MCTF1 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 204 amino acids (1-181 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 22.9kDa. MCTF1 is fused to a 23 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Short chain dehydrogenase/reductase family 16C, member5 (SDR16C5) is active in the oxidative direction as well as in the reductive one. SDR16C5 oxidizes all-trans-retinol in all-trans-retinaldehyde. No activity was detected with 11-cis-retinol or 11-cis-retinaldehyde as substrates with either NAD+/NADH or NADP+/NADPH.
MCTF1 protein solution (0.5mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0), 0.15M NaCl, 20% glycerol and 1mM DTT.
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.
