PFDN5 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 174 amino acids (1-154 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 19.5kDa.PFDN5 is fused to a 20 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
PFDN5 is a member of the prefoldin alpha subunit family. Prefoldin (PFDN) being a ubiquitously expressed heterohexameric co-chaperone, is required for proper folding of nascent proteins, in particular, tubulin and actin. PFDN5 is one of 6 subunits of prefoldin, which is a molecular chaperone complex that binds and stabilizes newly synthesized polypeptides, thus allowing them to fold properly. The PFDN5 protein may also limit the transcriptional activity of the proto-oncogene c-Myc.
PFDN5 protein solution (1mg/ml) containing 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0), 2mM 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.
