ECH1 produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 316 amino acids (34-328a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 34.4kDa.ECH1 is fused to a 21 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
ECH1 is a member of the hydratase/isomerase superfamily. ECH1 demonstrates high sequence similarity to enoyl-coenzyme A (CoA) hydratases of more than a few species, mostly within a conserved domain characteristic of these proteins. ECH1 contains a C-terminal peroxisomal targeting sequence, localizes to both the peroxisome and the mitochondria. peroxisomal takes part in the auxiliary step of the fatty acid beta-oxidation pathway specifically functioning to catalyze the isomerization of 3-trans, 5-cis-dienoyl-CoA to 2-trans, 4-transdienoyl-CoA.
peroxisomal, enoyl Coenzyme A hydratase 1.
Sterile Filtered clear solution.
The ECH1 protein solution (1mg/1ml) is formulated in 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH8.0) 1mM DTT, 50mM NaCl, and 10% 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.
