EDF1 Recombinant Human produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 156 amino acids (1-148 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 17.4 kDa. The EDF1 is fused to 8 amino acid His-Tag at C-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
EDF1 controls endothelial cell differentiation. EDF1 has a role as a bridging protein that interconnects regulatory proteins and the basal transcriptional machinery, thus modulating the transcription of genes that take part in endothelial differentiation. EDF1 binds calmodulin throµgh its IQ domain and controls nitric oxide synthase activity via calmodulin sequestration in the cytoplasm. EDF1 is localized in adult liver, heart, adipose tissues, intestine and pancreas.
