HPCAL1 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 213amino acids (1-193a.a.) and having a molecular wieght of 24.4kDa. The HPCAL1 is fused to 20a.a. His-Tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
HPCAL1, participates in neuron-specific calcium-binding proteins family found in the retina and brain. HPCAL1 is extremely comparable to human hippocalcin protein and almost equal to the rat and mouse hippocalcin like-1 proteins. HPCAL1 takes part in the calcium-dependent regulation of rhodopsin phosphorylation and can have importance in neuronal signalling in the central nervous system.
Hippocalcin-Like 1, HLP2, BDR1, Calcium-Binding protein BDR-1, Visinin-Like protein 3, VILIP-3
Sterile filtered colorless solution.
The HPCAL1 protein solution (1mg/1ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH8.0) containing 1mM DTT 0.2M 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.
