PCK1 Human Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 646 amino acids (1-622) and having a molecular mass of 71.7kDa.PCK1 is fused to a 24 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
PCK1 is a central regulating point for the regulation of gluconeogenesis. PCK1 has a vital part in this process by stimulating hepatic glucose production. The expression of PCK1 is controlled by insulin, cAMP, glucagon, glucocorticoids and diet. Modulation of the signals controlling PCK1 levels offers a possible therapeutic tactic to the treatment of Insulin resistance and subsequently obesity.
The PCK1 solution (0.5mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0), 100mM NaCl, 1mM DTT 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.
