kinase 5 (CDK5) belongs to the cyclin-dependent kinase family. CDK5 is essential for appropriate development of the brain and in order to be activated CDK5 must link to CDK5R1 or CDK5R2. CDK5 doesn't need phosphorylation on the T loop so that binding with the activator is enoµgh to activate the kinase. CDK5 is engaged in the processes of neuronal maturation and migration, phosphorylating the central intracellular adaptor of the reeling signaling chain.

Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks. Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
