GCSH Human Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 149 amino acids (48-173) and having a molecular mass of 16.4 kDa.GCSH is fused to a 24 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
There are four mitochondrial proteins composing the enzyme system for cleavage of glycine (glycine cleavage system): P protein, H protein, T protein, and L protein. GCSH is the H protein. GCSH transfers the methylamine group of glycine from the P protein to the T protein. Mutations in this gene results in nonketotic hyperglycinemia (NKH).
Glycine cleavage system protein H (aminomethyl carrier), NKH, GCE, Lipoic acid-containing protein, Mitochondrial glycine cleavage system H-protein.
Sterile Filtered colorless solution.
The GCSH solution (1mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0), 1mM DTT, 0.15M 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.
