CNN1 Human Recombinant produced in E. coli is a single polypeptide chain containing 305 amino acids (1-297) and having a molecular mass of 34.2 kDa.CNN1 is fused to an 8 amino acid His-tag at C-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
CNN1 is a member of the calponin family. CNN1 is a thin filament-associated protein which is involved in the regulation and modulation of smooth muscle contraction. CNN1 is able to bind to actin, calmodulin, troponin C and tropomyosin. Prevention of actomyosin Mg-ATPase activity is a result of interaction between calponin and actin.
The CNN1 solution (1mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0), 0.15M NaCl, 1mM DTT and 30% glycerol.
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.
