RBKS Human Recombinant fused with a 20 amino acid His tag at N-terminus produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 342 amino acids (1-322 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 36.3kDa. The RBKS is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Ribokinase (RBKS) is a member of the pfkB family of carbohydrate kinases. Ribokinase phosphorylates ribose to form ribose-5-phosphate in the presence of ATP and magnesium as a first step in ribose metabolism.
Ribokinase, RBKS, RBSK, DKFZp686G13268.
Sterile Filtered colorless solution.
The RBKS solution (1 mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0) and 10% glycerol.
RBKS should be stored desiccated below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
